Have you been affected by Eyjafjallajökull? Let's just refer to it as "the volcano," shall we?

Tours by is a Vancouver-based website, connecting tour guides with tourists around the world. They have just reported today, that their local guides in Iceland are turning the volcano into proverbial lemonade.

Tony Brackley, an accomplished photographer in Iceland, has combined his photographic talents and love for adventure into the Photographers Volcano Tour. On this 6-hour tour, Tony will take groups up to four in his comfortable 4x4 Jeep to the best vantage points to see and photograph the volcano while it's active.
