Volcanic Ash Layer, aerial photo
County Kerry, Ireland

Aerial photo of volcanic ash layer from 4000 ft. Our position was
overhead Anascaul on the Dingle peninsula looking NNW to Brandon
village at 2.50 pm, 9 May 2010.
The pilot said he'd never seen this before. We dropped down to 2000ft
but the layer was no longer visible from the lower altitude. On landing,
there was a light but definite fine covering of white/pinkish dust on the
plane's struts.
Another possibility for this dark layer could be smoke from forest fires
in county Clare the previous day.
