Grand illustration!

Looks like some whaling vessels.
What's that going off in the
background, a volcano???
It reminds me when our ship sailed
the Mediterrainean, and we went into
port off the coast of Sicily. In
the distance, Mount Etna was erupting.
Great descriptive picture!!! Thanks!

Re: Grand illustration!

Thank you, found it on an obscure Icelandic website while researching my Skaftafell page. I rather like it too.

All the best
