Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

Sunset over Frankfurt, as photographed from the bedroom window. This sunset was influenced by the Icelandic volcano, Eyjafjallajökull. The light gold above the sun is a real cloud, but the darker haze surrounding the sun is the ash cloud. This ash cloud made the sun look fuzzy and at times, almost completely obscured it.
Today, the sky cleared for a few hours and everything seemed normal once more, but in the evening, the volcanic ash clouds rolled again, obscuring the hills that surround Frankfurt and making my eyes burn once more. (If you look at the bottom 1/5th of the above image, you can barely see the horizon surrounding Frankfurt, as well as a few closer buildings located in front of the horizon)
Amazingly, there were several contrails over Frankfurt, despite the haze.
