Krakatoa sunsets, 1883 artworks , History c/o Science Photo Library.

Thank you to the Science photo gallery (website above) for information about the artist William Ashcroft. I love these expressive paintings documenting the dramatic sunsets over London caused by the eruption of Krakatoa. They spontaniously catch the fleeting changing light through on the spot observations.
