Ash Cloud Sunset

It was all over the news. Ash clouds from a volcano in Iceland were heading towards Europe. Airspace was closed, flights cancelled and planes grounded around 6 P.M. C.E.T. I was keeping an eye out this afternoon and later on in the evening but from what I've seen it hasn't been that spectacular (so far). Some thin high clouds in the sky. Internet newspapers also mentioned that we could be having a deep 'red sunset' due to the ash in the sky. Took the shot above around that time and there were some pinkish/reddish clouds. Nothing Earth-shattering.
