These fascinating story is well known but I wanted to quote it once again for those of you who missed it. American photographer Robert Landsberg was filming Mount St. Helens when it erupted on May 18, 1980. He was shooting as long as he could. After he realized that he would not be able to survive he rewinded the film back, placed his camera into the backpack and covered it with his body in order to protect it. Landsberg's body was found buried in the ash 17 days later. The film could be developed and the photos were published in the January 1981 issue of National Geographic. You can see these photos after the jump. I added the rest of the pictures to show the eruption of Mount St. Helen and its aftermath.

I was living in Germany at the time of the eruption. It was covered by the news
everywhere it seemed like. Such a huge blast. It's amazing the amount of energy
that was released. Robert Landsberg is immortalized now because of his swift
thinking. RIP Rob.

I lived in Sacramento, California when this happened. Our neighbor drove a truck all through Northern California, Oregon and Washington. He was in Oregon when it happened and by the time he got home his truck was covered in ash. In fact for what seemed like weeks we would see cars driving with ash still on them. I remember collecting ash off the neighbors truck and saving it.

A very brave thing to do when you realize you're going to die at any moment.
