Most Spectacular Active Volcano Photos in The World

active-volcano-photos-3

Active volcanoes are one of earth’s most dramatic items. Their explosive eruptions sending ash, rock, flames, and smoke thousands of feet into the air and concussive shocks ripping down their mountainous sides. Flaming stone spitting towards the sky or flowing towards the sea. The can also exhibit true beauty. When the volcano rests, the craters fill with water creating magnificent lakes with untold power hiding beneath. During massive eruptions lightning storms light the sky creating beautiful shows of power from the static electricity produced. The drama, the color, the power, and fear that leaps from these creations of nature are fearful for anyone to approach, but for our benefit, a few photographers brave the dangers and bring us magic.
