Volcanoes: Burning Beauties

by Yvette Depaepe 
Published the 24th of September 2021

All Nature's  wildness tells the same story: the shocks and outbursts of earthqueakes, volcanoes, geysers, roaring, thundering waves and floods, the silent up-rush of sap in plants, storms of every sort, each and all, are orderly, beauty-making love-beats of Nature's heart.

~John Muir~

'La Fournaise volcano' by Barathieu Gabriel (Reunion Island)


For a long time, volcanoes and volcanic mountains have been interesting subjects for many photographers, because these mountains often show a powerful force of nature when they are erupting, illustrate some perfect symmetric cone shape on the top when they are in silence, and are visible from a very far distance. All these features consist of special attractive elements from a photographic perspective.

1X has been a rich source of volcano images taken by the talented members and published over the years as well as recently.  

Enjoy these beautiful volcanoes or volcanic mountains – either in erupting of silent form
from all over the world.
