2011 has seemed like quite a year for volcanos, although, perhaps we’re really just astonished by them more than ever? It’s not like the volcanos got together and decided that 2011 was gonna be a crazy year, you know what I mean? Anyhow, The Atlantic’s In Focus photo blog has collected together a series of the best volcano related photos from the past year, and there are some really beautiful images to be seen.
The image at top is from Puyehue volcano near Osorno in southern Chile, the middle photo is from Nahuel Huapi Lake in Villa La Angostura in southern Argentina, and the bottom image is from the same location as the top image. Pretty crazy stuff. You can check out the full series of photos by clicking here.
