Stromboli by night
The fall of material during an Strombolian explosion.
Strombolian eruptions are one of the most awe-inspiring and beautiful things that you may ever see. I could probably leave this post at that! Here are a couple of my attempts at capturing events in progress. This particularly event (photo at the bottom taken before the one on the right), was strong enough to occur from one of the major vents and a smaller one very close simultaneously, indicating that they share a magma/gas pathway at very shallow levels. We were sat on a ledge just below the major touristic viewing area and I tell you what, even from around 300-400 metres away you can really feel the heat! If you ever have the chance to see this activity at night (the darker the better), I highly recommend it! Eventually I will upload all of my photos into my photos section.
