For a few months now Plosky-Tolbachik has been erupting, producing extensive lava flows and it continues to provide us with some amazing photos. I highly recommend having a look at the following site with some truly spectacular images of the current eruption. It may seem that the people are extremely close to the eruption, however, they are about 300 metres away according to the text underneath the pictures, which explains the nonchalant stance of one of the people near to the eruption!
I have pulled one of the photos off the reel and posted it to the right as it illustrates well what I have been talking about in recent posts about gas in volcanic eruptions. You can almost see the shape of the bubble which has burst at the surface by the trajectories of the lava.
