Not to long ago an image of a powerful explosion at Colima Volcano in western Mexico taken by photographer Sergio Tapiro Velasco blew up on social media, no pun intended. Personally I have always been drawn towards the dramatic approach of photography, however I’ve never fully payed attention on volcano photography – until now. Here are 6 explosive images of volcanoes:
