Some of you may be familiar with Olympus Mons which is Mars’ largest volcano. BUT DID YOU KNOW IT IS THIS BIG!!?!??
Ball’s Pyramid is the tallest volcanic stack in the world. It rises 562 meters above the waters and is located 20 km southeast of Lord Howe Island, in the Pacific Ocean. This formation is all that remains from a shield volcano that was formed 7 million years ago.
Volcanic system of Iceland
This map shows just how Iceland is split in half between the North American and Eurasian plates.
“Starting at Kalapana, Hawaii I walked for two hours right to the place on the coast where active lava flows were touching the ocean.
I was overwhelmed about the scene: Hot air touched my face as I stood at the edge of the cliff, steam drifted away by the strong wind, thunders in my ears as the waves crushed on the melted stones and water fought with fire.
I stood and watched the lava flows started to glow as it became darker. I wanted to express what happened there. All four elements – water, fire, air and earth came together at that point to show how they’re playing the game. — Jennifer Vahlbruch
