Arriesgando la vida para fotografiar el volcán más activo del mundo. El volcán Kilauea es considerado el más activo del mundo.

Arriesgando la vida para fotografiar el volcán más activo del mundo

Ubicado en Hawai, este gigante ha hecho erupción al menos 35 veces durante las últimas cinco décadas, liberando un volumen de material tal que si se usará para pavimentar una carretera alrededor de la Tierra el camino completaría tres vueltas. Arriesgando evidentemente su vida, el fotógrafo Miles Morgan decidió excursionar al interior del Kilauea para documentar una serie de ígneos paisajes que pocos humanos han tenido el privilegio, y la osadía, de observar con sus propios ojos. Tras haber penetrado en el vientre de este volcán, el fotógrafo de 41 años procedió a registrar el encuentro de la lava y el agua marina.

La lava que arroja el Kilauea tarda aproximadamente cuatro horas en recorrer las seis millas de distancia que le separan de la costa. n02_sean-heavey.jpg (JPEG Imagen, 990x567 píxeles) "Venezuela.

It might if Chile continues with plans to build five hydro-power dams in Patagonia. Photo #7 by © Jorge Leon Cabello The water has eroded the marble to create cavities and marble caves. There are different color shades, depending on the contents’ impurities. There are white banks of great purity, but it is also possible to find blue and pink marble banks due to the presence of other minerals.

Amazing geological formations on Chilean side of Lake Carrera. It would be a real shame if the hydro-power dams damage the lake and the marble caves on top of the surrounding natural habitats for wildlife.

Still Looking For Paradise? Maldives -

It consists of approximately 1,190 coral islands grouped in a double chain of 26 atolls, along the north-south direction, spread over roughly 90,000 square kilometers, making this one of the most disparate countries in the world. The atolls are composed of live coral reefs and sand bars, situated atop a submarine ridge 960 kilometers long that rises abruptly from the depths of the Indian Ocean and runs from north to south. Crystal clear waters, beautiful white sand beaches, swaying palm trees and fabulous dive sites – that’s why the Maldives, is known for being one of the best tropical holiday destinations in the world. ...and no need to climb ;) With an average ground level of 1.5 metres (4 ft 11 in) above sea level, it is the lowest country on the planet.
