About these volcano photos / pictures / images from around the world...Something is usually happening somewhere in the world when it comes to active volcanoes. And if history is any indication, it is only a matter of time until another really bad situation comes along. At least there is one good thing about volcanoes in that they do give us some warning before the destruction begins.
These pictures are mostly from various USGS archives, bless their hearts. Lots of erupting volcanoes, lava flows, and a whole lot else. These volcanic photos / images / pictures are not
only "beautiful", but educational for kids and adults alike. USGS is a wealth of information as to anything geological. They are well worth your time.
