Volcanoes 2011

Puyehue-Cordon Caulle

The Atlantic's news photography blog "In Focus" has compiled a post with 36 photos of active volcanoes during 2011, from countries such as Chile, Japan and Iceland.

Out of an estimated 1,500 active volcanoes around the world, 50 or so erupt every year, spewing steam, ash, toxic gases, and lava.

I didn't realise there were so many active volcanoes. Number 5 really gets to me - I'd be so terrified if I saw that column of cloud, yet the locals seem more interested than panicked.
