Stunning Electric Blue Flames Erupt from Volcano (Video)

 

 

Olivier Grunewald, a widely recognized French photographer ventured the world to capture these spectacular images of volcanic eruptions.

He studied commercial advertising photography at the Gobelins School of the Image, in Paris. After his studies he began working as a freelance photographer specializing in sports, mountaineering and rock climbing and continued climbing and photographing for the next 10 years with a medium formatcamera.

Later in his career he switched to a large format camera and began to focus more on the wild nature, and a long term project on volcanoes. He travels all over the world and collaborates on projects with his wife, Bernadette Gilbertas, a geographer and journalist.

He has also produced documentaries on Wild Earth for Science and Nature magazine.

Since 1997, he specializes in volcanoes and travels the world to illustrate the diversity of the phenomena and the volcanic landscapes.

 

 

 

 

What we are viewing here is not really purple lava – the color of the lava is cloaked by the sulphuric acid burning in blue flames. This is referred to as a Cerulean eruption, The volcano comprises large amounts of pure sulfur, which gives off an icy violet color as it burns, filling the air with toxic fumes. These images were taken in a low lying field in Ethiopia.
