  1. Those are amazing. The VOLCANO by beymen0 is particularly amazing, but the less dramatic ones are nice too.

  2. Hi Angie Bowen…Nice sharing..!
    Awesome photographs. These photographs are just WOW from first to last.

  3. Truly amazing shots! Especially the volcanoes (but I’m biased being a geol.) Why on earth would events that have been happening for literally billions of years be a cause for concern about the future? No they are not increasing in frequency as a rule. Not saying change doesn’t happen, it’s a constant. For e.g. the atmosphere is changing with climate change, but why do so many extend that to every type of natural disaster is increasing in frequency? No, nature is NOT unhappy with the humans, it’s just doing its thing.
