Aerials oft the summit crates of Mount Etna in Sicily. 2 of the 4 craters are in focus: Bocca Nuova and New Southeastcrater. The shuts were made in November 2018, some days before the last flank eruption.
Eruption of kilauea volcano on Hawaii in May 2018. Watch Leilani’s fissure 8 during nigth. Lava fountains and blue flames of buring methane, escaping from holes and cracks in the ground in front of the lava flows.
Eruption of Kilauea on Hawaii. In 2018 fissures opened in Leilani Estates close to Paoha. Several lava fountains feeds lava flows, which destroyed huge parts of the settlement.
Kilauea’s Leilani-eruption took place on Hawaii and begun in May 2018. The lava lakes in the craters of Halema’uma’u and Pu’u O’o drained off through the east rift. A dyke intruded on the coastal plain near Pahoa. In Leilani-Estates more than 25 fissures opened. Lava fountains fed lava flows that reached the ocean. Several hundrets houses were destroyed.
Aerials, shot with a drone, of Campi Flegrei and Solfatara crater close to Naples in Italy. This volcano video was recorded in June 2017 with a DJI Phantom in 4K resolution.
Campi Flegrei is a huge caldera volcano, not far away from well known Mount Vesuvius. Campi Flegrei erupted before 39.000 years, which effected wide parts of Europe. Volcanic ashes were dicovered in distances of about 1500 km.
Volcano video of Stromboli in Italy. The aerial footage was shot with a drone in June 2017. Stromboli resumed to its normal activity after a 3 years long break. I used a DJI Phantom for shooting this 4K video.
This volcano video shows the ocean entry of lava flow 61g on Big Island Hawaii. The lava flow starts close to Kilauea’s Puʻu ʻŌʻō – cone and reaches the ocean by Kamokuna.
This shots were filmed in October 2016. I used a small drone for the aerials.
Masaya is a volcano close to Nicaraguas capital Managua. In the crater Santiago an active lava lake is boiling since December 2015. I visited the volcano with a team of the Volcanological Society e.V. and we get a permit to stay on the crater rim during day and night. So, I was able to shot this stunning volcano footage of a boiling lava lake.
About Masaya volcano
Masaya is not just the most active volcano of Nicaragua, its a very unusual one, too. The volcano lies within the Las Sierras shield volcano and is a 6 x 11 km caldera with walls up to 300 m high. The basaltic caldera is filled on its NW end by more than a dozen vents that erupted along a circular, 4-km-diameter fracture system. The twin volcanoes of Nindirí and Masaya were constructed at the southern end of the fracture system and contain multiple summit craters. One of this is the currently active Santiago crater. A lava flow from the 1670 eruption overtopped the north caldera rim. (Source USGS)
Volcanic lightning are rare phenomens which are difficult to capture on video. This one from Sakurajima volcano was made by a lot of single frames, each exposed for some seconds and animated via PC to a video sequence. The unique shots were licenced from several TV station all over the world.
Sakurajima means in English Cherry Blossom Island. It is an active stratovolcano and a former island in the Bay of Kagoshima in Kyushu, Japan. The lava flows of the 1914 eruption caused the former island to be connected with the Osumi Peninsula.
The volcanic activity is erupting large amounts of volcanic ash. Earlier eruptions built the white sands highlands in the region.
Sakurajima’s summit has three peaks: Kita-dake (northern peak), Naka-dake (central peak) and Minami-dake (southern peak). A smaller crater on its east side is called Showa. This is the site of most of the current eruptions.
Sakurajima is famouse for its volcanic lightning. (Sources WIKIPEDIA & USGS)
This volcano footage shows the eruption of Pico do Fogo in December 2014. The village Portela was destroyed by this eruption. The volcano is located on the Island Fogo. Fogo is one of the Cape Verde Islands and is of volcanic origin.
