In a scene resembling the depths of hell, a surge of magma escapes volcano Erta Ale in Ethiopia resulting in a dramatic flood of lava. Such an incredibly rare moment as this has never been witnessed before, and was a result of the tectonic plates in the area rifting apart, and great timing from the volcano tour group. The Volcano Discovery tour group were led across the volcano by an experienced geologist in January 2017, and all wore gas masks and heat-resistant boots.
