Mount Etna Volcano Photos by Lukas Furlan

Lukas Furlan is a Photographer living in South Tyrol, North Italy and studying in Vienna, Austria. He shared some incredible photos of his 9 day trip to the Mount Etna, an active volcano on the east coast of Sicily, Italy. I love how desolate the place looks mixed with the peaceful white snow the photos have a intriguing contrast, definitely worth checking them out.

Beautiful Pictures of Volcanos

We've seen these past few days the mega eruption of volcano Eyjafjallajökull that has caused big trouble all over Europe. We thought it would be nice to check the other side of these magnificient moments: the beauty of a volcano! Erupting or not, these amazing, living mountains got a tremendous amount of energy to spend and most of these pictures catch right that moment when lava explodes through the air. Anyways, I hope you all enjoy these, and don't forget to visit each photographer's page by clicking in each picture. Cheers! ;)
