Heaven and Hell: Mount Etna Erupts
An angry Mount Etna scorches the skies over Sicily with a tremendous eruption. Taken on December 3 by Sicilian photographer Marco Restivo, 29, these incredible pictures show Europe’s tallest active volcano spitting fire and sending plumes of smoke into the air. This is the first eruption to reach the surface of Etna’s Voragine crater in two years. Snapper Marco used photo editing software to overlap five images to create one single picture which shows volcano lightning under a cloud of dense smoke.
