Klyuchevskoy Eruption

The Russian peninsula of Kamchatka is a land of volcanoes. During my journey there between October 14 to 26, 2013, I visited the active volcanoes Klyuchevskoy and Sheveluch.

The former erupted for the first time in three years. During its strongest eruptive phase (shown above), lava fountains rose up to 0.6 mi (1 km) above the summit dome, and explosions could be heard at a distance of 19 mi (30 km) away.

Note the funnel shaped cloud of steam and smoke above Klyuchevskoy’s concealed, volcanic cone. Photo taken on October 16, 2013, at a distance of approximately 9.5 mi (15 km). - Marc Szeglat
