Ontake Eruption Photos

I found some photos from this Japanese website 

The first one was is a horribly sad. It was taken by a man who dies in the eruption. his wife allowed a Japanese paper to use the photo. I share it and send my thoughts to Izumi Noguchi and his family. Like most people who died in the eruption it was the volcanic bombs not the ash cloud that was killed him

Deadly eruption

I liked the spiritual and Scientific mix of this post eruption photo
