Lava lake photos

Lava lakes are accumulations of larger volumes of liquid lava above one or several vents, unsually contained within a crater on the summit of the volcano. Volcanoes with eruptions that produce long-lasting lava lakes are relatively rare; some volcanoes are famous for their lava lakes: Kilauea (Hawaii), Erta Ale (Ethiopia), Nyiragongo (at present probably the most violent lava lake in the world, about 120 meters wide). Here are some photos about lava lakes from our archive:

Erta Ale volcano's lava lake back in Nov 2009.  
The red glow of the lava illuminates the crater walls under the blue sky of dusk. A small group of observers is on the left crater rim. 
During the past 7 years, the lava lake has gradually risen. As of now (Dec 2016), the lava lake has completely filled the pit crater and constructed a new shield by ongoing overflows.  (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

Vertical view onto the lava lake in the evening showing a typical scene of activity: 3 areas at the lake shore are moderately fountaining and several rifts occur on the surface of the lake, driven by internal convection of the magma. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)
