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:
