On 17 Oct, explosions were particularly violent at Anak Krakatau. We show a series of images of a spectacular explosion captured from close range by boat. 2 months later, the cone of Anak Krakatau collapsed into the sea on the evening of 22 Dec 2018, triggering a catastrophic tsunami. The following sequence of pictures was taken within few seconds from each other each. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

Popocatepetl is one of Mexico's most active volcanoes and also part of an Aztec legend, a warrior who fell in love with a young woman (Iztaccihuatl) who died while he was away in battle. He is said to be still mourning for her.

Popocatepetl is located more or less 40 miles southeast of Mexico City. (Photo: RGoadPhotography)
