Blowing Off Steam

Blowing off steam-4731

The volcano’s latent energy, resting in plain sight, is awe-inspiring. Every once in a while, these sleeping giants will stir, blowing off a little steam, and commensurate ash, into the atmosphere… power and pressure constrained by the landscape at once expressed into the atmosphere as the earth seeks to maintain equilibrium, providing a momentary glimpse into earth’s past and the genesis of our world. 

This image shows Popocatépetl, south of Mexico City, as it let loose a little steam and ash…a simple reminder on the horizon that we must be vigilant and revere volcanoes for the hazards they introduce into our world aloft, even as they rest.
