A 4K Timelapse of the Calbuco Volcano That Exploded Over Chile

When the Calbuco volcano in southern Chile erupted back in April, one photographer captured footage from the moment of explosion and another one managed to shoot a short time-lapse sequence of the plumes. German time-lapse photographer Martin Heck of Timestorm Films just released an amazing video of his own.

Above is his 2.5-minute time-lapse titled “Calbuco,” which has gotten quite a bit of attention on the Internet over the past few days since it was published.


Heck says that he was in the area shooting a time-lapse project and on a ferry down to Patagonia when he noticed the eruption. “We noticed a massive, almost nuclear looking cloud boiling upwards just were we left a few hours ago,” he writes.

After “frenetically” searching for a good vantage point, he set up a Canon 6D, Sony A7s and Pentax 645Z to capture 4K and 8K frames for a time-lapse. “We filled almost all of our memory cards in the prior night so I had to do backups while shooting all this stuff,” he says.


“This was for sure the most incredible show I’ve ever seen. I think this is a one in a lifetime event and I am so happy that we were able to capture it in all its glory.”

Incredible Photos of Iceland’s Erupting Volcano

A daring photographer captures the view of the Holuhraun eruption 

Flying over an active volcano isn’t exactly safe, but it can make for some stunning pictures. Iceland’s Holuhraun lava field has been active since August 16, but in the past week the eruptions have been intensifying and photographer Iurie Belegurshi of Guide to Iceland was there to capture the action. 

Belegurshi captured these amazing images from a helicopter  last week as lava spewed up to 150 meters high (approximately 500 feet) from the lava fields. According to scientists from Iceland’s Met Office the activity at Holuhraun remains  just as intense as last week.
