Henri Buffetaut proposed to share with you some beautiful images of Stromboli taken on May 17th.
As he comments: "We were fortunate to have a favorable weather window, the gases were only invasive once and most of the explosions, fairly regular, were accompanied by small black plumes of ash." .
Stromboli activity was relatively stable at this time, fluctuating between low and moderate levels.
The interval between Strombolian explosions was a few minutes, mainly characterizing the northeastern vent and the westernmost vent of the crater terrace, with typical incandescent ejections between 80 and 150 meters in height.
The west vent, particularly active, had frequent explosions rich in ashes.
Our friend Henri is an architect, archigrapher, artistic director and professional photographer. He combines these fascinating professions in the field of fashion and in the observation of natural phenomena.
