This Photographer Takes Breathtaking Pictures Of Volcanoes Erupting

You've never seen volcanoes like this before.

Japan is one of the most active volcanic regions in the world, and one professional photographer captures volcanic eruptions in a captivating way.

Takehito Miyatake

Takehito Miyatake always possessed "a sense of awe and reverence for nature," he told A+.

Miyatake's strategy is risky, he waits through the night with his telephoto lens affixed on a volcano hoping that it might erupt. But when one does, he captures its majesty by prolonging his camera's exposure.

He told A+ he's fascinated by the unique volcanic rock and the "burning red cinders drawing shining trajectories."

To strike a balance, he applies the same techniques when photographing water. You can see his entire gallery here.
