A Minimum of Awe

Taking a quick break at work to post my book of the day.

148. The Red Volcanoes: Face to Face with the Mountains of Fire by G. Brad Lewis and Paul-Edouard Bernard de Lajartre

There are a couple of general introductions to volcanoes and their beauty, and then to the two volcanic areas and communities portrayed here (Piton de la Fournaise, on Reunion, and Kilauea in Hawaii), but mostly the amazing photographs speak for themselves. I don’t know why, but I was especially struck by the photograph on pages 110-111, of a lava flow over Kamoamoa beach.
