Photos: Volcanism in Chile (3)

A final set of photos, relating to volcanism in Chile. In certain areas around the world associated with active volcanism, groundwater boils due to the proximity of magma and this causes steam and boiling water to erupt at the surface out of a vent. These are quite rare, but make spectacular viewing. These photos were taken at the El Tatio Geysers, Chile.
