Last April, and for the first time in more than 40 decades, the Chilean volcano “Calbuco” erupted. Martin Heck, master of timeslapses, was there to capture the stunning spreading of the ash cloud.
From its 2 003 meters high, Calbuco spat a huge column of smoke and ash, similar to “a massive, almost nuclear looking cloud boiling upwards”. Seeing such a phenomenon, Martin hurried to find a non-forested place to “quickly put every bit of camera-equipment” to film this huge mushroom.
“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.”
