The natural world. Looking pretty for 3.5b years.

Sea Mountains

Sea-mounts include underwater volcanoes.

Author: Hugh Bollinger/Monday, April 29, 2013/Categories: natural history, photography

Vast under-sea mountain ranges exist around the planet. Most are little known or studied. Such sea-mount provide a striking image when one is an exploding volcano like eruption of El Hierro volcano in the Canary Islands.

This would make an amazing dive site for underwater photography and video but not particularly safe to be there when erupting.
