This video was recorded April 22, 2015 of the Calbuco Eruption in Southern Chile.
The use of time-lapse footage and the music from “We wish it was never light – Anamog” come together artistically to demonstrate this powerful natural phenomenon. The volcanic plume from Calbuco is made up of hot ash, and when projected at high temperatures and speeds interact uniquely with the Earth’s atmosphere but with consequence. The ash particles are less than 200 microns in size and while they disperse in an artistic fashion, can be carried globally which pose public health and safety risks [1].

    First place for Best of Web. I like the idea that the video is of a naturally occurring event. An eruption has significant scientific properties that demonstrates flow physics. The color editing in the video brings in an artistic touch

    First prize! The time-lapse from 1:40 to 1:57 is particularly stunning. The intensity of the music (especially the flutes) really reinforces the scale of the visuals. What a great find.

    First place! What a breathtaking video… It’s strange how satisfying seeing an eruption like this is. The music combined with how these shots were recorded really makes for a unique experience and makes me appreciate nature even more.
