The multicolored volcano of Dallol in Ethiopia
This multicolored volcano is located in the heart of the Danakil Desert, a particularly hostile area in northeast Ethiopia (Eastern Africa). The Dallol originates from the explosion of an immense reserve of magma. Since its eruption in 1926, the Dallol has transformed the region into one of the last hottest places on the planet. This landscape amazes by its palette of colors: yellow, red, green. These appear thanks to the high concentration of minerals such as sulfur or iron oxide. Depending on the color of the sky, the reflections in the sulfur lakes change hues. Photo credit: Stefano Mariconti
