We’ve featured quite a few photo collections from Russian dudes recently. I don’t know if it’s the harsh baltic winds, the macho atmos or the penchant for vodka, but they seem to be willing to go that extra mile to get some incredible footage. Today we feature Alexandre Socci, or Lusika33, who is a Russian blogger and photographer. When the Tolbachik volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula (far eastern Russia) started kicking off recently he went for a look. Instead of being sensible and watching the eruption from afar, he and his mates had to get right up in there so they could smell the sulphur and feel the burn. They are nuts, of course, and you wouldn’t catch me anywhere near a volcano that was promising to spew out molten lumps at me, but I’m glad he did it so I can enjoy the pics. And so can you.

I particularly love their night shots, they are genuinely otherworldly with the big ass moon just hanging there in its gentle, misty shroud with the gnarly ultra hot rocks glowing below. Lava can be as hot as 1200 degrees Celsius, so no touching please.
