First off, I wanted to thank everyone who has submitted volcanoes images so far. They are an remarkable collection (see examples above and below) that I will start using with the articles as they fit. Thank you for sharing these images and your experiences with me (and eventually, with the readers of Eruptions).

That being said, send me (more) pictures of volcanoes - erupting or not - that I might use on the blog. I will be sure to give you appropriate credit for the image and if you'd like me to link to your homepage/blog/website whatever, I can do that as well.

If you do choose to send me images, please make sure to list the volcano, approximately when you took it and any other pertinent information (such as the details or memories of when you took it).

Please send images to eruptionsblog [at symbol] gmail.com. I look forward to your images!
