 Welcome to my Eyeland!

 

The birth of an island is often a violent eruption. That’s half the story to the naked eye.

In the abyss however, a volcano has been slowly but steadily growing before erupting above sea level.

Near El Hierro in the Canaries a new island in the chain was born this way. It has been nicknamed the “Island of the Apocalypse”. It’s 21-12-2012 today after all.

This amazing footage takes you to Tonga archipelago in the Pacific and condenses 8 years of island creation in just a couple of minutes.
