Mount Redoubt Eruptions

First Photo by Bryan Mulder. Alaska’s Mount Redoubt volcano began erupting on March 22, 2009, and continues intermittently. The extent of the eruptions have not been fully determined, but reports have found ash clouds reaching as high as 65,000 feet (20,000 m) above sea level. These eruptions of Mount Redoubt have been the most seismic activity occurring on the mountain in twenty years.

Train Wreck at Montparnasse, 1895

On the 22 of October, 1895 the Granville-Paris Express overran a buffer stop at The Gare Montparnasse (Train station). The engine careened across almost 30 metres (98 ft) of the station concourse, crashed through a 60-centimetre (24 in) thick wall, shot across a terrace and sailed out of the station, plummeting onto the Place de Rennes 10 metres (33 ft) below, where it stood on its nose. All on board the train survived, five sustaining injuries: two passengers (out of 131), the fireman and two conductors; however, one woman on the street below was killed by falling masonry.

This blog is a collection of photos I have found around the internet. From famous battles, great sporting moments or just anything I find to be thought provoking. I do not take credit for any of the photos and any uncredited photos are because I have been unable to find the photographer/artist. Enjoy :) Mirror Eyes - Blogged
