Is this a beach?
Land on top of water?
Volcanic stones sitting on top of the ocean (density of land must be lighter then the water).
Yacht cruises through land.
Aftermath of cruising through the land.
Edge of land started to build up more land.
Volcano then erupts, spewing ash and smoke into the sky.
Red plumes of ash and smoke.
Sky fills with ash, ocean reflects sun’s golden rays.
Higher land mass begins to form, possible mountain peaks.
More eruptions into the sky and sea.
Within minutes, land begin to build on top of previous formation.
As the volcano cools, more land mass is formed.
The early stage of an island.
Wow those pictures were beautiful. I can’t believe humans stumbled upon this while sailing at sea. What a major WIN! for them.
But that is life on Earth, filled with surprise and beauty.
