The molten lava churns in on itself as fresh magma from below the Earth's crust arrives at the surface, before cooling and forming black crusts, which explode in flames. The incredible lava lake, at Mount Nyirangogo, an active volcano in Virunga National Park, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, was caught on camera by photographer Scott Ramsay during a hiking trip with pals. Scott, 41, from Cape Town, South Africa, said: "The lava is at a temperature of about 1200 degrees Celsius. It's worth remembering that water boils at just 100 degrees Celsius.
