September 2016 volcano eruption

The Piton de la Fournaise eruption that took place from September 11th-18th was very image-friendly: weather was generally good, and it was visible from Piton de Partage or Pas de Bellecombe. So local photographers were able to shoot a wide range of photos and films, some of the best of which are below. (I took my own pictures when I visited on September 16th/17th, but they're not as good as these!)
