In these amazing photos, ash from an erupting underwater volcano spreads throughout the sea near the southern tip of El Hierro island. It probably goes without saying, but a vacation here wouldn't be a good idea at the moment.

Seismic activity first began in the region on July 17 and more than 10,000 tremors have occurred since then.
