Have you ever heard the saying “the only constant in life is change”? Over time, everything changes. Sometimes drastic changes are difficult to recognize at the moment. That’s why we’re lucky to have photography to help us notice the changes that take place over time. Photography allows us to see the world around us throughout different time frames and gives us a comparison of naturally occurring changes over the years. Taking the time to witness these amazing transformations will leave you awestruck.
Destructive Eruption at Washington’s Mount Saint Helen’s
Mount Saint Helens volcano erupted in 1980 and was a natural catastrophe said to be one of the most destructive catastrophes to ever occur in United States History. This eruption was known for its incomprehensible damage, leaving Washington state demolished to ashes for thousands of miles and costing the U.S. 3.4 billion dollars in property damage.
This is what it looked like before and after the eruption, which is considered one of the most destructive volcanic events in U.S. history, both environmentally and economically. Following the eruption, the mountain was left 1,300 feet lower.
