The crew of the yacht Maiken made pictures of the birth of an new island.
First they sailed through a layer of volcanic ashes and rocks:

After that they spotted a new volcanic island in the making at the horizon:

Read the article "Tonga volcanic eruption seen by yacht crew" on the Tonga online news here:

And see all the pics on the "Frederick and Crew on Maiken" Blog here:

I wonder if the earthquake action in Tonga and birth of the island are closely related? Very cool shots!
So who owns the beachfront property????
