Photo by Simon Norfolk @simonnorfolkstudio I Ascension Island is a small, isolated volcanic island in the middle of the South Atlantic, located 1,400 miles from the coast of South America and 1,000 miles from Africa. Much of the island is a wasteland of lava flows and cinder cones; forty-four distinct dormant craters have been identified. It is home to a British Royal Air Force station, a European Space Agency rocket tracking station, a US/UK signals intelligence facility, and a BBC relay station. In 2016, the United States Department of Energy started operating a mobile climate research facility on the island.
Here, the view takes in an ash and lava field and the cinder cone of Sister’s Peak, on the edge of the Broken Tooth Live Firing Range. Follow me @simonnorfolkstudio for updates, outtakes, unpublished, and archive material.
