This is one I’ve had sitting here for a while. I was saving it for when I didn’t have time to get a photo finished. I guess this will work.

This was taken while we were anchored below Mt Etna in Sicily. Mt Etna is one of the worlds most active volcanoes. I was working the night shift that trip and as a result was able to watch Etna as tiny fingers of lava ran down it’s side in addition to the lava being spewed out of the vent. It wasn’t a particularly large eruption however being the first active eruption i’ve ever seen it was still pretty cool to watch.

The photo was taken as the sun was coming up and I was coming off shift and heading down for some breakfast and bed.
