This was taken just before sunrise this morning, right on the rim!
You are looking at the lava lake, 200m across, bubbling with house-sized bursts of lava disturbing the crusty surface. Very dramatic and changing moods continually from quiet to violent!
This one was taken just after the radio interview…..I’m looking a bit stunned, I know……but I was!
Dee and I just before sunrise this morning, on the rim.
This shot shows the depth of the crater nicely, with my camera hard at work. The time lapse video I did shows a very dynamic movement of the crust plates floating and moving on the lake, being sucked down back into the bowels of the earth!
