Stromboli volcano erupting

Stromboli volcano erupting

After a 3-hour trek up to the crater of the volcano that gives the island of Stromboli its name, we were rewarded with fantastic views of magma explosions and lava flows. The twin furnaces were continuously spitting out magma, allowing me to try several different exposure lengths. However, I was only quick enough to grab one shot of a massive explosion that blew molten rock 20 feet into the air!
