Challenge has finished
Volcanoes are spectacular examples of how Earth renews itself in dramatic fashion. In this Challenge, you should submit a photograph of a volcano - either active, dormant or extinct - that best portrays the mood of the mountain. Photographers are asked to keep to the theme of this series by submitting images to illustrate the art inherent in nature using minimal post-capture processing to enhance what is already there.

I trekked Mt. Rinjani with two friends. At 3am in the camp on the rim of the volcano we decided not to summit (3700m) because it was raining and everything would have been hidden by clouds. Instead we chose to start at 5am and go about 1/3 of the way to a vantage where you can see the active volcano and the lava. When the sun came up it was still encased in clouds, but the sun burned enough off to give an amazing view of the rim.
