Challenge #1 in the Art of Earth series. Hosted by luxborealis.
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.

The volcanic erruption in 1973 on the Westman Islands was remarkable in that the town of Heimaey was largely spared. Here you see how close it came to the local church. In the middle of the following extract you can see exactly the same view during the erruption. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ddmJOD2OrU
