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.

They say the best camera is the one you have with you. Well, I had a Lumix FX01 and this is what I got. This is the Waikupanaha lava entry. Lava is carried through a lava tube from Kilauea. The steam pictured is the result of 2100 degree lava hitting the 80 degree water. I'm about a half a mile or so past the official viewing area. The ground is hot and steam is coming through the cracks. This is taken at 28mm so I'm actually a good deal closer than it appears in the image. Lots of fun!
