Volcanoes

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.

View from within Fundacion Cesar Manrique: a stunning architectural house (now museum) built in and around the lava flows of the surrounding volcanoes of Lanzarote. Here the lava flow is allowed to 'break through' the panoramic window that frames its source.
