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.

Central Crater, Tongariro, Ngauruhoe. The floor of Central Crater, in the foreground, is actually a weathered ash and lava filled old drainage basin rather than a true crater. Note the poles marking the track from Red Crater - if the weather turns bad, keep the poles in sight at all times.
