Oh no! Not that #$%^&*! volcano again! Sorry, folks …

… but the night before last, it was roaring away for hours in the early hours. I live 20 km away in the bush and can't see the volcano in question, Tavurvur, next to Rabaul town, so yesterday morning I rang my mate who has a seaside guesthouse across the harbor from it and he said no doubt it had behaved as I said but he had slept the sleep of the just and hadn't heard a thing.

Anyway, there was lots of smoke yesterday but it was also overcast and rainy. Then today dawned bright and hot (surprise -- we are 4.15 degrees south of the equator!). I bethought me to jump on the early bus to have a look at how the volcano was behaving but got tangled up with actually doing something so didn't make one of my favorite vantage points in Kokopo town until after midday.

And what a lovely day! The rain had cleared the air and we had the kind of visibility we always hope for and lots of saturated color, so I ignored the pundits (myself included) who insist that the middle of the day is no time to remove the lens cap, and took a few shots.

Nice and sharp with the kit 14-42 II R lens.

This is the best one, I think. OOC except for a small crop top and right and just a tweak of extra contrast.

Cheers, geoff
