Fantastic shot! Greetings, Tanja

Thankyou mokosha. The ash eruptions were occurring about every 12 secs. The wind was blowing gently away from me, so you can see three separate ash clouds, one behind the other in this photo.

It is hard to believe, but years before I actually walked in the bottom of this crater.

Warm regards from Brisbane, Australia.

Hello Jarl,

At first this gallery was related to the work I was doing, hence there are many portraits of students from different countries, as well as images like this from my travels to work with my former students. I think this factor gives my gallery some distinctive photos.

I am pleased that you like this image of Tavurvur in eruption. It's a dusty place there when Tavurvur is throwing ash around like this.

Thank you Helmar. I have stood here looking across this harbour at night and felt the earth shaking beneath my feet, and stared up into the night sky watching fireworks as a big hot ash cloud bursts into the sky and remarkable static electricity sends the night sky crazy and fearsome!

New Year greetings from Brisbane,

Yes, gerefa. It was a great opportunity to photograph this volcano. Years before we had descended into the crater and hiked out again, but since then its this eruption and its devastation made the volcano into a 'monster'.
