Formes surprenantes, qui tranchent avec la plateur du lac!

Le Phantom Ship est le vestige d'une cheminée volcanique vieille de 400 000 ans qui a résisté à la formidable explosion du Mont Mazama (7 700 ans) qui recouvrait les vestiges de ce paléovolcan. L'explosion du Mont Mazama a creusé une caldeira circulaire de 10 kilomètres de diamètre et de 1000 mètres de profondeur qui s'est rempli d'eaux de fonte des neiges au point de former un lac de 600 mètres de profondeur qui ne laisse dépasser cette formation géologique que de la hauteur d'un immeuble de 17 étages... Vu depuis le rebord de la caldeira, qui surplombe la surface du lac de plus de 400 mètres à cet endroit, ce "vaisseau fantôme" ressemble pourtant à un jouet, mais le bateau de croisière qui passe à proximité permet de donner l'échelle.

Something from The Lord of the Rings!

I agree, the whole place is stunning and some volcanic features seems somewhat supernatural.

Thank-you Malcom. This is one of the great natural place of America I love. You have to sit atop the cliffs and have a deep breath. This place has something like a supernatural feeling.

I love this shot! Y* and also Y* for your gallery, Jean-Marc. You have a lot of outstanding pictures. I don't have time to see them all now, but I'll come back.
Greetings from Seattle, Bryan

Amazing volcanic rock formation.

Thank you very much for your visit and comment Drosoula Stella and Andrey Bogdanov.
As you can see, the ship indicate the size of the rock, approximately a 7-story high building. But the lake is so far below the top of the cliff it seems a mere toy seen from above.

JMZ2007, Thanks for including this in the group National Parks.
This island is so distinctive that all I did was see the thumbnail and I knew it was Phantom Ship at Crater Lake National Park. You have made an excellent photo of it.

Thank you for your comment, Austin, and congratulations for your initiative (creating the National Park Group and moderating it). I added you to the list of my favourite photographers.
