Je ne sais pas ce que ça représente, mais j'aime beaucoup ce jeu de couleurs ocres.

Thanks for the visit Sylviane. The title "calde gocce" means "hot drops". It represents a lava channel; in the lower part you can see the lava flow, in the upper part the lava is freezing and is forming small stalactites (the hot drops). I hope now it's clearer :) Greetings, Roberto.

P.S.: I well understand French, but I'm not able to write it, I'm sorry.

Merci Roberto pour cette réponse que je comprends parfaitement. Pour les extra-terrestres du glacier de l'Allalin, je vous ai répondu sous la photo! Merci de votre visite et amitiés de Suisse!

Yes, this is one of my favorite photos! I remember the air coming out from this hole was really really hot. This is one of my closest approach to a lava flow :)

Greetings, Roberto
