Awesome shot. What are the particulars? When was it taken, what time of night, how long was the exposure, what equipment, etc?
The photo was taken 9/20/05 with my 20D and 100-400L lens at 400mm. It was a 5-min. exposure at f6.3 and ISO 800. I still kick myself for not getting up there earlier and going for about an hour-long exposure at ISO 100 to help prevent the noise, but moonlight was begining to fill the crater and I was worried that it might wash-out the glowing domes if it hit them.
That is a real cool shot!
I never knew that lava/magma could be seen at St. Helens, but then again, I never visited the area at night before.
Thanks for the comment, BaitBoy. I am not sure if the molten rock can be seen anymore since the volcanic activity has slowed-down lately. At the time, the only way I could see the glow was with either a long exposure on the camera, or a night vision scope. I once used a film camera also. It showed the glowing, but the lens was too small (wide) for any more detail than a red speck on the mountain.
I read the comments, very interesting....Great shot btw ;) Like1
