Mt. Etna - 2001 Lava at Night

 These night images of molten lava from Mt. Etna during the eruption of 2001 were taken from a turn-out half way up the volcano near Monte Vetore. The red glow was beautiful and we were close enough to feel the radiant heat from mother nature's pyrotechnic show.  

     It was an awe inspiring moment as I contemplated the raw power of the earth and thought about how something so beautiful could also be devastating to life and property.
