Last sunrays illuminate a cloud behind the edge of the mountain slope. Steam from Bocca Nuova at sunset. After sunset - SEC in fog and with the glowing lava field behind.

Monti Silvestri on the way down. The weather further up is not quite as good...

Making our way along the E flank of the SE cone, we finally reach the vent at the NNE wall ("The Spanish cone"), which is actually an impressive skylight. A large river of lava is flowing beneath our feet.
