ETNA VOLCANO PHOTOS
- Activity in November 2006 (Part 2) - lava sculptures, heat and gasses from a skylight at the 2800 m vent in Valle del Bove (2) -
Glimpses into the furnace and lava sculptures at the 2800 m vent (1 and 7 Nov.)
Filigrane lava needles and crusts of sulphate minerals neat the skylight.
|Blurry hot air escaping from the glowing skylight. At a distance of few meters, the radiation heat was almost unbearable.||Glowing stalactites at the wall of the skylight.|
|Escaping gasses and lava needles.||The skylight on 7 November; the liquid lava flowing in its tunnel is barely visible to the eye.|
|Crusts of whitish and yellow sulphate deposits mark the path of the lava tunnel.||Glow and hot gas between fractures on the lava tunnel's roof.|
