It's about time we looked at something great. This is Mt. Sangeang Api - Lesser Sunda Islands and it threw enough of a fit to ground flights out of Australia which made a lot of whingeing people hang about in airports. Don't any of them watch those aircraft doco's that show what happens when volcanic ash is sucked into jet engines? I'm addicted to Air Crash Investigations, it's like Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for me. Never get on a plane, it will go down, this message will show behind my eyes every time I see some place I might like to travel to.
But the great thing about these photographs taken just as it went right off its rocker is in the middle of the right side ( your right side looking at the screen). There are two beautifully formed Lenticular clouds. You know the ones that form over mountain tops and look like caps or flying saucers. The second photo (your left side) shows the explosive hot gas going right through the centre of those Lenticular clouds.
It's one of those 'on the spot' shots that happen once and never again.
