Zowie, that's some photo! You're right. It should be obvious why you can't climb that one...
What sort of time exposure have you got on that? Beautiful ballistic traces, must get down there one day.
I actually purchased this photo from the Department of Conservation, and asked if I could use it here. I know it was a time lapse, but I don't know the details.
I actually saw that same sight when i was there, got a lucky few hours of no clouds at night. I was told some really smart people actually try to climb it every year.
I have been there and I love it, I couldn't see this sight because I went with my kids and they keep me busy.
I wish I could say that I took the photo, but I didn't take that one. I purchased it from the DOC and received permission to post it.
of words!!!! he he he
that's huge, I dream to have at least one occasion in my life to see with my own eyes such incredible thing like volcano eruption.
Be careful what you wish for (:
Check out this album:
Anyway, I've seen four volcanic eruptions, but the one above in the album was only one unplanned. The others (Kilauea, Arenal and Ruapehu) were from a safe distance.
