Great shot !!!

I have seen the crater of Mt. St. Helen's 21 years after its eruption so I enjoy your photo. Very interesting angle. Thanks, Henryk.

Dzieki !

Please understand - was taken just
a little over (one) year after the
castastrophic eruption. I was in a
SAFE position, inside of a small plane.
A "touring plane," like the ones that
fly over the Grand Canyon. Thanks for
your kind comments and votes, Henryk!!!
