Wordless Wednesday – Under the Volcano

Etna's lower slopes

Etna’s lower slopes



  1. Good to see you back. And with Etna, the slumbering giant.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. The contrast of textures is striking: smooth clear blue sky, puffy smoke, rough rocks coated by cold slick sheets of snow/ice, the lumpy trees and dry brush. Great lines, too

  3. Beautiful lines – that old Mother Nature – what a gal.

  4. Oh wow, no snow when I was there, what month was this? It’s a fab image!

  5. great image. A tad scary if you live there!!

  6. Wow, wonderful shot ….. I wish that my images of Mt Fuji had that blue sky. I love the layers of different textures in the nature.

  7. Great place to explore!

  8. This is exactly like Ravensburger motive.. I love the hill with leaf-less trees in the foreground.

  9. Suzanne

    I like the brooding quality of this photo – definitely has an under the volcano feel

  10. Beautiful! All the more so from a moving bus!

  11. Did you reach the top? This is a beautiful capture. It reminds me a lot of Vesuvius.

      Got fairly high up by 4WD coach. You can’t get right to the top.

      • OK, but when the coach stopped, how far were you allowed to go. How close did you come?

      • Sue

        Oh, it was flip pin’ cold, very windy, and my balance is shot to bits so I went no further…. Some people were walking through the snow, but I have no idea how far they got

  12. I was directed back here by Viveka’s enthusiasm, Sue 🙂 I think I glimpsed this on my phone as I browsed in a quiet moment in Poland, but it’s not the same. Quite beautiful! 🙂
