Image 14/61: Steam Clouds on Vulcano

Clouds of steam and hydrosulfide are evaporating on Vulcano's crater rim. It smells like foul eggs. This type of volcano is totally different than Stromboli on the neighbouring island. Stromboli always spits a bit lava and is rather harmles. Vulcano sleeps for centuries, increases the pressure until it explodes in a huge detonation. The last one was in 1888-1890. — Minolta SRT-101, 2/50mm, Kodak Gold 400, Vulcano, Eolian Islands, October 1996
