19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Eruption of Mount Etna at sunset

One of the most beautiful sunsets a person can ever dream of seeing. The power that mount etna releases creates a dualism between the wonder of a natural phenomenon with a unique visual expression and the danger that can derive from these paroxysmal events. To take this photograph I only had a few minutes given the very limited duration of the event.
