Hazy Bay of Naples from Mt. Vesuvius

This image captures the bay of Naples from the top of Mt. Vesuvius, one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world. Vesuvius is considered dangerous due to the large population surrounding the volcano. The haze over the bay is produced from the sands that blows over from the Sahara Desert.
