14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
On top of Old Smokey

After taking a train, a bus, and hiking for some time I reached the top of Mount Vesuvius. Known for it's destruction of Pompeii, and Herculaneum, the volcano now stands quietly smoking, peacefully overlooking the Bay of Naples. Tranquil with a dangerous undertone.
