Fireworks at Stromboli volcano, Italy. The photo was taken in spring 2009 and shows an explosion from Stromboli's NE crater in the evening twilight. In the first half of 2009 in particular, this crater was in spectacular, vigorous activity. It had quickly built a tall cone, changing and dominating the crater terrace of Stromboli, and although more changes have happened, it is still one of the main features of the crater today. 
We selected this photo as the "Photo of the Month" Dec 2011 and congratulate Christian with a 500 EUR travel voucher! (Photo: muepla)

Aerial view of Vulcano Island. The left older part of the island is an older caldera - the remnant of a dissected stratovolcano, the right part is a younger caldera where the present-day harbour and tourist village of Vulcano is located next to the active cone (light brown) La Fossa. A narrow land bridge connects the island with the peninsula formed by the little cone Vulcanello (an island, that appeared in Roman times), mostly out of the right frame in this picture.

Erta Ale volcano's lava lake back in Nov 2009.  
The red glow of the lava illuminates the crater walls under the blue sky of dusk. A small group of observers is on the left crater rim. 
During the past 7 years, the lava lake has gradually risen. As of now (Dec 2016), the lava lake has completely filled the pit crater and constructed a new shield by ongoing overflows.  (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)
