Volcano Tungurahua sometimes erupts spectacularly.
molten rock so hot it glows visibly pours down the sides of the 5,000-meter high
Tungurahua, while a cloud of
dark ash is seen being ejected toward the left.
Wispy white clouds flow around the
lava-lit peak, while a star-lit sky shines in the distance.
The above image was
captured in 2006 as ash fell around the adventurous photographer.
Tungurahua has become
active roughly every 90 years since for the last 1,300 years.
