Craters and volcanic lava on Mount Etna
Picture taken from Observatory “Pizzi Deneri”, of the INGV-National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, located at 2815 m a.s.l. on Mount Etna, Sicily. The photo shows several craters on the north-eastern side of the volcano, with its lava castings from different eruptions occurred in several past years. We can see in the foreground the darkest lava casting that seems to represent the shadow of a human figure extending from right to left, and in the background the Natural Reserve “Bosco di Malabotta”.
