Spent the last two weeks in 33 weather, with humidity levels approaching 90%. Mind you, not on top of the volcano. This one is one of the active volcanoes in Costa Rica, though it has been 50+ years for it to rumble. Nowadays it is more a burp than anything else, but it does release a lot of steam and mud when it has a hiccup. The lava thing is apparently over, so they say. We were extremely lucky: the percentage for viewing the crater is less than 30%, since it is usually hidden by clouds and fog. That we did not even have many clouds in the sky and found the location in such a great state is a chance of less than 1%. Go figure, I am FINALLY one of the 1%ers .... as with all my panos, click on it to view the full size.

Nice colors, sharpness, I really like the capture.
The only thing I would change if it was my capture, I'd remove the left side up to the middle grass meets the grey ground (near the little mountain) and the bottom dark areas
