The Poás Volcano is in central Costa Rica. There are two crater lakes near its summit. Poás has erupted 39 times since 1828. The volcano is located within the Poas Volcano National Park.(wikipedia)
10.2° N 84.2° W

The beauty of this place is unbelievable, I was very lucky that day, it was a sunny day, without clouds that usually cover the volcano. The idea was to have a complete view of the volcano and the acid lake because this is an active volcano.

hi jessica,
superb picture.great details and wonderfully captured.

Hello Jessica!
Volcanos are these places which I always wanted to see! In Poland there is no active volcano (some were but many years BC ;>), so every picture showing this geaological phenomena is more than nice to watch :)
8,884 feet is a nice level I think :) Weather conditions are rather hard and life is not very diverse I believe :)
The beauty of this place is showed by you in very professional way, I really feel the climat of this place. Nice contast and sharpness too.
Best withes from Poland,

Hola Jess.
es espectacular,
magnífica foto,
yo vivo cerca de un volcán :(
felicidades por este hermoso trabajo, saludos

Hello Jessica,
spectacular piece of nature, well presented here. Very impressing and beautiful look into that crater in that well exposed, well detailed, well composed image. The mirroring of the sky in the crater see behind the vapors looks most beautiful and surprising, like looking through a window in the rocks into the bright blue clouded sky.
Thank you! With best regards,

Hi Jessica!

What a spectacular view of this vulcano. Excellent sharpness and clarity.
The lake's color is just wonderful. Thx for sharing.

Greetings ... Ileana

Hi Jessica!

This indeed is a beauty! It looks like the eye of an extraterrestral monster. The contrast and the colors are amazing, the whole well put on stage.

Well seen, well done!

Kind regards


An amazing picture, looks like something out of sci-fi movie, well done

Hi Jessica
I have looked at many photos and written comments, but I have never ever used the word WOW before.

This is an absolutely stunning image. I have only been on one active volcano Mount Vesuvius.
