Love the silhouette and such powerful colors and contrast. The bit of lava splash cut off on the right side is slightly distracting though since it isn’t the subject of the photo.
This is spectacular; would I like to have been there? No… well actually yes, scary but brilliant.

Looks hot. Feels hot. The to people silhouette just adds context and value to the picture.
Congrats. Thanks for sharing.
Now THAT’S new! After all these shots of rivers with plastic water this one is like a breez of fresh air. Great shot! Thanks!

Marvelous shot! The silhouettes certainly have an impact on the shot; must be quite hot for them.
Wow!!! Great deep colour, the silhouettes add extra depth and value, and context… Great shot!
The colors in this shot are fantastic!
Everyone has already said it : Wonderful shot. The silhouettes show depth and great imagination.
You have caught the immense power of Mother Nature,
utterly awe inspiring, with a whiff of danger capped with sheer beauty.
Great picture! Love the red and the black…It looks like you were right at the edge of the volcano. How far were you?
