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.

Marvelous shot! The silhouettes certainly have an impact on the shot; must be quite hot for them.

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.
