Taken, hand held, from our hotel balcony in Sorrento last week.
Mount Vesuvius is 14 miles, as the crow flies, from where I was standing.
The sun was at the correct angle to light up the the inside of the caldera, which I was pleased about!
I've done quite a bit of work on the image in Lightroom and PS and I'm reasonably pleased with the outcome.
We walked around the edge of the caldera nearest to the camera - that was quite an experience!
You could see one or two fumaroles inside the caldera - just to remind you that there's still a bit of life smoldering away!!!
I'll post some images I took at the top over the next few days.
Many appreciative thanks for all views, votes and comments on my 'Capri Sunset' upload!
Have a great day.
