The thought sends shivers down the spine, as I'm sure it must for you. We were looking at it from Whakatane just days before the tragedy, and had wondered about visiting, but time didn't allow. There but for the grace of God ...

Terrific pictures. I'm surprised visitors were still allowed at that time. Surely the geologists would have know it was about to erupt. Great that you got there to record this super set of images.
