Featured Photo by Marco Calandra

Today’s featured photo is chosen from ViewBug (The World’s Best Photo Contests) community.

This picture was taken in the Valle del Bove in Sicily, Italy. On October 26th, 2013, the volcano Etna began to erupt. I spent the whole night there with my cousin to film and photograph the eruption, to have a memory, not only a mental memory, but also a visual one. I used a Nikon D7000 with a Nikon Af-s DX 18-105 f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR. The settings were Focal Length: 21mm with shutter speed at 20 secs and aperture f/4 with ISO: 1000. I know, I could have photographed it at f/16 to get more details in the picture, but the lava was too hot and in that case the tent and the lava would have resulted over exposed. F/4 was a great setting to use because I avoided any movement of the stars to show :) It was pure adventure that inspired me to take this shot. This photo is a reminder of our adventure that night.
