Volcano photos

More great photography from someone else. Previously, we have deduced that to take great landscape photos, you need to be in Iceland. Now we learn that to take great volcano photos, you need to be in Guatemala, more specifically 3600m up the side of Volcano Acatenango, overlooking Volcano Fuego, and you need to have your:

trusty (and well-loved) gaffer-taped Nikon Df hooked up to a 21mm Zeiss 2.8 and Gitzo 1542T tripod.

and also:

a Nikon 35mm 1.4, and an old Nikkor 55mm 1.2 in case [you] need something tighter.
