Having a long-term interest in volcanoes, it was only a matter of time before one showed up in My gallery. Although some volcanoes have their inactive presence hidden among rainforests in some of My previous works, This is the first in My gallery where the erupting volcano itself is the main subject. The lava would be the first thing people notice but most time was spent on surrounding rocks and mountains. I was trying a new way of doing them which took more time but made them more realistic than any of My previous pictures involving rocky mountains.
I'd say it took about 16 hours in total. Made using photoshop CS2. Enjoy !
