As tourists hike around White Island, NZ, there are lots of openings, also known as fumaroles, which have steam and sulfurous gas being emitted out of the volcano landscape. These openings appear as small volcanoes which have recently erupted and when exploring at a close range, gas masks must be worn.
Fumarole emitting sulfurous gas and steam on White Island, an active volcano, Bay of Plenty, East Coast, North Island of New Zealand. The fumarole opening is surrounded by sulphur and various minerals.
I photographed this photo with the digital SLR camera model Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II, aperture of f/9.0, exposure time of 1/200 sec. on ISO 100, as always I used a original Canon Lens, the focus lenght for this picture was 30mm.
