Poás was near the epicenter of a 6.1-magnitude earthquake in January 2009 that killed at least forty people and affected Fraijanes, Vara Blanca, Cinchona (the most affected area), the capital San José, and the Central Valley region of Costa Rica.
There was also eruptive activity in 2009 involving minor phreatic eruptions and landslides within the northern active crater. Poás eruptions often include geyser-like ejections of crater-lake water.

A very impressive crater! The composition is good with the leaves on the foreground.

this is amazing picture! My congratulations for climbing so high to achieve this POV and well done for capturing the power of this volcano so well. It makes me shiver looking just at this picture and it feel like looking into the mouth of the massive monster.
The steam floating above adds very much to this image. Everything neatly framed with the leaves at the bottom.
Thanks for sharing! Enjoy your day!
