Photographer's Note

Another crater .. Yes I like volcanoes very much !!

The weather was a little bit bad that day , but finally It strenghtens the strange atmosphere of this place..

Poás volcano is a powerful symbol of the geothermal forces that formed Costa Rica.
When the mist and clouds part you see the sulfuric, bubbling, green rain fed lake at the bottom, surrounded by smoke and steam rising from fumaroles. The crater is 1,050 feet (320 meters) deep. At almost a mile (1.6 km) across it's also the largest active crater in the world.
