Photographer's Note

Dominica's mysterious Boiling Lake. No one is certain why the lake is boiling but it is thought that the lake is a fumarole through which gases escape from molton lava below. The lake did in fact stop boiling for a while in 2004 which puzzled many people.

This was quite a tricky shot to take because the steam rises very quickly and is very thick. At times it is impossible to see the lake because you are shrouded in the steam so you have to wait for the chance to see the Lake and the surroundings.
