The remaining highlight of this trip was the spectacular experience we had at the Arenal Volcano. While there were the usual clouds and mist, there were plenty of times when we had good views of the volcano, and there was exceptional activity to capture. This near-dusk shot shows how the pyroclastic activity is beginning to become visible, as glowing red rocks and boulders, which create giant puffs of smoke and ash as they go careening down the side of the volcano.
