After driving around and around and around the volcano on roads that barely qualify as roads and after hopping over barbed wire fence after barbed wire fence, I finally managed to find a nice shot of the volcano. It was not easy to get that horse to cooperate with me. I had to figure out how to say, "I am not a glue-man" in Spanish.

This is the most active volcano in Costa Rica and one of the most active in the world. Later days would take me up higher into the danger zone to get some rather ill-advised shots. Those will be coming in a few days...

    Great shot man, I love Arenal! Do you have any shots of it at night? I took this one on my last trip to Fortuna.

    Very nice photo. I visited your site as well. Nice photos on the site but because of your ability to manipulate I wondered if this photo is factual or manipulated.
