Taken September 26, 2008
This is the Roman city of Pompeii, Italy, and the innocent looking mountain in the background is Mount Vesuvius. But this isn’t just some pretty scenery.
Mount Vesuvius is a stratovolcano that erupted in AD 79; destroying the city and the people; hence this is a shot of the destructor and it’s aftermath. Currently it isn’t erupting, and Pompeii is now a hot tourist attraction. It is amazing how much a place can change…
