The awakening of Mt. Etna volcano. This morning our Mt. Etna decided to celebrate the beginning of the new year with the 1st paroxysm of 2012. This shot was taken just after sunrise from the road MareNeve close to Fornazzo, Catania, Sicily
The red color is due to the reflections os the sunrise
The phenomenon ended a few hours later. Now the ashes are falling down on the small villages around the volcano, but no danger.
