Again sorry for the quality, but equipment and handling took a toll on the picures ;-).

After eruptions ended, a crater lake formed in the 1991 caldera, with the 1992 lava dome forming an island. At first, the lake was small, hot and highly acidic, with a minimum pH of 2 and a temperature of about 40°C. Abundant rainfall cooled and diluted the lake, lowering the temperature to 26°C and raising the pH to 5.5 by 2003.

The lake increased in depth by about 1 metre per month on average, until September 2001, when fears that the walls of the crater might be unstable prompted the Philippine government to order a controlled draining of the lake. 9,000 people were once again evacuated from surrounding areas in case a large flood was accidentally triggered. Workers cut a 5 m notch in the crater rim, and successfully drained about a quarter of the lake's volume.

this picture was taken before 2001.

No points please!

A little noisy but interesting POV for sure. TFS.

Hallo Sky,
es sind aus wie ein Landschaftsgemälde, daher hat das Foto ein schöne Ausstrahlung. Mir gefällt es und ich hätte dir auch Punkte gegeben.
Viele Grüße

Hi Sky. Very fine composition. What it lacks in sharpness it more than makes up in interesting notes. TFS. Murray.

Hello Sky,
You have captured interesting details that justify the somewhat inferior quality!
The Mt Pinatubo tells the story about living on a volcano, with the consequences it has for man and beast...
Must have been great visiting this place in a helicopter!
