A few weeks before the eruption of October 26 2013, the south-east crater of Etna had already manifested phenomena of explosive activity.
On the evening of October 25, I made an arrangement with my cousin for camping on the volcano and making several photographs.
Later that day we started to walk down the path that would have taken us to the Valle del Bove. Once there, we put up the tent and spent the night taking several photographs.
During the first hours of the night we started to hear some roars coming from the crater, so we looked out of the tent and saw that it had started to erupt, resuming its explosive activity which had stopped a few weeks before.
It was a great sensation to see a spectacle of nature like that and be one of the firsts to see it so closely. So we caught the opportunity to film and photograph in order to keep it as a memory, not just a mental one, but also visual one.

My, are you ever brave! Mount Etna looks so close that I thought it was an arts construct, and awarded Creartivity> Such an excellent and a rare sort of capture- camping so close you could be suddenly forced to run!
