Photographer's Note

In my younger years I was much fitter and went places I probably shouldn't have. Here is one example from when I lived in Papua New Guinea. On a visit to Rabaul we went out in a canoe to the very active Matupit volcano.
Margaret, my wife, stayed safely down beside the water where the sand was extremely hot. A group of us climbed to the rim of the crater and whilst some stayed on the rim (you can see then looking down at the top left) a few hardy soles scrambled down into the crater where yellow sulfurous fumes seeped from the sides.
A great experience but a few years later there was a major eruption that destroyed the island and most of the beautiful old tropical town of Rabaul.
Scanned from a slide.
OK in the large view.
