WI_re132.jpg

View across the caldera Enclos Fouqué towards south. The summit cone of Piton de la Fournaise (2632 m) with the Cratère Dolomieu (left side) and the rim of the Cratère Bory (right side) prominently appears in the left central part of the image. Approx. 24 hours after its onset, the initial fissure eruption now concentrates to a more compact area.
