Skywatch#31 Mt. Pinatubo

The 1991 eruption of Mt. Pinatubo was felt worldwide. It contributed a lot in cooling down the earth's temperature as what the scientists said but it also erased a lot of communities from the map.

Nowadays, Mt. Pinatubo and its crater draw a lot of tourists from all over the world. The shortened hiking trail contributed to the influx of visitors and people of all ages can actually this crater.

Wow! that's a terrific capture, Marites! Love the colors and such a beautiful, dramatic -- if a little scary, place. Having experienced the eruption of Mt. St. Helen here in Washington, I'm a bit leery of volcanoes! Hope you have a great weekend!

This is beautiful...what an amazingly beautiful crater! I would be one to hike up there to take a look...fabulous capture.

That's a gorgeous shot. I love the way the crater with that beautiful sky above looks. So sad though about communities that were wiped out by the eruption in the 90s.

The green of the water is similar to our volcanic lakes here.
