“ The effect is stunning, immersion is total. ”

“ Above me, a beautiful starry sky and all around fragments of lava are perilously close. Suddenly, explosions from the erupting cone eject blocks that are thrown into the air. I try to protect myself with by arm from impacts and ricochets. ”

“ Now the lava is in front of me, at a few meters, that I feel able to touch it with the foot tip and hand. What I'm trying to do elsewhere. At this distance, I can observe the different details of these flows. That's wonderful. ”
