If you can't stand the heat... keep away from the volcano

To start off some of the posts about my trip to an African volcano, I wanted to share some of these recent photos from the Daily Mail:

In these stunning pictures, fearless Geoff Mackley looks like a speck of tin foil next to the 1,150C molten pit raging inside the crater of a volcano…
At a distance of just 30 metres, one slip or a sudden surge of the bubbling lava and he would be instantly turned to ash…
The 46-year-old said: 'It looks like the surface of the sun, it’s like all my wildest dreams in one moment, it’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen or done…
After a 400-metre descent, Mr Mackley can be seen staring death in the face as he looks over the edge into the fiery abyss. The video also shows a large part of the volcano lake wall collapsing into the lava and instantly turning into smoke.
There is also a video:
