Ol Doinyo Lengai

We reach Stephane ontop of hornito T57B to admire the spectacular steaming hornito T56B: As a result of the air's humidity the fresh black ash gradually changes to white. This leads to the elegant radial striae on the perfectly conical flanks. On its left, the deeply black hornito T58B has just ended a paroxysmal eruption. The whole Lengai North Crater is visible in this panorama. From left to right: East rim overflow just below Kitumbeine volcano on the horizon; pyramidal hornitos T45, T37B and T37 and sharp hornito T47 just below Lengai's summit; hornito T40 partially hidden by Stephane; crater C on the north crater rim just between Stephane and Gelai volcano on the horizon.
