Russia – February 28th, 2013

Kamchatka Peninsula, in the Russian Far East, is blanketed in snow. Visible through the white covering are the peaks of volcanoes such as the Bolshya Ipelka (above image center, near west coast), a large volcanic caldera surrounded by a ring-shaped ridge with steep inner walls and rocky outer slopes. It is made up of the remains of a great volcano that has been eroded and destroyed.
