Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia - October 7th, 2009

Visible at the start of the Central Valley above the Vostochny (or Eastern Range) mountains running down the Kamchatka Peninsula in this orthorectified image is the Bolshaya Ipelka shield volcano.

It is the largest volcanic structure of southern Kamchatka, despite the fact that it has been heavily eroded by glaciers. Today, it has a height of 1154 meters (3785 feet). The inner walls are steep, as one can observe from the deep grooves here, and the outer slopes are rocky.
