I posted a similar image on the day i took it in September. It shows a Lava Rose on the way up to Teide in Tenerife. The Basaltic columns formed the shape of a flower when they cooled. I have no idea from which eruption this resulted or how old it is. It does not remind me of a rose but most definitely of a flower.
Some new webcams were pointed out:
Islandbloggen, A long list of Icelandic Webcams. ( In Icelandic)
Now THAT list will keep auroa lovers busy, some new volcanocams are there too!
Thanks for finding them! They were added to the crows nest.
It does make sense to pay those 2 new El Popo cams a visit, some plume was clearly visible the last days.
The livecam from Garibaldi Hill showing Soufrière Hills volcano on Montserrat. is not new but i managed to grab a beautiful screenshot at noon.
And the sad thing to keep an eye on, are the aftershocks after the Mag 8 ( or 7,9) earthquake in Santa Cruz, Solomon Islands. There was one Mag 7 ( or 6,9 ) just recently. http://geofon.gfz-potsdam.de/eqinfo/list.php
