Licancabur Volcano at Night
Night view across a group of ice penitentes on a plateau in the Andes mountains, Chile. They are a snow formation found at high altitudes. They take the form of tall thin blades of hardened snow, or ice, closely spaced with the blades oriented towards the general direction of the sun. Licancabur is a highly symmetrical stratovolcano on the southernmost part of the border between Chile and Bolivia. Click on the second photo to see another nightscape view of the volcano.
