Standing on an active volcano

Emili, one of the participants in the 2013 Kamchatka photo tour sent me a photo of Tolbachik volcano. He took this photo while heading back to camp after an evening photo session. They had left me behind on the volcano. I wrote about the experience in an earlier post. While looking closely at the photo I noticed a tiny figure on the edge of the crater and realised it was me.

Zoomed into the cropped section shows me standing on the edge of the crater.

Here is a zoomed in version of the photo showing me standing at the edge of the crater taking photos of the lava lake. The photograph below is the shot I was taking from that position.
