Über dieses Bild:

Ol doinyo Lengai, The Maasai's Mountain of God, is the only active volcano in the Gregory Rift - an important section of the eastern branch of Africa's Great Rift Valley. It still discharges rare carbonatite lavas, which turn white on exposure to air.The last major eruption took place in 1966 although small-scale eruptions within the summit have occurred regularly since 1983, as evidenced by this aerial photograph of the 9,400-foot-high volcano taken in 2000. The extinct Kerimasi volcano can be seen in the background.
