Lava and cinder everywhere
These three shots show some of the variety in the lava fields around the base of Broken Top cinder cone at Craters of the Moon National Monument. The first image shows a tilted layer of lava with a coating of cinder. The last image shows some Pahoehoe lava flows. The area is littered with debris from nearby spatter cones. All the images were taken with a 24mm lens on my 20D, the first two with exposures of 1/2000 seconds at f/5 and the last 1/1250 seconds at f/5, all at ISO 400.
