Great shot. But it just made me wonder - is it smoke/an eruption, or is it a cumulus cloud (I.e. water droplets) created by rising convection currents set off by the heat continually created by the volcano even when not erupting, in the same way that cooling towers can set set off cumulus clouds?

Simply one of the best pics I have seen on UKC
