Fumarole on snow-capped Pico.

Mount Pico - the highest peak of Portugal - is a stratovolcano located on Pico Island (Azores). It last erupted in 1718. The fumarole is rarely visible on Mount Pico, with higher chances of observing it in winter and early spring, when air temperatures on the summit are below zero and the peak is snow-capped. I was lucky to capture it in this occasion just after sunrise.
