Cones and lava

This is a photo of Pu`u `O`o's crater.

Looking west across Pu`u `O`o's crater, showing current family of spatter cones. East Pond Vent is nearest two cones separated by a crater. January Vent is directly above East Pond Vent. Drainhole is sharp dark cone on right edge of fume at 1 o'clock from January Vent. South Wall complex is mostly hidden by fume at about 9:30 from Drainhole. Beehive sits alone at 2:30 from Drainhole, with Puka Nui Gap just above and left. Finally, West Gap cones form steep edifice near right edge of view.
