Taal Volcano from the Air

While flying to Zamboanga City from Manila last October I chanced upon this sight from my window seat: Taal Volcano, showing its caldera and Vulcan Point, an island within the main crater lake. The volcano itself sits on Volcano Island, which in turn is located in Taal Lake, in Luzon island.

Taal, located just 50 kilometers from Manila, is one of the Philippines' most active volcanoes, having erupted 33 times since 1572. The last eruption was in 1977.
