Well You just have to be far enough from it, or have a fast bus like June, when it will eventually happen again (which isn't the case of some million people living therearound in Naples and other smaller town and villages ... Pompeii and Herculaneum doom can testify it wouldn't be healthy to stay in such a case, not even on a too close yacht (considering what happened to Pliny the Old, a too curious scientist and admiral,approaching the phenomenon on his Roman flagship). LOL;):o

Two for two! Go June!!!!!!! Sort of a strange look at Vesuvius (for me). It's hard to see it as just a mountain with such a dramatic history. Sort of like Santorini. Beautiful and calm, but once so devastating.

I really like the colors and the way you varied the parts of the painting. Nice balance. My guess also is that you made the vision of it far more interesting that the photo.

More please!
