The summit crater complex of 3340-m-high Turrialba volcano appears in the shadow of this aerial view from the south.  Three overlapping craters, each of which contains sub-craters, occur within the 2 x 4 km summit depression.  A cloud bank at the upper right covers the breached NE end of the summit crater complex.
