The small conical island of Maitara is between Ternate and Tidore in northern Maluku off the W coast of Halmahera. In the background, its summit hidden in the clouds over southern Tidore Island, is symmetrical Kie Matabu volcano.  Telaga volcano, a truncated caldera at the NE end of Tidore Island, is obscured behind the leaves at the upper left.  The lake-filled crater in the foreground is Ngade maar on the southern flank of Gamalama volcano. Photo by Jack Lockwood, 1980 (U.S. Geological Survey).
