The Tidore volcanic complex rises to the south across a narrow strait from Ternate Island in the foreground.  The small conical island is Maitara; in the background, its summit hidden in the clouds over southern Tidore Island, is symmetrical Kiematabu peak, the highest mountain in the northern Maluku Islands.  Sabale 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 Laguna maar on the southern flank of Gamalama volcano. Photo by Jack Lockwood, 1980 (U.S. Geological Survey).
