A panoramic view from the summit of Irazú volcano shows the E-W-trending summit crater complex.  The main crater is partially filled by a lake in the center of the photo, the floor of the broad flat-bottomed Playa Hermosa crater at the right is covered by deposits of historical eruptions, and the Diego de la Haya crater lies in the right background.
