Meteorological clouds drape the sparsely vegetated summit of Kanlaon, the most active volcano of the central Philippines and the highest point of Negros Island. It contains different cones and craters, many of which are filled by lakes. Historical eruptions, recorded since 1866, have typically consisted of small-to-moderate phreatic explosions that produce minor ashfall near the volcano. Photo courtesy of PHIVOLCS.
