As we were leaving for work this morning and I looked up at Etna, I turned around and ran back into the house to grab my camera. This is the first time I have ever seen a flow in that much daylight. I didn't have time to get out my tripod and set it up, so the picture is a little blurry with the slow shutter speed. At least it will give you an idea of what I saw. Have a beautiful day !!!!
