An aerial shot of Mount Mayon -- one of the Philippines' most active volcano

Mount Mayon is named after the colloquial word for "beautiful lady". It's known for it's seemingly perfectly cone shape. It can also be described as a femme fatale -- its beauty belies its dangerous nature as it is one of the most active volcanoes in the Philippines. This photo was taken as the volcano is predicted to have another major eruption.
