Mount Etna erupted on the evening of 23 February 2013. I noticed this at around 18:10 when dusk was setting in. I could see lava from a distance so I raced back to my camper van to get the camera. I am limited by a lack of internet use as to what I can post but this is the most impressive footage. We can see the volcano throwing up fire perhaps as high as 500 metres whilst life goes on as normal in the town of Catania below whilst we can see the reflection of the volcano in the Mediterranean below. I wish I had a more powerful camera but even so, I thnk that this conveys the power of the volcano.
This film was shot from Brucoli, around 50km south of Etna.
I will post an HD film when I get access to broadband internet - I am currently uploading from a dongle.
Unfortunately due to the very poor performance of the computer I bought last month, a heap of junk, an Asus N56VZ, posting of this film was delayed. Be warned and don't buy Asus!
My big interest in life is travel and history but I have also placed films on other subjects.

I am very fortunate that I can spend a large part of my life travelling, thanks to the business I chose to run which allows me to do this. There are a number of films here on the packaging industry. This is because I am the publisher of Central and Eastern European Packaging -- http://www.ceepackaging.com - the international platform for the packaging industry in this region focusing on the latest innovations, trends, design, branding, legislation and environmental issues with in-depth profiles of major industry achievers.
Most people may think packaging pretty boring but it possibly effects your life more than you really imagine!
Central and Eastern European Packaging examines the packaging industry throughout this region, but in particular in the largest regional economies which are Russia, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Ukraine and Austria. That is not to say that the other countries are forgotten, they are not, but obviously there is less going on. However the fact that there are so many travel related films here is not from holidays but from business trips attending trade fairs around the region. Every packaging trade fair is a new excuse to make another film!
