"Lovely photograph" wins National Geographic 2010 photo contest

Aaron Lim Boon Teck was the grand prize winner of National Geographic’s 2010 photo contest with this spectacular photo. He explains:

“Trekkers [who] were able to make it up to the crater rim on time [were] able to camp overnight to witness the eruption [the] whole night long,” Boon Teck, of Singapore, wrote with his submission to the 2010 National Geographic Photography Contest. “I wanted to share with everyone this experience of seeing many elements going on at a particular point in time.”
