Arenal Volcano

Arenal Volcano became a world sensation during the time it stayed spitting out lava and having constant activity. The volcano is now not much active, but the whole region benefited from a surge in tourism, generating much needed income for the families living there. Among the most visited places in San Carlos is now La Fortuna Waterfall, which is pretty tall and features a pond where many people take a refreshing bath. Lake Arenal and the Volcano are also popular places, particularly for landscape photographers, since the volcano has the classic conic shape, and its many faces show very different characteristics to them.

Lighting conditions can be very changing throughout a landscape photography session, leading to very different outcomes of the same scene.
