Image Caption: Onekaton Island, Kurile chain, in winter.

The narrow end of Onekotan Island is to the north by northeast. This is one of several volcanic islands extending south by southwest between the southern tip of Kamchatka and Japan. The exposure was stopped down to provide extremely fine detail in the totally snow-covered landscape, at the same time making the dark sea look completely black.
