Image Caption: Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
Most of the largest island in the Galapagos group, Isla Isabela, stretches across the middle of the view. The circular feature on this island at the bottom of the view is Volcano Wolf (1707 m in altitude). Volcano Darwin (1280 m) is the next volcano above and to the left, partly ringed with cloud. The single island top right is Isla Fernandina, the top of another volcano (1547 m). Recent lava flows appear as darker surfaces and the older surfaces appear green, as a result of unusual rains and vegetation greening in this normally arid part of the world. The Equator passes exactly through Volcano Wolf, roughly left to right (north is towards the bottom of the view).
