Volcano Crater Cloud Caps

Volcano Crater Cloud Caps by Rudy Giron

Here we can appreciate the volcanoes Fuego and Acatenango at sunsise. Sixty seconds before, both volcanoes had a cloud crater cap and in the time I grabbed the camera Fuego had its cloud cap removed and started puffing fumaroles.

Does it anyone know why volcanoes get cloud caps shaped exactly as the shape of their crater tops?
