Caption: Erta Ale volcano lava lake. The Erta Ale basaltic shield volcano is located in the Danakil depression, Ethiopia. It has an active lava lake around 100 metres in diameter. This lava lake is part of the summit caldera. The constant motion of the lava lake's surface resembles plate tectonics on a smaller scale.
