Volcanic crater lake. Fish-eye lens view of a crater lake. Crater lakes form when a volcano creates a large crater in an eruption, which then becomes filled with water. Such lakes are often hot and acidic. The soil and waters around a volcano are rich in minerals and can support a wide variety of plant life. Photographed on Easter Island (Rapa Nui), a volcanic island in the South Pacific Ocean.
