I have cheated this week as I have been rather busy and have not had much time to swan about with my camera. I took this photo while on holiday a couple of years back, in the haunting excavated town of Pompeii, Italy.
The eruption of Vesuvius started early on the morning of 24 August, AD 79, taking the local population by surprise. A massive cloud of gas and volcanic rock rose high in the air, darkening the sky, showering ash and rock fragments covering Pompeii.
Excavations started back in 1748 revealing prestigious buildings, artifacts and roads.
This is my entry for Sunday Stills, the theme this week is The Open Road.
I've added some more photos of Pompeii here.

Going into Flåm at 6.00am.
We hiked up to this huge waterfall above Flåm.
The view of the village from the waterfall.
The famous Flåm Line
This massive cruise ship, Celebrity Equinox, was leaving Flåm at about 5 in the afternoon - she was on her maiden voyage.
