No I'm half way down the north island,the volcano is just off shore but well in view and easy travel...I did post and delete so e posts cause I didn't know at the time of all causality involved,,made me feel bit insensitive..I will how ever add this picture cause it says it tourists and locals have been going here for years to visit,bit like jumping off a bridge, I'm sort of into earthquakes and volcanoes since a kid and the crater lake on this thing is stronger than battery acid.white island itself is 70% under water and peaks out the surface of water,,latest is recovery mission on hold because its smoking up again.Yes that's very sad but people traveling around take such risky destinations much to easy. As I heard there had been some warnings before the eruption. Really not very wise to go there at that time.
Did you make some shots of that volcano if you live close to it? But probably all UAV flights were forbidden while rescue activities were going on.
