  This photo of Tungurahua (a volcano) was caputured in Ecuador in 2006.  It is 5,000 meters high so there are white clouds that flow around the peak of the volcano.  The black smoke in the picture is actually dark ash being ejected by the volcano.  Also visible in the background of the photo are stars.
