Subjects : This is the weirdest place I've ever seen and spectacular ... the fiery crater of Darvaza, in Turkmenistan! In the 70s, during some drilling for natural gas extraction, there was an explosion that created a crater 70 meters wide and 30 deep. Not being able to stem the huge gas leak, it was decided to set him on fire, believing that it would be sold out within a few days. It's been over 40 years and still Darvaza of the flame continues to burn ... this place was sopprannominato 'The Gates of Hell' for the flames that burn for ever, the heat that is given off and the smell of gas is truly a vision of unimaginable ...

Recommended equipment : Essential to a wide angle and can be useful even a standard zoom lens and a fisheye. I would highly recommend a tripod.

Best months : All year round, the crater is always active.

How to get there : Currently (2013) the only way to get in Turkmenistan is to rely on a local agency that might bring the 'Letter of Invitation', necessary for entering the country. Darvaza is about 250 km from the nearest town and you need a jeep to reach the place. On some maps the place is also called 'Derweze'.

Visits : It 'a very' wild ', there were no fences nor controls, each one more visit the crater when he wants to.

Notes : E 'need to use extreme caution when approaching the edge of the crater, because if you fall is certain death. In addition, often arrive gusts of burning gas and in a moment it becomes impossible to breathe because the air is completely saturated with gas and more than 100 degrees. I tried to do the shots from a 'burst' and the other, tentendomi ready to run away when it came to burning gas.
