A volcanic journey only hours from my home in Indonesia. The fading sunlight provided only a moment to capture these rays before they gave up the struggle to night.


Near Bandung, Indonesia - on the other side of the volcano: Tankuban Perahu.


With the worlds' eyes focusing on Mount Merapi, I'd like to make note that although Indonesia has the world's highest density of volcanoes, most are actually quite safe and extraordinarily beautiful. I've had the opportunity to climb two in the past two weeks and will do my best to bring forth the stunning views afforded by hiking these giants.


By the way - this is only very minorly Photoshopped! ;)
