Gunung Merapi (Firing Mountain) is located not far from Yogyakarta in Central Java, Indonesia and is said to be the most active volcano in Indonesia (most recently erupting on 26 & 29 October 2010), and one of the most active volcanoes in the world.
Here I was happily shooting away thinking the peak of the mountain was at a similar height to the hills in the foreground. It wasn’t until after I’d taken a few shots that I realised the peak was right up there – almost out of the frame of most of my shots so far! (us Aussies aren’t used to seeing real mountains!). Unfortunately, I’ve therefore had to crop this image a little to improve the composition.
We were hoping that the mist/cloud would clear, but it only got thicker…
