Photographer's Note

Another from the archive I wish to share

A shot of sulphur carrier with about 50kg of 'golden' nugget, was about to make a right turn walking real slow along the 'sulphu trail' to weighing station some 4 km down hill. An extremely tough journey when the sun gets a bit high and harsh in an almost surreal vision with the range of tones and a bit like a strange landscape due to absence of vegetation in which few plants can survive.

From this shooting spot about 1km away from deep down the sulphur mine behind my back, the pungent toxic smell was still quite strong.


Location Crater of Ijen volcano 2300 m elevation, East Java.
and nothing flowery about this capture....


Setting: 22 mm, 1/80 sec, F16, ISO Raw 100, 0835 hrs & Polarised
