Tangkuban Perahu is an dormant volcano 30 km north of the city of Bandung, the provincial capital of West Java, Indonesia. It last erupted in 1959 It is a popular tourist attraction where tourists can hike or ride to the edge of the crater to view the hot water springs upclose, and buy eggs cooked on its hot surface. This stratovolcano is on the island of Java and last erupted in 1983. Together with Mount Burangrang and Bukit Tunggul, those are remnants of the ancient Mount Sunda after the plinian eruption caused the Caldera to collapse.
A study conducted in 2001 determined that Tangkuban Perahu has erupted at least 30 times in the previous 40,750 years. Studies of the tephra layers within 3 km of the crater revealed that twenty one were minor eruptions and the remaining nine were major eruptions. The eruptions that occurred prior to approximately 10,000 years ago were magmatic/phreatomagmatic. The eruptions that occurred after 10,000 years ago were phreatic.

This is a nice POV which I have tried a few times myself. Seen from above people become part of the surroundings in an often surprising way and sometimes form very attractive patterns. Here they create several rounded shapes among the small pools of water. The colours of their clothes blend nicely with the grey rocks.

A lovely image full of interest. The POV and the groups of people around the pools and rocks make great patterns. The colours of the clothes stand out against the grey. A fascinating image with very good exposure and level of sharpness.
