Batur Volcano is one of the tourist attraction on Bali Island, it is an active Volcano , however tourists allow to have a hiking trip here.
The weather on the highlands change rapidly, that day I visit to the Volcano view point is just a cloudy day, the view block by thick mist, I give some colors to the view through Photoshop, the WS showing the view in natural color. Since have no road lamp along the way to the Volcano view point on hignlands, the tour guide (actually is driver) remind us to leave the highlands before evening.

Mount Batur (Gunung Batur) is an active volcano located at the center of two concentric calderas north west of Mount Agung, Bali, Indonesia. The south east side of the larger 10×13 km caldera contains a caldera lake. The inner 7.5-kilometer-wide caldera, which was formed during emplacement of the Bali (or Ubud) ignimbrite, has been dated at about 23,670 and 28,500 years ago 
The SE wall of the inner caldera lies beneath Lake Batur; Batur cone has been constructed within the inner caldera to a height above the outer caldera rim. The Batur stratovolcano has produced vents over much of the inner caldera, but a NE-SW fissure system has localized the Batur I, II, and III craters along the summit ridge. Historical eruptions have been characterized by mild-to-moderate explosive activity sometimes accompanied by lava emission. Basaltic lava flows from both summit and flank vents have reached the caldera floor and the shores of Lake Batur in historical time. The caldera contains an active, 700-metre-tall stratovolcano rising above the surface of Lake Batur. The first historically documented eruption of Batur was in 1804, and it has been frequently active since then.
The caldera is populated and includes the two main villages of Kedisan and Toya Bungkah. The locals largely rely on agriculture for income but tourism has become increasingly popular due to the relatively straightforward trek to the summit of the central crater.

The principle of the thirds is respected, the sky, the volcano and the forest. The point of view is sending my eyes toward the volcano which is giving depth to the composition. It is also showing the details and colors of the scenery. The afternpoon light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

Bonjour, mon amie Ally,
Pas facile de rendre compte de l'ampleur du paysage à travers une photographie, et pourtant, félicitations pour cette composition où la nature s'étale avec majesté et beauté.
jafadabret (56501) 2010-05-28 4:38
J'aime le traitement que tu as fait subir à la photo pour lui donner plus de couleur et de contraste. Les lignes sont très harmonieuses, un régal !

Good evening Ally,
The Indonesian landscapes are not very numerous on TE, I thus appreciate this photograph spectacular, coloured agreeably and deep. Thank you for this interesting note. Cheer.
Have a good evening
pablominto (53744) 2010-05-30 22:59
A nicely framed landscape with interesting characteristics!
The rain forest is till dominating the scene but with some logging areas, I also notice roads leading into the area...
Well composed presentation, good colours!
Waylim (25368) 2010-06-01 13:56
beautiful and a classic composition, I like that you include much of the foreground with dense tropical trees and vegetation, The light is difficult but you managed a good shot, the top right is slightly over exposed but a very good effort with acceptable result.
adramad (39452) 2010-06-07 7:43
Wonderful scene with green hills in the foreground and behind the high top of Mount Batur, beautiful view of the sea also at the top. Great contrast in color with good lighting, a veru nice image of the lovely Bali. TFS. Best regards.

Nice shot of this beautiful landscape Ally, I also like very much the WS version, both have plenty of a wonderful tranquil atmosphere & clean air, certainly worth the hike. Well captured, excellent colour & light.
kato (11630) 2012-01-09 13:02
This is a grand scenery photograph, so it's interesting and impressive to see the green ground with some layers which spreads in the foot of a mountain and has loose ups and downs. And, it's impressive in the lake which is visible to the upper right, too.
