Photographer's Note

The sulfur miners will hike daily for about 4 kilometers in total, to and fro from the foot of the volcano to the crater carrying their load of sulfurs weighing from 70-100 kilograms twice a day passing through nice green scenery.

The Ijen volcano complex is a group of stratovolcanoes, in East Java, Indonesia. It is inside a larger caldera Ijen, which is about 20 kilometers wide. The Gunung Merapi stratovolcano is the highest point of that complex.

An active vent at the edge of the lake is a source of elemental sulfur, and supports a mining operation.
