Above the clouds

The sunrise on Ijen Crater, East Java, was not what he had hoped it to be. The Hydrogen Sulfide gas escaping from the crater covered the whole rim and it was difficult to breath, even through our gas masks. The sulpheric acid lake remained hidden, but on the way down it was awesome to spot a thick layer of fog beneath us....an Incredible morning for sure.
