Photographer's Note

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.
Within this caldera, the Kawah Ijen volcano has a one-kilometer-wide turquoise-colored acid crater lake. The lake is the site of a labor-intensive sulfur mining operation, in which sulfur-laden baskets are carried by hand from the crater floor (source : Wikipedia)

You can reach easily the summit by foot after 2 hours of walk. The scenery is unbelieveble and unbreathelable due to the sulfuric vapors especially if you go down the crater.

No post production was applied. The very dark blue sky is due to the polarising filter I use.
