Java - Indonesia 

The Indonesian island of Java was formed mainly by a series of volcanic eruptions, and now features an east-west chain of volcanoes through the islands centre. The most well known of the volcanoes is Mount Bromo, in Eastern Java. The name Bromo derives from the Javanese pronunciation of the Hindu God Brahma. Mount Bromo is a very active volcano, last erupting in 2015, and before that, in 2011. 

The main languages spoken on the island of Java are Javanese and Indonesian. The nations Capital, Jakarta, is located in the far west, on the northern coast. 

Two miners, alongside the green crater lake, are carrying heavy loads of sulfur on their shoulders. Such a view you will often encounter while on Mt. Ijen, East Java.
