Blue Lava in Indonesian Volcano

During the day, the Kawah Ijen volcano in East Java, Indonesia, resembles any other. However, what appears to be electric-blue lava streams down the mountain at night. The unique blue glow is actually a result of the sulfuric gases in the volcano combusting, similar to a natural gas flame. Without the aid of a guide andmotivated by a childhood love of volcanos, photographer Reuben Wu took the arduous journey into the Ijen caldera to photograph the blue pools.

“I had discovered this phenomenon a number of years back on a website belonging to the volcano photographer Martin Rietze and have wanted to go since then. I like the idea of volcanoes being an unstable and volatile part of a landscape, existing as nexuses of both creation and destruction,” said Wu.
