Simply astonishing.



 
Sometimes, you just need a break, in a beautiful place, alone. To figure everything out. -taken during my trip to Kawah Putih, Bandung, Indonesia on June 15, 2013.


Kawah Putih lake is one of the two craters which make up Mount Patuha, an andesitic stratovolcano, a composite volcano. Kawah Putih is a sizeable highly acid lake with pH range of 0.5 to 1.3 which changes colour from bluish to whitish green, or brown, depending on the concentration of sulfur and the temperature or the oxidation state. The sand and rocks surrounding the lake have been also leached into whitish colours through interaction with the acidic lake water. 


With love,
