Photographer's Note

Gunung Agung volcano, taken at dusk from Lombok Island, which is east of Bali. The volcano is approximately 3,000 metres high (9,000 feet) & last erupted in 1963. There is a boat on the horizon at left.

The Lombok Trench, which separates Bali & Lombok, is 5,000 metres deep, so the sea really is this deep cobalt blue color. The volcano is approximately 30 km away from Lombok, & it takes 4.5 hours by vehicular ferry, to travel between the islands. So the haze was fairly strong, because of the distance.
