Flujos de lava azul en Kawah Ijen,Indonesia

Un volcán de lava azul

El fotógrafo Olivier Grunewald explora un volcán remoto en Indonesia que escupe ríos de lava azul.

La mayoría de nosotros se largaría pitando con sólo pensar que se encuentra junto a un volcán en erupción pero, para el fotógrafo Olivier Grunewald, la recompensa de ver de cerca los misterios del Kawah Ijen, en Indonesia, no tiene precio.

Con rocas que escupen llamas azules de cinco metros de altura, los gases sulfúricos son responsables de uno de los flujos de lava azul más surrealistas del mundo.

Para poder hacer estas fotos, Grunewald tuvo que llevar máscara de gas todo el tiempo pero la aventura bien mereció la pena y aquí tienes algunas de las fotos más espectaculares de su viaje.

But the loads they carry, weighing between 80 and 100 kilos, cost them their healthÑand sometimes their life. By working nights, they manage to haul out two loads every 24 hours, doubling their salary, avoiding the daytime heat of the Kawah Ijen cauldron, and despite the condition remaining independent

For over 40 years, miners have been extracting sulphur from the crater of Kawah Ijen in Indonesia. To double their meagre income, the hardiest of these men work nights, by the electric blue light of the sulphuric acid exhaled by the volcano.

At the foot of the glow, miners bustle amidst the toxic fumes. They are monitoring the flow of molten sulphur as it pours out of pipes at 115 ¡C, and its subsequent crystallisation. Breaking up, gathering up, loading up and transporting the coagulated blood of the earth earns them a living. By the blue light of the flare, they extract hunks of sulphur, then carry them up the flank of the crater to sell for 600 roupees per kilo (about Û0.04).
