From the Top

Photograph by Hendra Gunawan, National Geographic Your Shot

Sulphur streaks the rocky, lake-filled Ijen crater in East Java, Indonesia. Your Shot member Hendra Gunawan captured this shot after climbing to the crater in the early hours of the morning. “I went to the top,” he says, “and found a beauty I cannot write in words.”

Gunawan's picture was recently published in Your Shot's Daily Dozen.
