The sulfur miners of Ijen Volcano in Indonesia arguably have the toughest job on Earth. The make an hour long climb to the top of the volcano, descend several hundred feet into the crater, and then carve sulfur rock from the steaming maw of the volcano with little or no protective gear. Then they haul 200 pounds of rock on their backs up to the top of the crater, and then all the way back down to the bottom of the mountain. And then they go back up for another load! This is grueling, dangerous work, but the miners do it with style and gritty determination. When I spotted this man wearing a bright yellow jersey, I knew it would work great with the yellow sulfur and the pastel yellow/green color scheme of the landscape.

Tryin to start a discussion here for fun. Does anyone have random photos that maybe aren't that great in and of themselves, but are just attempts at trying new things or something? Or maybe you have cabin fever this winter and are stuck inside taking random photos. I was up at my church with my camera and just tried some stuff, just for practice, not for anything too serious. I came up with this, among others. Maybe I'm just weird! Haha
