Peace at the Feet of Nature's Fury

This photo was taken at Mount Bromo in East Java, Indonesia in July 2016. It shows my girlfriend and her mother (who are both native Indonesian) on horseback preparing to climb with me to the peak of the active volcano seen in the background. I felt this picture best encapsulates the adventurous spirit with which the three of us explored new parts of Indonesia that none of us had ever been to before.
