Skywatch Friday

Back from the dead - so to speak. Computer fixed, new camera.

 Thought I'd share this shot of a volcano in Bali.  It is active and if you look carefully you can see some smoke coming out of the side of the mountain. The volcano is called Mount Batu. That is smoke overhead - not clouds.

We were sitting in a restaurant on another hill. There were many such eating places along the road  there with crowds of people watching the volcano through big picture windows  -  all SKYWATCHING.

For those of you who are interested, I have added this shot taken from above the volcano. You can actually walk up to the top of the mountain. It last erupted in 1999-2000.

Needless to say, I did not take this shot.


  1. Pretty in shades of gray and blue!
    I hope spewing some smoke releases the pressure so it doesn't really blow its top.

  2. yeah, that's what I thought too - Wow!

  3. I though they were clouds till I read your write up. Not sure I'd want to be watching a live volcano. Very nice photo

  4. Impressive! Sure hope it doesn't blow it's top!!

  5. Great view and great capture,calm before the eruption?

    1. It hasn't seriously erupted for a few years as far as I can remember from what our driver told us.

  6. Such a great view and better from a safe distance!

  7. Awesome image! I like the layering of the hills/mountains, like a Japanese painting. Smoke?! I hope it did not give off a sulfurous odor.

  8. This seems so magical to me, Liz!
