Sparkeling bombs

Batu Rara is a volcano located on Komba island, off Lembata in Indonesia. I have been climbing volcanoes for many years, but this is the first time I witness how the gas pushes the rocks. As the crater partly collapsed, we can see both the bottom of the explosion within the rim, and the full cloud.
