Photographer's Note

Bali - Kintamani
Batur volcano and his lake are located in north east Bali. Batur is one of the most impressive calderas in the world. Legends say that the Batur volcano is actually the peak of the Mahameru mountain in India that was removed by the God Pasupati. He carried two pieces of the peak and put it in Bali to use them as thrones. The bigger piece became the Agung volcano, which is a throne for his son, Putranjaya, and the smaller became the Batur volcano, which is the throne of Goddess Danu.
