Sulfur Miner Before Sunrise Igen Volcano

This man is a sulfur miner at that bottom of a volcano in Indonesia. He uses a sharpened piece of rod iron to pry out pieces of sulfur from the bottom of the volcano. The tubes run from gas vents to the miner. The gaseous sulfur is solidifying at his feet as it cools.
