Blue Fire Crater - Kwah Ijen Volcano, East Java / Indonesia

At Kawah Ijen, extremely high quantities of sulfuric gases emerge at high pressures and temperatures [sometimes in excess of 600°C] along with the lava. Exposed to the oxygen present in air and sparked by lava, the sulfur burns readily, and its flames are bright blue. (french)
