I just read that the Indonesian volcano Mount Sinabung in North Sumatra appears to be calming down. Which is good news for a coworker who is - supposed to be - on her way to the island nation this week. Having experienced my own vacation plans erupt this spring due to the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull, I couldn't be more sympathetic to her plight. Though, when traveling to Indonesia - the ground zero hotbed of earthly Vulcan activity - I suppose there's always a pretty good possibility that one of the country's 130 active volcanoes will throw a smoking hot - or molten, even - wrench in your travel plans.

Deadly beasts, but so beautiful too, right? Particularly when they're dormant, like the painterly volcano in this serene sunrise.

Your comments on this image are welcome, and encouraged! And a question for the photographer - foogray - if s/he is so inclined: Is there anything special about this moment, day, trip, or place beyond what you've shared on Flickr that you'd like to add or comment on here? Along with other vivaca visitors, I would love to know more!
