Indonesia contains the most volcanoes of any country in the
world. Despite the wealth these bring in terms of fertile soil for
agriculture their activity brings much destruction as well. Mt Merapi is
the most active of the volcanoes and last year it erupted in October
killing more than 300 people and displacing 320,000.
The smoking culprit - Mt Merapi. Smoke is seen from the volcano
300 days a year. It erupts frequently the most recent being 1996, 2004 and
Homes still buried in the volcanic rubble in May 2011.
Many of the people displaced by the volcano included children.
These kids, now attending a mosque school, had been able to return to their
village a few months after the disaster once water sources were restored.
1. Learn your camera functions and modes - the camera is designed to help you
so try to discover what it can actually do for you!
2. Take care with your gear. Things easily get chipped, damaged and broken
by throwing down your bag or not being as careful as you can with it.
3. Always position yourself as close as possible to the action - don't be
afraid to get close.
