People seeking blessings climb to the peak of Mount Merapi, an active #volcano near Yogyakarta in #Indonesia. For a project he started years ago, Rony Zakaria has been exploring "that unexplainable belief that there’s something in the mountains and there’s something in the sea that you have to respect." He took this photo — one of the first in the series — on a cold morning in 2008.
