Floating high above the clouds
Mamma warned me I'd crash back down
But don't you know I'm a fool?
Away she ran and I'm a blind man
She didn't care for this old time can man
But don't you know I'm a fool?
God grace this unshaven face
I won't be stuck found in one place
Train's a comin', pain's a blowin'
Easy in the wind
But the sunrise
Is on my face
Keeping me warm
In its embrace
And all the things
That I've done
Brought me here
Where I belong
So thank the Lord that I'm a fool

"Dissolution of Eternity" | The Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon under fiery light, in it's endless cadence of moving pieces of ice, teaches us lessons of impermanence and dissolution. This place is quite simply the most beautiful work of moving art I've ever seen in my short life.
Story: After two trips to Iceland and much waiting, finally had the chance to witness an epic sunset at Jokulsarlon, with enough time to choose from the endless possible angles and compositions. Due to the fast moving pieces of ice, doing a long exposure would be impossible. Since the ice pieces were a few meters away from the shore and I wanted to get the classic immersive look of ultra wide angle lenses, had to enter into the almost frozen water to get this image. From time to time, chunks of melted ice would meet my legs with great subtlety, making me fell like a part of the whole moving scenario. Unforgettable.

"A myth is a way of making sense in a senseless world. Myths are narrative patterns that give significance to our existence."
The myth surrounding Kawah Ratu can be traced back in times when Prabu Siliwangi, the King of Hindu Pajajaran, reigned. Back then, the people of Sunda held a religious belief system of traditional Sundanese called Sunda Wiwitan.
Until Raden Kiansantang, one of his son converted to islam. On several occasion, he persuaded his father to convert as well. However, Prabu Siliwangi refused in order to honour his ancestral belief.
Prabu Siliwangi is said to have a close relationship with the ruler of South Java Sea: Kanjeng Ratu Kidul. For this reason, Kanjeng Ratu Kidul assigned Nyi Roro Kidul and some of her followers to guard him, not only from his enemies, but also from Islam. At the base of Mount Salak, it is believed that Prabu Siliwangi and his entire "Abdi Dalem" would rather "moksa"(disappear) than have to convert to Islam.
The followers of Kanjeng Ratu Kidul is believed to stay nearby the crater & at times manifesting themselves in the form of beautiful nymphs. Thus the crater is named the Crater of The Queen, a.k.a. Kawah Ratu 👸🏻
