Caption: Farming on a volcano. Farmer planting grass on the slopes of the Gunung Merapi (Mount Merapi) volcano to stabilise the soil. Gunung Merapi (Mount Merapi) is one of Indonesia's most active volcanoes, located on the island of Java, 28 kilometres north of the city of Yogyakarta. Its elevation in 2011 was 2930 metres. A series of eruptions in October and November 2010 produced pyroclastic flows and lahars (volcanic mud flows). Thought to be the largest eruptions here since the 1870s, over 350,000 people from villages and towns in the area were evacuated, and around 350 died. Photographed in March 2011, in the village of Kinahrejo.
