A potentially life-threatening natural disaster to some is a photo opportunity of a lifetime to others.

Mount Agung in Bali may be belching less ash and smoke in recent days, but the volcano is still on the highest alert level, after rumbling to life in September and showing signs of eruption in late November.



I always trust my intuition, and since the beginning of the story I wasn't worried.

However, the ensuing chaos after flights to and from the island were cancelled has not put off foreign thrill-seekers keen for a close-up look at the volcano. In fact, the element of danger has probably fuelled their curiosity.



GAMES OF VOLCANOES
PHOTO: "*** GAMES OF VOLCANOES *** I think you already realixed a few things about volcano eruption in Bali: we are safe and no panic here.
And now we have a new trend in fb communities. One day somebody had posted the picture of volcano ash and wrote: 'Look! I see somebody's face in the ash!" And after that everybody is trying to recognize something in volcano ash.
LET'S PLAY THE GAME! What do you see in this ash smoke? I see hedgehog.

The active volcano has become the new selfie destination according to some reports, with tourists pausing outside the 10km exclusion zone for a quick snap.



I woke up today at 3:55 AM with the intention to drive towards Agung to see the volcanic eruption and ash cloud, and also I wanted to pet a puppy.

I've done one of the two. It's only 9 AM I'm still hopeful that I will find a puppy to love. Here's a shot from Batur in the hot springs. You can see the ash cloud behind me from Mother Earth speaking to us.

One hot location is the picturesque Lempuyang Temple, or 'Gates of Heaven', as ash and smoke can be seen gushing from Mount Agung in the background.

"Mount Agung has erupted, but it doesn't mean that we are swimming in lava and grabbing cars to the neighbor island. Don't worry, take a trip!
THE TRUTH ABOUT THE VOLCANO ERUPTION IN BALI
The level of warning was raised. But it doesn't mean that we are swimming in lava and grabbing cars to rush to the neighbor island. It means that a volcanic explosion and the release of lava is possible in a ZONE OF UP TO 10KM.
The Airport Already OPEN on November 29th at 14:28LT

Said Australian Jill Powers, who told Daily Mail Australia that she planned to travel to Bali to see the volcano: 'Sounds stupid but yes, I have it on my bucket list to see a live volcano.'

'I think it would be my only chance to tick it off.'

However, Indonesian authorities warn that at least 100,000 islanders will likely be forced to leave in case of a full eruption.

Celeste Yarnall, born 1944, in a publicity photo for Eve (USA 1968) a.k.a. The Face of Eve (UK).
Publicity still taken in a park in London for the film I would soon star in called EVE (AKA The Face of EVE) opposite Sir Christopher Lee! 1967.
If jungle adventure movies have taught us anything, it’s that modern man, with all his so-called “refinement” and “civilization”, is the most dangerous animal of all. …

Real Name:  Barbara Kowin. Barbara Shelley, the classic Hammer honey and scream queen should be familiar to everyone who’s ever expressed a liking for classic horror. Glamorous, statuesque, classy, intelligent, and sexy to boot, she was a perfect fit for the Gothic maidens and villainesses of the golden era of "Hammer Glamour."  She is often referred to as "The Queen of British Horror."
Barbara Shelley always gives an outstanding performance and makes it look easy. The statuesque actress is an absolute delight!
