I was returning home after filming on the rim of Mount Bromo, Java. I had been amongst thousands of Javanese people as they threw offerings to the volcano god in thanks for the fertility of their land. Now, as I looked down at the endless patchwork of rice fields, I had a renewed respect for the deep connection that the Javanese farmers have with these volatile expressions of the deep earth. The soil here is so rich that it is capable of producing three harvests of rice a year, more than enough to feed the 145 million people that call this home. #BBCEarth #EarthCapture #EarthOnLocation #Planescape #Java #Indonesia #Rice #Farming #Aerial #Volcano
