    Dear God those are amazing pictures. The *colour* of burning sulfur, wow.

    Must add The Big Picture to my feeds. And ... done. Sweet.

    I cannot believe this images at all. Acid lakes? Burning Sulfur? Where's Dante when you need him.

    Also, nice job that: fetching raw sulfur from the shores of an acid lake. Looks great on a resume.

    Am I the only one who is thinking Star Wars Ep3?

    The best part about this mine, is arguably it is completely environmentally friendly by simply collecting sulfur that would otherwise spill out into the surroundings.

    The Wikipedia article says the pH of that lake is 0.5. That makes it more acidic than your stomach.
