Indonesia has an estimated 18,000 islands, but only 8,844 have been named, and only 922 are permanently inhabited. So it is not surprising that the people have an intimate relationship with the water, with an amazing variety of water craft of all sizes and shapes. In this image a floating village of a few pinsi-style wooden boats are rafted up along a sand bar with a small mountainous island in the background. Taken off the west coast of East Nusa Tenggara near Rinca Island.
Note added re the cone-shaped island. Lots of the Indonesian islands are have volcanic shapes since Indonesia is located at the junction of 4 tectonic plate boundaries (Australia, Eurasian, Filipino, and Pacific), which makes it very seismically active.
