Awesome sunrise Moment with Mount Agung View from Nusa lembongan🌎💙
The area around Mount Agung has seen hundreds of tremors and signs of magma rising to the surface in recent days.
Authorities have imposed a 12km (7.5 miles) exclusion zone around the mountain and issued their highest level alert on Friday.
The island's main tourist areas and flights remain unaffected for now.
Indonesia's national volcanology centre said in a statement (in Indonesian) on Sunday night that the mountain's "seismic energy is increasing and has the potential to erupt".
Officials said they started detecting shallow tremors in late August, and first raised the alert from "normal" to the second-tier "vigilant" level on 14 September. Indonesia has a four-level volcano alert system.
Within days the volcano showed increasing signs of activity, and authorities stepped up their alerts and evacuations of the rural villages surrounding the mountain. The area is now under the highest "danger" level.
Thousands of Balinese are now living in shelters in town halls and schools, with authorities trucking in tonnes of aid supplies. Some communities have also set up livestock shelters for the cows which they had to leave behind. Mount Agung, which is more than 3,000m above sea level, lies in the eastern part of Bali, which is a popular tourist destination.
The volcano is about 70km from the main tourist areas of Kuta and Seminyak, which remain unaffected for now. Flights in and out of Bali are operating normally.
