Mount Bromo(Indonesian: Gunung Bromo)- Panoramic shot setp-up from six vertical picture. Bromo is active volcano in East Jawa, Indonesia. At 2,329 metres (7,641 ft) it is not the highest peak of the massif, but is the most well known. The massif area is one of the most visited tourist places in Jawa. Mount Bromo sits in the middle of a vast plain called the "Sea of Sand" which is protected nature reserve. The typical way to visit Mount Bromo is from the nearby mountain village of Cemoro Lawang. From there it was possible to walk to the volcano in about 45 minutes, but because of recent a present acitivityx of the volcano is this way now closed and the only possibility is to climb by narrow pathto the viewpoint under the peak of Mount Penanjakan (2,770 m or 9,088 ft) The best views to the Mount Bromo, the Sand Sea below and the surrounding volcanoes are at sunrise. We started our trip at 3.00 a.m.; outside was absolutely dark, temperature around 0 Celsius (previous day in Jogjakarta was 32 degrees) and after a few minutes we have been covered by volcano ash. But the result of our efford was perfect – unearthly view of active volcano, heavy clouds of ash, all going along with noisy acoustical effects

Paesaggio e foto incredibilmente belli! Bella anche la luce e strepitoso quel cielo!! Mi piace anche la scelta del formato "panoramica"!

Another great view of Bromo in action with fine light and beautiful colours. Colour contrast is superb here in particular the skyscape color against the dust colors coming your way is fantastic. The light dash on the sand sea is another added value that further boost the overall effect. Great perspective and you composed it from the best vantage point with very excellent quality. Great shot my friend.
