Photographer's Note

An over photographed destination I know, but with good reason as I discovered!

Most people visiting Bromo Tengger on Java are convinced by the 'tourist mafia' through scaremongering; "there wont be any accomodation or transport if you don't go on a tour" - they say....

To come on a package tour to this destination - arriving by night, scaling the surrounding peaks for sunrise by jeep, and leaving by 10am the following day is a travesty. In doing so they miss being able to explore a fantastic area with so much more to offer than just that same sunrise picture most have posted on TE of Bromo Tengger. I just spent 3 days there and had plenty to occupy myself with the whole time. The surrounding countryside is fantastically beautiful and well worth an explore.

This picture was taken mid afternoon. The sunlight was piercing through the clouds as they moved and I decided to sit and wait for about 20 minutes until the light on the ground was just as I wanted it.

Thanks for looking :)
