A view from the high ridge of Gunung (Mount) Kerinci on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia. Looking toward Gunung Tujuh, a lower mountain that has a crater. Taken early in the morning, around 7. AM. To get to this position you have to hike from the nearest village about 5-6 haours.

Spectacular mountain scenery, Henry. I like the shape of the dark skyline and the clouds are superb. Well done for a good first post and well done also for getting up so early! Welcome to TE.

Hi Henry, and welcome to TE
A very dynamic and dramatic shot, the cloud at the front really makes it.
A difficult exposure well managed.
Did you hike all through the night then? surely you must have camped up there.

One of the finest hide n seek [cloud n Mountain] Photographs I have ever seen.Even i have posted some similar shots [of different region]. but i find this one as a better capture.
Nice contrasts , Sharp shot.
Excellent is the World for this Photograph.

Wonderful graphism, & a spectacular pov. I did a hike to the crater lake at Gunung Tujuh, but the shots I took were nothing to rave about.
