I took this photo in one early morning when I visited this active volcano..
Just one word : BROMO IS B E A U T I F U L !!
Mount Bromo, is an active volcano and part of the Tengger massif, in East Java, Indonesia. At 2,329 meters 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 attractions in East Java, Indonesia. The volcano belongs to the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park.
Mount Bromo sits in the middle of a vast plain called the Sand Sea, a protected nature reserve since 1919. The typical way to visit Mount Bromo is from the nearby mountain village of Cemoro Lawang. From there it is possible to walk to the volcano in about 45 minutes, but it is also possible to take an organised jeep tour, which includes a stop at the viewpoint on Mount Penanjakan (2,270 meters). The best views from Mount Bromo to the Sand Sea below and the surrounding volcanoes are at sunrise. The viewpoint on Mount Penanjakan can also be reached on foot in about two hours.
If you plan to go to Indonesia, so this place is a must and very recommended!

this seems to be a wonderful place...it looks a nit too saturated in colours for me, but great nevertheless...
Take care, Ivana

C'est effectivement un paysage magnifique.
L'alternance lumière couchante - ombre est superbe, de même que le brouillard qui se déverse sur la gauche, comme l'eau d'un barrage.
Il ne manque plus qu'une éruption...
Une très bonne photo.

That's an impressively beautiful location!
The moment of capture was so perfectly chosen with all those low clouds and that special sunlight!
Sharpness, exposure, pov, dof, colors and composition are superb!
TFS - congratulations!

I subscribe to your sentiment, this is a magnificent setting. I've seen a photograph of it only once before and could not believe it. Take a look at his version, Capthaddock's version. The beauty comes through in both versions. Yours has that amorphous quality resulting from the low lying mist. I am going to New Delhi for 4-5 days and Bangkok for about 4 days. If there is any way to get to Jawa Timur in a couple the Bangkok days, I will do it after seeing this photo.
