Gunung Halimun Salak is a National Park in West Java, Indonesia. "Gunung" is the Bahasa Indonesian word for "mountain". This park in West Java was established in 1992.
The landscape of Gunung Halimun Salak is composed of different land uses such as farm land, tea plantations, settlement and some mining activity. Chevron, the energy company is also doing some geothermal mining activity in the area. The government of Indonesia declared the mountain a national park in 2003. Although a national park, multi-stakeholders and multiple land-uses that are taking place in the area has created some disagreement from the local people and the government.
I learned from some members of the community that the designation and activities in the national park contributed to the continued land degradation in the area even if there is the effort from the government to introduce collaborative management and zoning system.

la tua foto è molto suggestiva per la presenza della nebbia che sfuma tra le case e per il bel punto di vista che aiuta a fare una bella composizione.
I colori sono eccellenti così come contrasto e luminosità, soprattutto tenuto conto delle parfticolari condizioni atmosferiche.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

I really appreciate these real rustic scenes from far away countries.
It shows us how other people live around the world :)
the misty air certainly adds atmosphere and adds alot to the scene. I really like this moody shot.

I like this street scene but especially I like the atmosphere provided by the mist. I know that givwen a change in the weather this street would look entirely different but I prefer this slight moodiness here.

hi mics. a nice, moody street scene from a very far place for me. i like the mist and the trees hiding inside.

With the thick "fog soup" providing the backdrop, your composition works very nicely. The facing houses on the two sides of the street, and the details of the terra cotta tiles on the roofs adds an extra dimension.
