Photographer's Note

We had been up since 3.30am and had gone to the viewpoint for the sunrise over Mount Bromo, one of the classic views on Java.
Unfortunately there was too much fog, and since it was so cold we decided to walk back down to the hotel for breakfast.
As the sun began to break through the mist dissolved and beautiful scenes began to unfold - it was though we were walking down into a spiritual, unearthly landscape. We were afraid of breaking the mood so no-one spoke - it was so quiet we thought we could almost hear the mist moving among the trees.
In the hotel others who had driven down the mountain complained about not seeing the sunrise, but we had memories and photographs of a special walk.

This has been scanned from a slide. After I had adjusted curves and levels I noticed that the noise and grain were giving interesting effects - like an impressionist painting.
So I simply added a frame and left it.
