Friday Lens Affair 135

Bromo Volcano, Java, Indonesia

This week I’m hosting an amazing picture of Bromo Volcano. Yes, yet another one :) This place just seems like a natural beauty I have to see one day! To see another shot of Mount Bromo click the link :)

Today’s shot was taken by Oliwia Papatanasis from The Ollie Blog. Oliwia is quite small, a bit crazy girl who does not look her age, but she doesn’t feel old, so actually, everything is alright ;)

One day she got the camera and dared to document her travels, what turned out to be a fascinating and satisfaction giving activity.

She decided to develop her skills and to show the places she visited on her blog. Exactly as she sees, remember and recall them.

Sceneries and travel adventures are always subjective, filled with feelings, colours and emotions – and such are her pictures, filled with her vision of the world.

You should follow her on Instagram and Facebook.

Photo Story: Bromo Volcano

An idea of another journey has been slowly growing in my head. Southeast Asia. No doubts about it – I’m partial to this part of the world, people, architecture and of course food.

While wondering which country to visit I heard and read a lot that I should definitely go to Indonesia.

I was not particularly convinced and I was putting decision aside. But finally one day I paid more attention to that huge land.

Right away I jumped on the keyword – volcanoes. When I realised that the sulphuric monster I had admired in television is located in Java which is quite easily accessible.

Then everything went smooth. Finding further attractions was straightforward, the problem was how to fit them all in the time we had.

On the way from Bromo Volcano – to another – Ijen – it was slowly dusking when we left the jungle and we saw this stunning view. It was simply beautiful.

Not only the colours were amazing but a huge Bromo Volcano in the background added a lot to the scenery. We were knocked-out.

Bromo Volcano is a part of the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park.

At 2,392 meters tall, Mt Bromo is not among the tallest of Indonesia’s mountains but its stunning beauty lies in its incredible setting.

The best place to watch Mount Bromo is a vantage point on Mount Penanjakan.

Mt Bromo has particular significance for the Tengger people who believe that this was the site where a brave prince sacrificed his life for his family.

The people here appease the Gods once a year during the annual Kasada festival where offerings of vegetables, chickens and money are thrown into the crater of the volcano.

    • As far as I’m concerned it is an active volcano, it is part of the Tengger massif, in East Java, Indonesia.
