Today I’m featuring a spectacular photography of Mount Bromo in Indonesia, taken by Łukasz Kędzierski.
Łukasz travels with his wife, Agnieszka, and little daughter Nadia to prove it is possible and to inspire other parents to travel with kids.
They like to be close to people, to get to know their way of living, taste local food, and see some interesting (not always equal to popular) places.
Picture Story: Mount Bromo Sunrise
Mount Bromo was one of the reasons why we came to Indonesia. Many years ago I saw beautiful pictures of sunrise in this place and I wanted to see it with my own eyes. So that’s why we came on Java.
The beginning of the day was really simple.
We had to wake up at 3.30 at night and the begin we drove by a 4×4 car to a designated place, where we had to start short path uphill to a place called Penanjakan that is known as the best spot to see the sunrise over the Mount Bromo volcano.
Of course, everything depends on the weather conditions, but it looks that very often there are quite good.
It was quite cold regarding that we were in Indonesia, so a warm jacket and thick underwear were good to have. I set up a tripod with some nice view, and we waited.
Here is a list of the best tripods under 100$.
Very slowly some colours showed in the sky, and some lights came out.
Far away dawn there was a lot of mist at the bottom of the caldera where is “sea sand”. Thick fog very tight covered the Mount Bromo and Mount Batok hills.
More colours showed in the sky, but we still waited for the first sun rays.
And finally, it happened. All see sand was highlighted by the very first rays of morning light.
It was starting to be warm, but very pleasant and nice soft light gave us the possibility of observing outstanding view.
Some very tiny clouds were over the volcanoes, but both bottoms were covered with the nice mist.
All around was very quiet and only some sounds of shutters were heard. It was not surprising – the landscape was amazing.
After this interesting spectacle, we were driven to the bottom of Mount Bromo, but this is a completely different story. This early morning fulfilled one of our dreams.
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 name of Bromo derived from Javanese pronunciation of Brahma, the Hindu creator god.
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.
