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 special place, where we had to start short path up hill to a place called Penanjakan that is known as the best spot to see 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 warm jacket and thick underwear was good to have. I set up a tripod with some nice view, and we waited.
Very slowly some colours showed on 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 on the sky, but we still waited to 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 possibility of observing outstanding view.
Some very tiny clouds were over the volcanoes, but both bottoms were covered in 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 completely different story.
This early morning fulfilled one of our dreams.
