View from Bromo Mountain (Gunung Bromo) by 

Inside a large volcanic crater is the Lautan Pasir (Sea of Sand) and Gunung Bromo (Bromo Mountain), Taman Nasional Semeru – Bromo – Tengger (Semeru – Bromo – Tengger National Park) in Jawa Timur (East Java), Indonesia.

This is the view from Gunung Bromo towards another ‘hill’. Gunung Bromo and is one of Indonesia’s many active volcanoes. During the end of 2010 and beginning of 2011, it became more active than usual, releasing thick clouds of dark smoke and blanketting the surrounding region with ash (as can be seen in this image!).

In the foreground, you can see the staircase (which assists in the last section of the climb to the crater rim) has had to be ‘dug’ out of the lava/mud flow from the recent activity.

Canon EOS 450D, EF 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5, CPL filter.

    awesome spot, great shot! :)

  • Thanks Dieter – it certainly is quite a spectacular spot. The first time I went there to watch the sunrise but it was raining, the second time we couldn’t get near the place because it was erupting, this time I got ‘favourable’ conditions!

    This reminded me of how cool it looks on Google Earth (feel free to delete)…

  • That does look quite cool – I kept meaning to look it up on Google but never thought of it while I was online…
    That image was obviously taken before the recent volcanic activity which spread grey ash all over the surrounding areas!

    This would be something to see in reality. Great shot.!!

  • Thanks Nautilus! It certainly is quite something to see – while it’s not as spectacular as some of the larger volcanoes, it’s a whole lot easier to climb!

    Interesting image. It looks like there are two people walking/climbing along a wall of some kind? Strange seeing a wall on the edge of a volcanoe. I love your angle for this. :)

  • Ann, it’s actually a set of steps leading up to the rim of the crater, and has concrete ‘balustrades’. The recent eruptions buried the stairway up to the top of the balustrades but the stairs have been dug out again.
