Artist's Description

The Milky Way over Mount Batok, Mount Bromo (the crater with sulphur billowing out), and Mount Semeru; East Java, Indonesia. (One single shot for this one.)

I feel so privileged to have seen this amazing sight…
…and I’m very grateful.

Grateful to have been with a wonderful group of photographers from all over the world, brought together by my “little big sister” Agatha: undoubtedly one of the most organised, generous, talented photographers in Indonesia!

Grateful to see this spectacular sight: the clear night sky showing the blazing Milky Way over Mt Batok and the Mt Bromo crater, with Mt Senaru blowing a little sulphur puff in the distance.

Grateful for the bright moon that lit up the scene below, and the fog/sulphur that had settled at the base of the mountains, making such a picturesque scene. And grateful that I managed to get this one shot without the headlights of the jeeps that usually light up patches of the fog below.

I doubt very much I’ll remember the cold and the lack of sleep and the condensation I had to keep wiping off my lenses … A photo like this makes it all worthwhile!
