Bromo Volcano in Java

Located in eastern Java in Indonesia lies Bromo Tennger Semeru National Park. It’s home to a very active volcano, Bromo, which bellows steam and smoke out into the sky in a very primeval way.  German photographer Carolin Unrath visited recently, and has a lovely series of photos showing the views from up and around the national park, with great vantage points of the active landscape below.

In between the sea of sands rise the deeply fissured vulcanic cones of Batok and Bromo. The latter is still active with a cavernous crater from which smoke blows skyward. Drinking the sublime views of the Bromo Tennger Semeru National Park was on top of my bucketlist for years. The sunrise was a really fascinating spectacle, I have never seen before. Magical, surreal, and overwhelming.
The rosy glow on the eastern horizon was slowly growing into a burning semi-circle sun. The cold fresh air slowly disappeared as well as the darkness. The massif glowed in it’s beauty, partly covered by sulfur smoke and early morning fog. Nothing more to say.
