Photographer's Note

Still trawling through the archives;

That's the farming village of Cemoro Lawang 2300m elevation, located on the edge of massive Tengger Caldera rim - a crater that stretches about 17km across. As can be seen, the steep walls plunge almost
vertically about half a kilometer down to a vast flat 'Sea of Black Lava Sand' - an extensive plain consisting of volcanic sediment from past eruptions, leading to the most active Bromo volcano.

An early morning shot was taken from the highest vantage point on Mt Pananjakan and this's a much as the mist cleared that morning. Without doubt is one of the most spectacular volcanic landscapes I have had the good fortune to visit- it was a well worth getting up for and make pictures.

This for me just proves that life will find a foot hold anywhere if given a chance.

Setting; 160 mm, 1/100 sec, F10, ISO Raw 200, 0607 hrs
