Stars Above Bromo by AndyMumford
Stars Above Bromo
We arrived on the edge of the crater overlooking the caldera at around 3am and the sky was full of really bright stars.  This image uses the intervalometer on the Fuji X-T1 to show the stars movement across the sky for a little over an hour as the sky went from complete darkness to pale pre-dawn light.  
If you notice on the edge of the crater to the right of centre there’s a red/orange glow which was visible even in complete darkness.  There are a couple of very active volcanos in this image, so I assume it’s some kind of lava glow from a crater.
This is the fifth shot I’ve uploaded from this location on the edge of Bromo crater, it’s a genuinely stunning and unique place.

Bromo Dawn by AndyMumford
Bromo Dawn
Mount Bromo, in the Tengger Semeru National park is one of those locations that no amount of photos can do justice to.  
We climbed up to the edge of the the huge crater of the long extinct Tengger Volcano, from which there are views across Mount Batok (in the middle) Mount Bromo (the large smoking crater) and finally Mount Semeru (the large volcano at the back, and the highest peak on Java).  It's a wonderful place to be for sunrise as the sun paints the side of Mount Batok with first light as mist floods the caldera mixing with the smoke from Bromo. We were there from about two in the morning until well after 7am, when the light was too harsh too photograph anymore.  Then we went down into the crater, walked across the Sea of Sand, and climbed the side of Bromo to look into the smoking crater.  It was a really cool morning
East Java Sunrise by AndyMumford
East Java Sunrise
Looking east from Penanjakan on the Bromo crater as the sun rises across the volcanos of eastern Java.  The small peak surrounded by cloud is the Gunung Lembongan, and behind that and to the left  is the 3000m Gunung Argapura.  Behind that is the smoking Gunung Raung, the volcano that disrupted so many flights to and from Bali in August and September.  It's  about 120km away from where we were standing.
This is shot handheld with a Fuji XT10 and  55-200mm lens because my main camera, a Fuji X-T1 was attached to my tripod and facing the other direction shooting a sequence for star trails and sunrise.  I didn't want to interrupt or move the camera, but the views to the east and on the edge of the crater were amazing, so I found myself shooting two completely different directions with two cameras from the same spot.
It was a really amazing morning, and one of the most incredibly natural environments I've ever been to.

Whenever I write a journal on DA now it seems to be apologizing for not participating in the community, writing journals or submitting work.


It's just no longer possible for me to keep up with various social sites with the workload I have at the moment.

In the meantime it appears I got a DD for a shot from Tuscany I submitted a few years ago.  Thanks so much for that, it's always an honour.  And thanks for all the people who've faved or commented on my work, or added me to their watch last (only to discover that I haven't added any new work).
Also, apologies to all the people I watch who have been submitting work and I haven't commented on it.  I'll try to remedy that this month.

Anyway, I've just got back from 2 and a half weeks in Iceland.....what an AMAZING country. The weather was, for the large part, crap (2 or 3 degrees above freezing with high winds, rain, hail, and occasionally snow....and it's their summer!), but even so, the place is just astonishing in it's diversity and just plain jaw dropping epic-ness!!!

I'll be posting images over the coming weeks.

The best place to keep up with my work is my blog

But I also submit at Google+…
