Awesome And Magical Mt. Bromo!
When things are too good to be described, there are no words. However, the recent trip to Probolinggo, East Java, Indonesia, to shoot Mt. Bromo left us with two that Andrew cried, “Awesome and Magical!”
I was hoping to do a time lapse of lightning in the distance and wound up having this – star trails.
My focus was on manual to infinity but I didn’t do a good job in the dark and photos turned out blurry.
This scene is not real.
It is what I would liked to have captured – Stars and Lightning.
Unable to do a good job with the lightning, I turned back towards the stars.
And hey, there were 2 shooting stars (at different times on that night), too fast for me to capture but my friends did.
And is the cloudy patch in the middle of this photo part of THE Milky Way?
Pretty soon, the sun rose.
Our first sunrise since reaching Probolinggo.
It is Awesome!
The mountains looked deceivingly small.
The one with mist coming out is Mt. Bromo.
That’s where we’ll be heading the next day.
Our last stop for phototaking just before returning to Singapore.
After the sun rose, we headed back to the Lava View Hotel for breakfast – a meal that Benjamin said he was looking forward to in this hotel.
He had been to Mt. Bromo before and stayed at this very same hotel.
Nasi Goreng (fried rice), Mie Goreng (fried noodles) and an Egg Station alongside the toasts, butter and jams.
There’s fruits, juices, coffee and tea service, too!
Well Benjamin, this breakfast meal was not bad but nothing outstanding, either.
And if this was the most welcoming out of the 3 meals provided, I shudder at the thought of lunch and dinner.
Look out for more photos in my next post of this Awesome and Magical Mt. Bromo!
Happy traveling and bonding 🙂
