Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand



Bromo Volcano – Java, Indonesia

We had to wake up at 3.15 am to be picked up 15 minutes later. Crossing over the dessert like surface in pitch black surroundings. Up the hill we went, heading for the viewing point where we saw the sun rise behind the volcano. Minutes later we were back in the jeep stopping at the foot of the volcano. After climbing the stairs (yes there were stairs at the volcano) which was pretty hard due to the fact that we were pretty high and breathing was harder than normally, this was what we were rewarded with; the grand crater and a grand view.

Weekly photo challenge: Let there be light

Lake Batur – Bali, Indonesia

Arriving the previous day, which was dark due to heavy rain fall and had the thickest fogg I’ve ever experienced (we could literally see just up to one meter in front of us), we had no idea that this would be the view we were waking up to. The sunlight coming up from behind the mountain was one of the prettiest things we experienced and made up for the horrible weather from the day before. The sun just came up as if nothing happend. Ohh, only if I could wake up to this view every morning.
