Morning Java

Photograph by Achmad Sumawijaya

Photographer Achmad Sumawijaya waited three hours to capture this picture of Mount Bromo (in foreground) and Mount Semeru (in background) on a misty morning in East Java, Indonesia. Some Indonesians believe that the volcanoes are portals to a subterranean world.

This photo was submitted to the 2014 National Geographic Photo Contest.

Beautiful!!!  Such pictures of landscapes were made in my young years only with cameras with the focal lengths 110 mm or more. Old times... But - this is a very nice picture, congratulation!
