Mount Bromo is part of the Bromo-Tennger-Semeru National Park located in East Java, Indonesia. The National Park, occupying 800 square kilometers, is home to Mount Bromo, a well-known active volcano (which regularly spews white sulphurous smoke) that lies in the middle of the Sea of Sand within the massive Tengger Caldera. Sharing the spotlight with Mount Bromo (center of image) is Mount Semeru (left of image) which is Indonesia’s most active volcano as it spews out steam and smoke every 20 minutes and Mount Batok (right of image) which stands at around 2470m above sea level.
The composite image above shows the spiral star trails taken in Singapore and the milkyway appearing as the moon set in between Mount Bromo (left) and Mount Batok (right). You may witness the beautiful milkyway galaxy unveiling itself as the moon set in my timelapse movie below.
My next Mount Bromo Astrophotography Tour cum Workshop will be held in August 2014 and if you are keen to join me, please kindly email your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org or if you happen to be in Kuala Lumpur on 12 March 2014, I will be hosting my first astrophotography talk in Swiss Garden Hotel and you are most welcome to join and network with other photography enthusiasts!
