At the end, the travelling that has been discussed over the year become a reality. The team met on Wednesday at Surabaya as rendezvous point. Wandi, Borneo, Aceng, Rary, Shinta and the surprising one om Cahyadi from Singapore. Like the old time, but different moment. This time we going to explore one of the beautiful volcano in Indonesia, Bromo.
At the following day, we were picked up by pak Fitri at Bumi hotel as our host and the founder of Sembrono team, but pak Fitri didnt came alone, some of his crew were join and make the trip more fun and hilarious. Using 3 cars, we headed go to Cemorolawang, the nearby village of caldera which directly opposite with mount Bromo and mount Batok. After arrived at Lava View lodge, we hurried to capture the sunset. The view was amazing, the sun light look so bright, shone the mount Batok and mount Bromo that stand side by side surrounded by giant caldera.

Mount Bromo (2,329 metres), is an active volcano and part of the Tengger area, in East Java, Indonesia. The volcano belongs to the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park. The name of Bromo derived from Javanese pronunciation of Brahma, the Hindu creator god. Mount Bromo and mount Batok sits in the middle of a vast plain called the "Sea of Sand" (Javanese: Segara Wedi or Indonesian: Lautan Pasir), a protected nature reserve since 1919.

Capturing sunset
With his experience, skill and sense, Wandi founded above spot to capture the view, the best spot to capture the moment, where both the mountain and sunspots appear lengthening, very ideal spot to capture with medium range lens. During this moment, everybody busy since we didn't want to miss the amazing moment.
The picture below is the opposite side which showed the colourful sky that I never see before, where the clouds was lower from us.

Colour of Cemorolawang
Less than one hour, the sky changed to dark but the sun still shines behind the clouds, throws the colour of the sky become fantastic scenery while Batok stand quietly and Bromo keep smoking. What a drama.
