Is it on purpose(your composition) or is it smoke coming out of the mountaintop(read vulcano)???

Anyhow a great treatment again Scotty. Would love to visit your part of the world :-)
Have a great weekend with your wonderful family

Hey Ivar...That is Mount Merapi, and yes, that is smoke coming out of it...it was supposed to have a major eruption a couple of years ago, but it didn't come. However, the earth quakes that hit central Java were certainly related to Merapi.

What an amazing photograph

Judy said...

My first thought was that this has to be one of those computer generated shots they use for strange planets in the Star Trek universe - I have never seen anything like this before! The bells, the regular shape of the mountains, the colours in the sky!!! Awesome!!!

Sylvia K said...

Incredible, stunning, dramatic! Don't have enough words to describe this fantastic capture, Scotty! Oh, yes, I do hope you're a professional -- if not, you should be! Hope you have a great trip, look forward to your shots when you return.

Enjoy!

Sylvia

BTW - Lombok means wallet in Norwegian, lol. So while I am walking around in a picture, you are walking around in a wallet ;)
