Mount Bromo, Java
Photograph by Tim Jenka
At the foot of the active volcano Bromo on the island of Java lies the Hindu temple Pura Luhur Poten, which is often immersed in a soft mist at dusk. On this day Mount Bromo showed unusually strong activity, which lead to an exceptionally high and dense dust cloud.
