Skywatch: Above The Clouds of Bromo
Being located in the path of The Ring of Fire, Indonesia has a lot of active and dormant volcanoes. Although they can become a source of disastrous volcanic eruptions and earthquakes, many of these mountains are also stunningly beautiful, like this Mount Bromo in East Java.
My family and I went there sometime ago. This is one of the photos I took there. The mountain protruding from the clouds in the foreground is Gunung Batok (lit. "coconut shell mountain," named so because of its shape and color) and the white fumes at the background are the crater steam (?) emanating from Mt. Bromo.
It's Friday, time for photobloggers from around the world who are participating in The Skywatch Friday meme to show the photos of their skies. Please visit their blogs and check out what they have.
