Billowing brilliant red smoke over the blanched plain is the only sign of life in this otherworldly landscape. Mount Bromo, on the Indonesian island of East Java, is such an extraordinary site thousands of tourists visit every year to enjoy breathtaking vistas across the Tengger massif to the misty peaks beyond. Photographer Helminadia Jabur, 36, said: ‘The volcano is noted for its spectacular sunrises, and majestic views all the way to Semeru volcano which is located further behind it. Ever since I saw some images of the volcano, I just could not help myself to visit the area and capture it’. The area was made a national park in 1919 and many tourists now take the traditional 45 minute walk up the volcano – or use the more modern method of a jeep to tour the area.
