About the Image(s)

On June 30, 2023 I travel 5 hours by car to Mount Papandayan, Garut, West Java. Hiking for 2 hours from car park to reach this place, it’s call Ghober Hoet Camping ground. Located at 2.650 meter from sea level. I camp one night in this location. This was when dawn and we were waiting for sun rise. Foreground was dark, I used flashlight to beam a tend and fences that I use as foreground. Fences was to keep visitor safe.
Editing : using ACR in PS2023. I edit exposure, color, clarity, contrast, reduce noise.

Looks like an incredible and peaceful view of the upcoming sunrise amongst the mysterious fog/clouds. Somehow, I'd like to see more ground detail of the foreground left and front of the tent, but I suppose it was difficult to illuminate with flashlight. Looks like quite an adventure and something I'd love to do, Arief.   Posted: 09/11/2023 06:45:31

Hi Carl, within 12 second it's difficult. I must choose the area that should be lighted. Thank you for your comment.   Posted: 09/14/2023 08:11:05

It must have been such a wonderful experience to wake up to the sunrise and the fog. Beautiful photo and I like how the red tent just pops out.   Posted: 09/23/2023 15:48:34

Lovely view Arief. As a photo the red tent competes a bit with the lovely sky for attention. One can attempt to make the reds of the tent a bit less intense (maybe) . That will move the balance more towards the lovely view
