Getting closer to Gunung Gede

It was not just the grand landscape that was fascinating at Gunung Gede, but where ever we stopped for a break there were plenty of interesting subjects to be photographed. I could easily spend weeks on this mountain just doing macro and intimate landscape photography. Here are a few little details that contributed to the overall beauty and made greater sense.

Gugung = “fire mountains” – I can still smell the sulphur fumes that filled my lungs for the 1st time.
