Photographer's Note

This may very well be my favourite picture from my journey to Java and Bali last year (2007). It was taken at sunrise, standing on the central caldera of Mt Bromo.
Even though I usually go through great ordeal to avoid having people (or should I say, tourists?) in my pictures, I must say that I'm really happy that lonesome photographer came walking along just when I wanted to make that one "perfect shot". I do feel he brings a lot of depth to the picture, not only from a strictly photographic POV, but also as a subject. Thanks to him, the picture really makes you feel quite small as a human being, compared to so much natural beauty. And of course, having this one tiny person walking up the sunlit mountain adds a high sense of drama (hence the title "solitude"), even though in reality there were probably standing 3 busloads full of Japanese right behind me...
