Painted park

A heavy mist rolls over Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park in East Java, Indonesia, temporarily turning the park into something more closely resembling a watercolor painting. Mount Semeru, the peak that gives the park a portion of its name, is the highest in Java at more than 12,000 feet. Bromo is in reference to Mount Bromo, the most popular mountain in the region, and the Tengger people who live there.
