Mist over the Valley, by Shirren Lim

Shot this from the Mt Penanjakan viewpoint while visiting Mt Bromo – Semeru National Park in Indonesia. While everyone was trying to take pictures of Mt Bromo, I decided to scout around for other areas of opportunity and spotted this town being covered with traveling mist. It looks so mystical, I had to capture it.

Photographer: Shirren Lim (Jakarta, Indonesia) Registered
Born in Penang Island, Malaysia, in 1970, Shirren would find herself moving cities over the course of her life. She is now based in Jakarta, Indonesia. Shirren took up photography in 2009, as she thought it would be an interesting habit, later she discovered it as her true passion. Shirren loves portraitures best. To her, the expressions people wear are so beautiful, so telling, so uncovered in their sincerity. With her photo-taking, she tries and does justice to capture humanity in its many forms. Shirren’s work has been described as intense and earthy with her simple composition cutting to the heart of the subject matter. As a child, she had flipped through many of her father’s National Geographic magazines, but it was Steve McCurry’s 1984 “Afghan Girl” that she recall two decades later. That is what she wants to do with her life. She believes, someday, she can able to capture that one moment that could change the world. Her work has appeared in several web and printed magazines.

A wonderful picture. Black and white form a strong contrast.
