Singapore photographer Justin Ng recently returned from Mount Bromo, an active volcano in Indonesia. This image shows a campfire built by the jockey – the keeper of horses used in the ascent – in order to keep his kids warm.
Justin said he captured the image using a fisheye lens and de-fished it in post-processing.
Date of capture: 23 August 2014
Equipment used: Canon 5D MKII and a 15mm F2.8 fisheye lens
