Gunung Baru does not sleep.

Photo taken from the edge of the crater lake inside Gunung Rinjani. Sadly both the summit of Rinjani and lakeside were technically closed when I visited due to the pictured chap above being a bit too active. Fortunately, and as anyone who knows me can testify too, I've never been one to follow rules anyway and after an aborted attempt to climb the summit (due to inappropriate footwear) I managed to sneak down to the lakeside for a night under the stars in one of the most beautiful and relaxing places I can remember visiting. Also very photogenic so expect to see a few more of this place pop up in future uploads.




This is my first posting since getting back from my 3 1/2 month trip round indo. My first thought was I should post something that is a nice representation of a typical indonesian scene, (namely water+island+boat... have plenty of these!). However though I felt and still suspect my photography greatly improved over the trip I would have to say my confidence in selection and editing of my photos is pretty low at the moment. Hence this one going up first as it's one of the few I'm confident enough with the content and editing right now.


If you would like to critique my photos in any way positive or (perhaps more valueably) negative i would be greatly appreciative as though i'm unlikely to treat your opinions as gospel it will likely help me learn. and please dont be afraid of appearing unnecesarily harsh. (put it in a flickr mail if you want!)
