Horseshoe Log

This was the first photo trip that I had 2 friends came with me. Lim Theamhoel, a talented landscape photographer, flew over from Malaysia just for this photo shoot. Bob Berge came from Australia also joined us as a documentary photographer. We have had a wonderful time hiking in the dark, shooting sunsets and sunrises, swimming in the most exotic and seclusive beaches, tasted delicious specialty seafood, telling jokes, life stories, sharing experiences and photography techniques.
