Some interesting tree roots I did some ND filter work on in the midday sun.

Something I have been wanting to photograph for a long time. I am eager to go back after the religious holidays. The Ox Races are a long standing tradition in West Sumatra and a great spectacle to photograph.

Nothing better than blue skies all day. I wish it was like this more often outside of the month of Ramadan and the holidays as I don’t have much opportunity to take photos.

It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.

Tanker crossing the ocean at sunset...

The traditional ox races of West Sumatra.

An afternoon storm approaches the city of Bukit Tinggi as it engulfs the view of Mount Marapi in the distance. The sun makes a last ditch effort to break through the center of the storm directly in front of a magnificent mosque overlooking the valley. A quick afternoon bike ride in the crisp Mount Singgalang air has some nice views and the reward of a drama filled sky.

So simple to just sit and relax and watch the incoming tide and the setting sun on a beautiful afternoon. Nothing beats the simplicity of watching life itself.

I am currently working on updting my workflow to produce more prints of my photogrpahy and hpefully improve the results of my edits. There is some amazing new technology being releaed and it feels as though the software and editing options are gong through somewhat of a revolution with key software dying off and new mobil editing options becoming available. I will have more details once I have settled on a new workflow…

You can walk around and wander into areas and take photos but to really get the photo you want it has to be well planned. Here is photo I took that I planned to take a week earlier when I first visited the location. Scouting out great spots and subjects on this beach there are many trees and logs washed up so I took note and opened my tide times and moon phase apps. I picked my subject, which was this nice tree stump sitting perfectly on the beach then chose the perfect afternoon where the tide was at it’s highest on sunset and it was a new moon phase so if the sunset turned into a nice cloudless evening I could capture some star trails to compose with the setting sun over the ocean and the tide moving around the tree stump. Unfortunately the night sky did not eventuate into any star trails but the setting sun with the high tide and the tree stump really worked out to be a nice composition. I captured this subject from multiple position from golden hour right through to the blue hour and the depth of change in the colours over the period of maybe 45 minutes was spectacular to watch and capture. I almost missed just watching this amazing sunset.

Taking a light plane to the remote Enggano Island. Amazing part of the world.

Sometimes I like to let peoples imaginations complete the picture.

Before I took this picture I took a swim under the falls and felt totally refreshed. I hope you can imagine yourself taking a dip in this natural wonder…

The DJI Mavic Pro is a versatile beast. In one flight I can take amazing aerial footage and then turn the camera into portrait mode to capture amazing crisp and clear panoramic photos. Such a great little tool and yes it is tiny!!! This little drone is definitely a game changer.

I've been chasing waterfalls in remote villages around Central Bengkulu. It's fun getting out into the beautiful locations and experiencing the culture in the small villages. Then to discover the amazing waterfalls that dot the landscape. Wow an amazing place.
