Sado Island, Japan

One of the more remote places here is this small island on Japans's west coast. During Edo time, the shogunate used to ban people who fall from grace so there are still some interesting places to visit. However the most stunning part is it's nature, empty beaches with clear water, fresh sea food and the quietness especially on the western side of the island. Some off-the-beaten track destination.


Tremendous image! You just gotta love that red color!

Difficile de parler de l'Asie sans évoquer la culture du riz. Omniprésente dans tout le continent, elle nous apporte des paysages étonnants et des scènes de travail souvent touchantes. Celle-ci vient de l'intérieur de l'île de Bali.It's hard to talk about Asia without mentioning rice growing. Omnipresent throughout the continent, it brings us amazing landscapes and work scenes often touching. This one comes from inside the island of Bali.

Yep, the sign of Asia:).... those rice fields are incredible!


Yes they are. I can't imagine the work to build its...

Many thanks for your comment! :D
Hope to enter to more your contest :)

Every once in a while it always good to see things from different perspective :)


I took this aerial picture when i was on my way trekking down the hill to get to Seganing waterfall , in Indonesia. Its a beautiful waterfall, located next to the ocean. From above it looks like a little jacuzzi in a turquoise colored water. Its a totally a hidden gem in a paradise, as not many tourist come here yet, considering the rough treks.

Hope you guys enjoy this picture :)


You just gotta love that crystal clear water! Wonderful.


Going to the beach is an old story never missed by the people of Aceh before the month of Ramadan. They often call it last week. Aceh people who go to this beach in addition to bathing activities in the sea are also often to eat together, because tomorrow in the month of fasting should no longer eat there morning-afternoon and evening. This last week I recorded on the beach of Gampong Jawa Banda Aceh.


What an incredible image and story behind it! Love it!

Aceh, the westernmost part of Sumatra island, holds a myriad of beautiful natural beauty charms.
Like Banda Aceh which is the capital of Aceh with Baiturrahman Great Mosque as city icon.
On this occasion I will share a little story about the activities of Traditional Fishermen in the coastal city of Banda Aceh.
Namely, Kampung Jawa is named.
Located in the western part of the city of Banda Aceh or 15 minutes less than the city center.
Yes, here we will find various activities of coastal communities of Banda Aceh.
Starting from fishing, relaxing with family and even Fisherman Activities when catching fish in the sea using trawl (nets).
Here the sunset is a sight that is always served for the visitors.

Hello Steemian's

This shot i took at Koh Similan's Marine National Park. Its group of 8 islands and and my picture its from biggest one call Similan Island. View point its on the highest hill and it will take about 20-30 minutes to get there ( up to your physical condition). The sea here is very clear with visibility about 35 meters. If you will be enough lucky you can meet here Caretta turtles or massive Whale sharks.

Extremely diverse. Overflowing with history. The historic city of Jeruzalem is a world on its own, with such great religious diversity. It is home to Arabs and Jews, Israelis and Palestinians, monks and rabbis, but also everything in between. Go and visit the Temple Mount complex, which has both the Dome of the Rock and the golden beautiful Al-Aqsa Mosque, holy to Islam.

Considered to be the largest living museum of the Miao minority ethnic culture, Xijiang Qianhu Miao Village is located in Guizhou province in Southwest China. The locals have been living for centuries in these traditional wooden houses on the slopes of hills. Look at how people's residences blend with the natural settings in such perfect harmony!

This is the wonderful of color at dusk at Lhoknga beach, Aceh Besar district, Aceh province, Indonesia. This beach is the most popular tourist attractions in Aceh, tourists from various regions including foreign tourists also visit this beach because here is the perfect place to see the sunset and enjoy the atmosphere of dusk.

However, to be able to see the colored sky like this is a moment, because not every dusk at Lhoknga beach is colorful and beautiful, especially during overcast weather conditions.

During national day in Bangladesh, everyone is putting a flag out of his windows, car or else.
you can easily find a flag anywhere on the streets from any mama (polite way to call someone) who are adding colours to the country with all these flags.

On Monkey Beach in Penang, Malaysia I had one of my best couchsurfing experiences: I couchsurfed with a Malaysian guy who lives in a tent on the beach and runs a small beach bar where he sells coconuts and beer.

Hi. This is my entry for this contest.
The Dragon Bridge
This is the Dragon Bridge in Da Nang city, Vietnam. It is the symbol for the dream to become a Dragon city of Danang, also become the new Dragon in Asia of my country, Vietnam. Danang is the most beautiful city, the most worthy to live in Vietnam. This Dragon can spray fire or water through his mouth. It will create the spectacular view for the tourists. This photo was taken by long exposure, created the reflection in the Han river. We warmly welcome you to the Danang City - the city of the bridges.

Setting : 15 sec at f/12 ISO/100 12.0mm + Gnd "Filter reverse09"

Aceh is one of the provinces in Indonesia. Aceh is also known as a privileged area. Starting from culture, tradition and even tourism. One of the most visited tourist attractions by both local and foreign visitors is the tourist destination of Lhoknga beach. Lhoknga Beach is famous for its big and long waves. Enjoy the natural beauty of the sunset on this beach no doubt. The ocean directly facing the strait of the Indies, a favorite place for the lovers of twilight.

As the sun sets at the west end of your rays you will get used to making the sky redden as if the sky were burning normally. That is the momentum we are waiting for photographing while waiting for the sun at dusk.



Hahahaha haha..... 😂😂😂😂😂
Thank you 👍

Canoeing across Lake Ashi in Japan and came across this bridge and torii gate. Thought the setting was beautiful because it was so isolated in the trees with not much else surrounding it. The red against the green was highly visual.

It shows the gate to the Sun Yat-sen (Zhongshan) Park in Shaoguan. This is the new year decoration of 2007. Esp. in the city center of Shaoguan they put up a lot of colourful decorations for every new year.

Today I am entering to Tomas’s challenge with one of my favorite cities – Dubai. I love the city and my favorite part is Souk Madinat Jumeirah and vicinity. Typical architecture mixed with modern touch. Would love to take a walk there now…

Hey All, I'd like to submit this photo to the Asian-Photocontest.
I took it a few months ago on Koh Phi Phi Lee, the "Beach" Island in the south of Thailand. A beautiful but too well known paradise!
I love the way how those skippers maneuver their long tail boats.
