Guilin Fisherman - Golden hour

I've posted several images of the fisherman already but each one is unique in its own way. The cormorant fisherman fished all day long to feed their families for many centuries. Nowadays it's not profitable anymore and they earn some extra money by attracting tourists in the Guilin / Yangshuo area for photoshoots and so on. It was a once in a lifetime experience.

Have a good start into the week everybody!

Love those pics!

Tegalalang Rice Terrace

I took this shot on famous Tegalalang Rice Terrace on Bali. The Rice Terrace is located just outside of Ubud and is very popular by tourists as well as by locals. This image was taken while walking through the Rice Terrace and shows the small restaurants on the top at the main road from where you got the perfect view of the Terrace.



been there too. lots of people but indeed some great views


definitely. I try to avoid Bali nowadays as it is really getting to busy


I am glad to see you participating with this wonderful image. Have a great day. Tomas


thanks Tomas. I got the feeling I need to travel again, I´m running out of good photos :)

"Elephant Falls, Vietnam"

If you stand on top of the fall you can see rocks covered in green that look like elephants from the the back.

According to the legend, a young couple fled from their families who were punishing the young lovers for being together with a member of a hostile tribe. Both of them abandoned their roots to be with each other. Hoping no one would find them, they went into the jungle. Due to sickness, the guy had to return and get medicine ... I forgot the rest of the tale. It didn't end well for them.

I found this though:

"According to K’ho legend, the forested area was once the home of a girl whose father was a tribal chief. She died on the mountainside upon hearing that her boyfriend had been killed in a battlefield; but before her death, she sang. Her voice echoed throughout the mountains and moved the animals. The girl then turned into a cascade and a herd of elephants, bewitched by her singing, were compelled to stay in the waterfall forever.

Even today, the area retains a wild and mystical feeling."



Wow. You are going to win this.


Nope ;) But thanks for the support ;) Maybe next time


An incredible place. Breathtaking

This is the magnificent building of Baiturrahman Grand Mosque which I capture at the golden hour in Banda Aceh, Aceh province, Indonesia.

The photo of this mosque I shoot silhouette to show the beautiful and colorful twilight decorate the sky above the mosque building which is a religious tourism object in Aceh.

In addition to the beautiful twilight, on the silhouette of this mosque building also looks a unique architectural form with a number of domes on it.

The photo was captured when the crew was setting up the air balloon. At that moment, my feeling was the mixture of excitement and anxiety. I am excited because it was my first time to fly while anxious about the safety.


Looks like so much fun!

This is the charm of Lhoknga beach at sunset. This beach has always been my choice to spend time with my friends at sunset. The beach is also very popular in Indonesia (asia). My photo is one of the most crowded places visited by visitors because it has a very interesting natural charm.


Calming and beautiful!

Baiturrahman Mosque is a mosque pride of the people of Aceh, this mosque was built during the sultanate aceh, and this mosque became the main destination of local and foreign tourists when visiting Aceh.

What an amazing image!

There are a lot of Casinos in Japan. These are slot machine found in the first one I saw in Osaka. I did not understand the game and people were aloud to smoke inside so I did not stay long. I still remember the noise and smolder more than 2 1/2 years later.


Beach in Ko Lipe, Thailand

Ko Lipe island in Southern Thailand is famed for its beautiful white beaches, but my highlight was below the surface where colourful fish and corals are waiting to be discovered by snorkellers.

After some heavy rains in Bali’s wet season, we ventured to the northern part of the Indonesian island. Sekumpul Waterfall is a must see, if you enjoy nature, hiking and picturesque dreamy landscapes! The local people are generous, the fruits are delicious and the mountainous terrain spectacular!


amazing waterfall. been to bali so often but never seen this one.

In the old Dhaka, you can stand right on the edge of the Buriganga river and watch the small man powered boats carrying people from on side to the other.

The traffic is quite busy and the waters are share between these small wooden boats and huge freight boats.

Extraordinary beauty to be enjoyed and do not forget to always be grateful to the creator of the universe.


This is my entry for this week. I had visite few days ago in kashmir taobatt valley.
Taobat is a village in Athmuqam Tehsil in Neelam Valley, Azad Kashmir, Pakistan. It is located 200 kilometers (120 mi) from Muzaffarabad and 39 kilometers (24 mi) from Kel. It is the last station in Neelam valley. It is also the nearest location from where Kishenganga River enters Pakistani territory and becomes River Neelum.
See in large view.

Capadocia has an incredible landscape, and ballooning is one of the most famous activities there. And it´s easy to understand why: it's the best way to admire the view and the strange geological formations. This photo was taken during a balloon ride near Nevsehir, Turkey.


Fisherman activity checking and collecting his net after fishing. The people who still maintain the sea and also still use the way of trawling fish trawling in stocking on the coast. This activity is routinely done every day with the help of more than 10 people.

The Chinese Great Wall is an important monument not only for China, but for mankind. In this photo I show a segment of the wall near Beijing. It was pack with many tourist, as it can be seen in the image. All the way up of the climbing steeps were many tourists. I can say that it was a quite interesting experience to walk along the wall.

Took this picture last year November during Korean Thanksgiving in Seoul, South-Korea. Both girls wear traditional Hanbok dresses if you wear them you get free entrance at the temples and palace.
Picture was taken with Canon 1100D camera.
