Pacu Jawi
The traditional cattle races in the West Sumatra district of Tanah Datar are held most saturdays and is a tradition dating back 100’s of years. This is a must see for guests visiting the island of Sumatra. Best access is flying in through Padang and taking a rental two hours up through Padang Panjang and into the Tanah Datar district.

Pacu Jawi West Sumatra
http://www.brucelevick.com/pacu-jawi-west-sumatra/
The tradition of Ox Racing on the island of Sumatra has become a very popular event to see and photograph. I have been trying to fit this in my schedule a few years now.

I thought it was about time now that I had the 70-200mm F4 for the Sony a6000. With the high speed capture and the sharpness of the amazing 70-200mm it was a match made in heaven and captured some amazing shots frozen in time.

Mount Merapai and Bukit Tinggi
http://www.brucelevick.com/mount-merapai-bukit-tinggi/
One of my favourite features of the DJI Mavic Pro is the ability to switch the camera to portrait mode and capture in RAW bracketed photos to process and turn out images such as this one looking over the valley of Bukit Tinggi in West Sumatra.

Another Elephant Death in Gunung Leuser National Park
http://elephantsofsumatra.com/another-elephant-death-gunung-leuser-national-park/
Another elephant death has been reported in the Gunung Leuser National Park in North Sumatra. This elephant is a female estimated to be 10 years old and was found on a river bank inside a palm oil plantation by a plantation worker and only 500m from the nearest houses of Barak Gajah Village. Witnesses reported seeing a baby elephant trying for 1 hour to wake (assuming) it’s mother by pushing her body and spraying water on her. When the local villagers approached the baby moved off into the forest and it was reported by the national park team after a 6 hour search the baby had fortunately found it’s way back to the herd and had moved back into the Gunung Leuser National Park. Unfortunately there is no information as to the estimated age of the baby elephant and whether he/she still requires milk from it’s now deceased mother.

The body of the elephant has now been moved and examined for any cause of death. While there are some wounds that have been found on the body nothing as significant enough to cause death. An autopsy has been performed and the vet teams await the results to determine if the death was natural or the elephant was poisoned, which is unfortunately often the case for elephants that enter palm oil plantations. Especially a young elephant of 10 years you would not expect to die suddenly like in this situation. Another sad day for the Elephants of Sumatra.
