Coastline Course

Nirwana Bali Golf Club, from the upper view point at Tanah Lot on Bali's west shore.  It's a very enticing course, but unfortunately I didn't get a chance to play it... this time.  :)

Around the Fire

Having some laughs around a bonfire with some fellow travelers.  This photo was taken on a small island between Lombok and Komodo Islands in Indonesia.

-- The Dragons --

A couple photos of Komodo Dragons on Rinca Island, Indonesia.

These guys have no natural predators, and it shows in their walk.  In the last couple years, the dragons on this island have claimed the lives of one tourist and one park ranger!  They are majestic creatures to watch.

-- The Introvert --

One of many friends I made on the Komodo liveaboard trip.  

This guy was sitting alone with his twig while a bunch of others were chasing each other around the buildings.  I can only imagine he must have been day dreaming about something marvelous.

This is my first post on here after a long hiatus.  I finally have a few photos of my travels processed, so I'll start posting more regularly. 

This is a sunset from an island in the Flores sea, just east of Lombok, Indonesia.  It was the first day of a 5 day live-aboard boat trip to Komodo Island to see the Komodo Dragons.  It was an awesome trip, and this was an awesome first night!

Thailand, Vietnam, Borneo, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos, .... for the foreseeable future.
Then Europe once I'm ready to leave Asia.
Hopefully there will be plenty of photos to follow...

Anyone into time-lapse photography:   You might want to check out the Radian.  Extremely elegant, portable, and affordable motorized pan mount! 

I seriously wish it wasn't on back order, as I would love to take one with me on my adventures through Asia.   I even tried to buy one on ebay, but that didn't go over so well.   Looks like my time-lapses will be still until fall at least (when the next batch is estimated to come out). 

Anyway, it's great to see initiatives that transform exceedingly expensive and bulky photography equipment into refined consumer focused products like this!

Burney Falls
Here are a few photos from Burney Falls, one of the amazing locations we found up in Northern California this weekend.   We easily could have spent a couple of days here alone -- it's an extraordinary spot!
