This week’s sunset (actually, sunrise!) is from Bali, Indonesia!

Some travel photos look wonderful but don’t have a significant story behind them.  I remember once in Peru I took a photo with an elderly lady and her grandson.  They were wearing traditional clothes and we all beamed radiant smiles; however, the photo was fake in the sense it was merely a business transaction where I paid to have a photo taken with them.

Unlike the situation I previously described, this particular sunset photo really means a lot to me.  In order to capture this shot of the silhouette monkey high atop Mount Batur, I woke up at around 2 am in the morning to climb this impressive active volcano.  Doing this physically demanding hike with my father and Audrey made it extra special.  There were moments where we were completely out of breath and the heat and humidity was overwhelming. However, the reward was when we got to the top and experienced these amazing breathtaking views.  It made it all worthwhile and it is a special moment that I’ll never forget.

  1. Thanks Nick and Dariece for sharing this shot! I have to admit it was a lot more work than I’m normally willing to do – in terms of the hike up – to take a photo, so it is one I remember well to this day.
