As always for the full image visit my website at the link above. For anyone wanting to use my images please contact me first. Such a beautiful location of a somewhat untouched paradise under a towering waterfall, but surreal in a sense that this little paradise is surrounded by 100's of square kilometers of oil palm plantations. This is a good example of getting lucky but to be honest it is not the best photo I could have captured from this location and I will surely go back on my own time and get the right image.

I love it when the rice fields are in their way to being ready to harvest. In the afternoon light in the midst of the dry season the rice fields are a joy to photograph from the air or the ground.

Early morning landscape hunting while waiting for the Ox Races to start in West Sumatra. A Beautiful part of the world.
The Pacu Jawi or cattle races on the western part of the island of Sumatra sure do attract a crowd and it is interesting to see from above. Flying the drone also attracts attention wth the local kids having a keen interest in the flying camera.

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. VIEW THE FULL SIZE HERE
A 700km drive to the north of the city of Bengkulu lies Bukit Tinggi nestled in the mountains and jungles of west Sumatra. It’s a long and windy beach road but well worth the travel for a time out from south Sumatra. The main form of work here is to grow and harvest rice and vegetables. It’s refreshing to walk the small back roads among the fields to watch the locals and see them ply their trade. The height of the city lends itself to colder temperatures which was a welcome change to the heat of Bengkulu. Looking forward to […]
