“The World in HDR” sold out on Amazon, and The Temple Deep in the Caves

Book Sellouts on Amazon and in bookstores around the world!

A World in HDR” is almost impossible to get!

Wow! You guys are awesome – thank you so much. I can’t even believe it… After the book was released, it almost immediately sold out on Amazon in the UK (My UK friends are cuuurazy), then Canada, and now in the USA Amazon store. It’s really crazy to sell out on Amazon – so I hardly have enough words to thank you!

Check some of the other stores on my HDR Book page to see where it is still avail – these sites typically update inventory on an hourly basis.

Sold Out!-3

Daily Photo – The Temple Deep in the Caves

Borneo is known for its amazing limestone caves. Just on the other side, over in West Malaysia, there are a ton of the same strange cave structures that twist and turn in unexpected ways through old mountains. This one is called the Batu Caves, and if you walk through it long enough, you end up in the very center of the mountain, where an opening appears high overhead. Deep in this innermost sanctuary lies this unique Hindu Temple.

Some of you may remember that old woman who has never cut her hair (2nd photo below), walking up the stairs to visit the temple every day. I’ve never posted a photo of her final destination until now.

    Spectacular. Great shot, better location

  • Cool! Congrats on the sell-out on Amazon. Three locations, too – just amazing, in such a short time!

  • I pre-ordered the book months ago, and just got an email that I need to add over 30$ for international shipping over what I’ve already paid. I sadly asked to cancel the pre-order as that shipping price is x6 times what amazon would charge me

  • Wow, how I would like to visit that place!

  • Congrats on the sellout although it isn’t hard to believe. I’ve read just about every HDR book there is and yours is by far the best.

    Awesome photo too!

  • There’s a lots of place good to make HDR in Malaysia..come here again Trey…maybe just the weather here….sometimes always raining

  • whoa! just in time man! πŸ™‚ Purchased yesterday in the morning and it was not yet sold out! Great job, happy for you.. keep up with all this Trey


  • THanks y’all.

    Lior – sorry about that. I take full responsibility… We made a mistake with the international ordering and NO international orders were supposed to get through because PayPal would not charge shipping. Everyone else got charged shipping. We make so little money off each book that it is crazy — and if we give “free shipping”, we lose money on each book. We don’t have what Amazon has, which is warehouses in each country — hope that makes sense.

    Marco – good glad you got in under the wire!

    Momc – yes indeed – I really like KL and the people there!

  • Trey, Congrats on the book. My wife got it for me for Christmas and it has followed me around the house for the past two weeks.
    As for the picture, it looks like something out of Jurassic Park, ha, well sort-of. I cannot even imagine the work that went into building that temple inside of a cave. Really Nice work.

  • Wonderful photos, Trey!!! What a privilege to be able to visit this place!!!! Thanks for sharing your adventures with us. Congratulations on the sales of your book. Amazing how many followers you have, bet you didn’t expect this result. But we who follow you did!!!! WTG πŸ™‚

  • These images are breathtaking. Congrats on the sell of your books.

  • Congratulations !!!

  • Ed

    I was always curious about her final destination, as you so rightly assumed. i didn’t think it would be that though. What a great photo and place. Hope you had your Indy hat on! Congrats on the book too – I still can’t quite make out what you said when you signed it, in Cambodian I think.
    All the best from NY.

  • I can say I am a proud owner of “A World in HDR,” as Borders showed that the only store in my region had one copy. Sad to say, it wasn’t on the shelf. In a worried look, I gathered two employees who scoured nearby shelves trying to find it to no success. Finally, one walked to the back, and halfway through reading Digital SLR magazine, she returned with book in hand! Awesome! Great, great book Trey!

  • Congratulations on selling out hahaha see what I did there? πŸ™‚

    Seriously though, Trey that’s sick.

  • casusan

    Oh wow – cool shot – yes, I always wondered what it was like where she was going! Congratulations on the book!

  • Adam Schmid

    Congrats on the sell out Trey! I finally got a chance to finish the book over the last weekend and I must say it was well worth it. I picked up a lot of new tips and tricks and can’t wait to use them.

    Great photo as well for today. You have definitely been to some unique and interesting places in the world. I would love to be able to travel to just 1/4 of the places you have traveled! Keep up the great work.

  • Tom

    Nice composition and great looking HDR in a place that is notoriously difficult to shoot because of the lighting conditions. Not to spoil the mystique for the other readers, but the rest of the cave that is outside of view of the lens is covered in concrete walkways, railings, trash, and various other man made objects that I feel take away from its beauty. The angle of this shot minimizes man’s presence, and to me that’s the photo’s strength.

  • Thanks all!

    And thanks for trying so hard to get the book – give em heck at your local bookstores! πŸ™‚

  • Yeah the book was sold out in Australia too! might have to wait awhile to get it now – Can’t wait!

  • Ah! My kids have been here! They loved it! Along with Angkor Wat! Wonderful shot and congrats on the sell out!

  • I’ll be in KL in a few weeks so will have to make sure I head out to these caves. I love temples in caves.

  • Your photographs illuminate my imagination. I pray someday I can share and inspire others the way your work has done for me πŸ™‚
    Thanks so much.

  • nice. you must be making a crapload off it. hope u can quit ur job and do HDR full time. lucky bastard! πŸ™‚

  • Erwin Gerung
