Mysteries of Indonesia

Glad you Enjoyed the Newsletter!

We had a huge response to the last free newsletter! It went out on Christmas Eve and was full of cool stuff. You can still get it if you sign up (it’s free). The welcome email has a link to all the newsletters, including the most recent, #20. Looking at the stats, our newsletter is opened up by well over 125% of the people to which it is sent! That means that many people forward to friends and family… that’s great! It’s helped us grow well beyond expectations!

Today, we’re showing a new photo from Indonesia – the unique temple of Borobudur. This was taken prior to sunrise, when a thick layer of damp fog covered the mountain lowlands, where this temple is located outside of Jogjakarta. It was one of those very wet mornings when there is really no appropriate attire. It’s not too cool and not too hot – but just “uncomfortable.” I was listening to my music to make me forget about that nonsense though… it helped quite a bit!

And then, sticking to the theme of this week, I included a whole raft of photos I shot while in Indonesia… it just reminds me of how much I want to go back and explore more of that country!

    These are all wonderful captures Trey – the childen, the people and the sights and sounds – wonderful!

  • Great shots as always Trey. I hope you let everybody know where you plan to go, so next time you visit Indonesia I can meet you in person and maybe talk some business along the way πŸ™‚

  • Z

  • Beautiful and nice point of view!

  • Mike H

    Wow, the best Candi Prambanan picture I ever seen. its amazing.Awesome job Trey, well done !!.
    And yes, you should go back to Indonesia and explore more. Indonesia is a unique country with thousands of differents cultures and ethnicity and way too many beautiful places to visit.

    Jogjakarta (Kraton, Tamansari, Beringharjo market, Malioboro street, Parangtritis beach, Gunungkidul/ wonosari caves, mount. Merapi)

    Bali & Lombok (damn, too man to mention, google it :p, but Kelimutu Lake of Rinjani mount. Lombok is a must!

    Sumatra (Toba Lake, kerinci mountains)

    and many other places πŸ™‚

    Great shots again, Trey! So different from yesterday!

  • Gail in Montana

    Wow, Trey, great photos. I don’t think I have any of these saved on my laptop. Might be one or two on the Dell, but most of these are new to me!! I can’t believe 2010 is almost over. Where did the year go???? Happy week after Christmas, enjoy all your toys ;-). You forgot to tell us what you got, lol. Hope it was lots of camera or computer stuff. Have a great day, all πŸ˜‰

    Trey, As usual, a day behind. I think I now have a new favorite. It was in ayers shots. Bistrot de Lyon. I also remember being there. Is now a new screen saver.

  • I love the fact that you are posting groups of images. Beutiful stuff!

  • Oliver

    The white balance and mix of wonder shine in 742622768_xCd8P-900×900.jpg is just out of this world , SICK

  • Trey – I LOVE it when you include people shots in the midst of all the lovely landscaping. People are what it’s all about anyways πŸ™‚ I also love the clothesline shot – I have a thing for clotheslines in foreign countries and always find they add so much to the scenery!

  • PS – I tweeted this to you as well but just in case you missed it…I’m curious – you always talk about listening to your music while shooting. What kind of music do you listen to? Does it inspire your creativity or is it just an escape method to help you cope with harsh conditions?

  • Thanks all!

    Katie — well, I need to make a more thorough playlist when I get some time — it is on my to-do list! But I have a few songs on –I need to add some of my ambient-electronica to that soon as well! πŸ™‚

  • nice onces …… the heavy distortion of your wide angle lens pics are not my taste …personaly I would prefer panorama-stiching in these cases

    here some not so heavy HDRs from Borobodur

  • Fantastic shots! I love them.

  • Gary A. Miller

    Thanks for the pics. I work in Indonesia and had a great trip to Borobudur last May. I’m new to the site but will enjoy it in the future.

  • Wow that’s weird. I had an almost identical trip to Yogyakarta a few years ago! Stayed at the same hotel pictured in the pool photo, went to Prambanan and Borobodur. My images weren’t as neat as yours but had a great trip regardless πŸ™‚

  • Intan N

    I live in Indonesia and often visit Borobudur Temple but I don’t feel proud or think it awesome. I just feel bored and don’t like living in Indonesia because I’m still school I feel the education system here is very bad. I hate life in here. i wanna moveeeeee πŸ™
