Prambanan Sunset

Great time at EG!

I’m having a good time in Monterey at the EG Conference and looking forward to the PhotoWalk on Sunday!

I had breakfast with Freeman Dyson, ended up having several conversations with Neal Stephenson, sat by Alexa Meade, talked about Icelandic horses with Stephen Tobolowsky and his wife, got to speak today between the great Elliot Erwitt and Max Ferguson, talked about the “haters’ with Masie Crow, discussed photography with Chris Rainier, shared adventure stories with Rachael Kinley, and decided to collaborate on something awesome in the future with Masa Kuwamura. Plus, about a dozen other remarkable things that are also worthy of mention! But I am so tired…. need to sleep after the…

Daily Photo – Prambanan Sunset

Sometimes the lighting is best right after the sunset.

And sometimes this is right when the police come to get you. Maybe they were security guards. But it was hard to tell in the dark – and, besides, I didn’t know the difference between the clothes of a security guards and a policeman in Indonesia. I had Will with me when these guys approached us, and he was no help at all. He did manage to keep them busy for a while so I could take some final shots, but we could tell that we had worn out our welcome. So then the guards started to escort us right out of there.

  • Always nice to see your work on my country Trey. I don’t believe they are policemen, I think they were local security guards. Next time take me then 🙂

    Haha nice description! I think it all adds to the excitement/fun of photography, I love getting into trouble! haha.

    This picture reminds me of the scenery in Lord of the Rings! :).

    Beautiful shot Trey – it was worth the trouble! Congrats on the conference – sounds fun!

  • Gail in Montana

    Great photo, thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend 🙂

  • Carmen

    Excellent picture! You made me laugh, I was last summer in Pramabanan and wanted to do exactly the same thing you did (last shots), but some guards also escorted me to the exit. Then I realized that I was outside, with no company and with no taxi waiting for me outside….Then I learned that a woman must not be alone in Yogyakarta, it seems to be a “bad” thing. Greetings!

  • Haha another HDR, another brush with the law – great stuff! Beautiful sunset as well of course 🙂

  • Is it a little foggy? But I love how the fogginess looks in this photo 🙂

  • Photothief…stealing shots while being harrassed by the police/security. haha. Great shot, was definitely worth it!

  • J.L.Nawan

    Beautiful Prambanan. Have you ever see it during the full moon? There is always a Ramayana Dance Performance every full moon. Thanks for sharing the beautiful picture.

    Nice shot Trey – I like both the subtle tones and detail with this one, almost silhouette like! 🙂
    What is it with security guards – I mean, it’s not as though you’re trashing the place… were they offhand due to it being a sacred place or something?

  • Fantastic image! I love thunderstorms, but we get next to none here in Queenstown. Shame about the security, I got told off for being too close to the runway when I scored this shot last year, haha…

  • You are braver than I! But that’s why you get these killer shots, NICE! That sunset was worth it!

  • Really excellent images i have ever seen. Good collections keep it up.

  • You presented some really good specifics there. I did a browse on the niche and found plenty of people might go along through your blog.
