This cool cave in Indonesia was one of the highlights of my trip. It was about an hour ride on motorbike up to a small town on the coast. The road was undergoing some construction so it was really rough. I almost laid the bike down in some loose gravel! Fortunately I was going slow. Once at the village, I walked down to the shore and found a guy who was willing to take me to the cave. As soon as I got on the boat, about 20 kids all jumped on for the ride! The kids kept me good company on the way there. Once in the cave, I jumped in for a refreshing swim. When you swim under the back part, it opens up into another large chamber where you can climb the wall and jump off. Tons of fun! But then the light started getting good, so I got out and took a few photos. It wasn't until I processed this one that I could see all the silt I stirred up in the water when I got out. It probably would have taken awhile for it to settle back out. The tide had gone out by the time I exited, and I had to walk a good ways through the water to get to the boat. The kids were having fun swimming and goofing off. Experiences like these make me appreciate the simple things in life!

We didn't know if we were going to get Milky Way this evening, as the skies were totally clouded in. Regardless, we went out to one of our favorite hoodoos to take some blue hour shots. With the fast moving clouds, a long exposure seemed the best choice. It wasn't long before all the clouds were gone and we had beautiful clear skies.

This last week of nothing but blue skies really has me missing our summer storms. Here's a shot from the Grand Canyon. It wasn't long after I took this shot that the rain started falling in earnest. If you haven't yet read my tips on photographing lightning, check them out here:

I don't normally take a lot of people portraits, but when I travel to exotic lands I really enjoy photographing their unique culture. So I put a few of my shots together in a little video. We met some of the nicest people in Indonesia that would go far out of their way to help us. For example, we got a flat on our motorbike and within a minute of stopping on the side of the road, a couple people came over to look at it. One guy beckoned to us to follow him and we walked back to the nearest village and down to the house of one of his friends. His friend came out and fixed our tire and we were back on the road again. I could relate story after story like that. Hope you enjoy....
