A caption of the traditional Ramayana Dance. Beautiful costumes, drama story, a very typical folk Balinese dance. Performance held in the Ubud Palace, Bali, Indonesia.
Ramayana Dancer caught looking at my camera, during the show at the Ubud Palace, Bali, Indonesia.
Long exposure of this beautiful water temple. Built in 1663 Pura Bratan is dedicated to the water, lake and river goddess Dewi Danu, very important for the fertility of the area. Located at 1200 m above sea level, the area has a nice cool feeling, a nice change from the otherwise hot tropical climate. If you are not bothered from the gazillion of tourists that surround the area, you can find the opportunity for great photos. As a first time visitor in this country, the architecture and artwork leaves me with a wide open mouth… Lake Beratan, Bali, Indonesia. What I like in this photo: frozen water look, mountain mist and clouds, perspective of the temple, overcast tones, architecture and location. My long exposure gear: Mefoto Roadtrip tripod, 1000 ND + 8 ND filters Remote Shutter control
Preparation of the chorus, which is the only thing you hear during the show. Kecak Dance has no musical instruments, and no other singing as it happens to the rest of the traditional Balinese Dances. Great sunset view at Uluwatu Temple, Bali, Indonesia.
Famous Balinese Dance traditionally performed at the Uluwatu Temple, next to the steep south coast cliffs. The sunset gives an extra touch to the already unique dance and chorus open space performance. The location attracts thousands of people, a must-see show if you ever travel at this side of the world. Uluwatu, Bali, Indonesia.
