Impressions of Bali

This year I had the pleasure of visiting Bali, Java and Lombok (Indonesia). When you hear Bali you almost instantly think of beautiful beaches, relaxed shores and really great landscapes... let me tell you: yeah, it´s true! :-)
I experienced Bali as a fantastic island full of very friendly people and astonishing images. The beaches were truly fantastic and if you go a bit away from the touristic centers of Denpasar... you will find magic places! It really depends on you... take a car (or motorcycle) and drive around a bit.
Java, the island to the left of Bali is completely different... the landscapes are rougher and you´ll find many vulcanoes worth visiting. But don´t make the mistake to underestimate the distances: travelling trough the places takes a very looooong time! What seems just to be a 5 hours trip on Google Maps turns out to be at least 24 hours because of the traffic jams.
Lombok (on the right side of Bali) is, and almost all people say this, what Bali used to be 20 years ago: untouched nature and few touristic centers. I will write a detailed report about this trip in the next weeks. For now I have a bit of images I took there. Still have to work myself through more than 4.000 images, though...

Autumn: beautiful light and colours

One of my favourite seasons of the year is autumn! Due to the position of the planet during this time of the year you get to get a very peculiar and special light (speaking about Europe here). The bright and diverse colours of the nature with the leaves falling down are perfect for getting this warm feeling that is so typical for the autumn.
Get out with your cam and walk through the park... you will see great details everywhere. I did it some days ago and here is what I found:
