Balinese Sunsets

After a day of adventuring with PJ, we went our separate ways for the evening. I ended up meeting up with some other people from couchsurfing to watch the sunset. I have always loved watching the sunset, and the Balinese sunsets were amazing. So amazing in fact that this whole post is just pictures of the sunsets over several days.

Okay, this is a little before sunset, but I really liked this picture.

As the sun set there were tons of people trying to capture that perfect picture.

The fact that it was low tide gave some really amazing views.

I watched one sunset with some new friends from couchsurfing at a restaurant on the beach.

After the sun set was when the colors started to pop.

Sometimes you couldn’t tell where the beach ended and the sea began.

After the sun’s colors disappeared the restaurant’s colors took front stage.

Other days it was all about the kids having fun in the water.

I couldn’t count the number of people on the beach to watch the sunset each night.

But it’s easy to understand why there were always so many people.

I even took some panorama shots, not sure how they’ll turn out on the website since they had to be resized.

There was a live band playing while I watched the sunset, a very loud band.

Even as loud as they were, they couldn’t ruin the view.

Petulu Heron
The Herons of Petulu
After checking in to my guesthouse and having a relaxing afternoon it was time for Petulu. I met up with my friend from Nepal, Georgina, and some people from couchsurfing and we got ready to head to Petulu. After getting a flat tire fixed on my motorbike we were off. Petulu is famous for the herons that come to nest in the trees every night. The herons of Petulu number in the hundreds, even thousands, and there are several different species. Arriving in the evening, before sunset, we were greeted by countless herons in settling in for a night in the trees. I don't think I've ever seen so many herons in one place.   ISO 800  f/5.6 ...
Bali by PJ
After my camera went swimming I was unable to take pictures for the rest of my time in the Philippines. I ended up spending almost a week in Manila (unplanned) in order to figure out a new camera. As I hee'd and haw'd over what to do I finally came to a decision the day before I left for Indonesia. I purchased a Canon 80D, a downgrade from the camera I had lost but a newly released camera nonetheless. And so, I present to you the first post with pictures from my new camera.   ISO 100  f/10  1/60 I was unsure of where to stay in Bali, so I ended up seeking a local's advice through Couchsurfing.

Pura Tirta Empul
Pura Tirta Empul
The next morning four of us met up with the intention of heading to Pura Tirta Empul. This is a Hindu Balinese water temple located about 40-60 minutes (depending on traffic) from the town of Ubud. We hopped on our motorbikes and started the 15 km trip to the temple. Upon arriving we paid the parking and entrance fee and received our sarongs. We walked into the temple and got ready to get into the water. It turns out the sarongs we received for free were not to enter the water. So we had to pay to rent sarongs that were allowed in. Not knowing what we were meant to do, we asked a local and he asked us which ceremony we wanted to do, the simpl ...
