I remember my wonderful journey on last September 2013, to South Sulawesi – Indonesia, by seeing Johanna’s photos on her blog last night. She posted awesome photos of clouds on the water. Yeah…the water is such a mirror and we can see the blue sky and white of clouds on it. You can also see her great shot on her blog here.
Her posting about the clouds is also inspiring me to share some captured picture that I have. It also about the water and the shadow on it. Or you may fall in love with the rocks 😉
I was very fascinated by a backwoods located in the mountainous karst area, in South Sulawesi. It was dry season, the rice fields were dried up, and the sun are blazing. But there are still water in the bog, and it also such a mirror. I took the picture with samsung smartphone. It’s not good enough, but not bad too, I think!
Now, let see how my friend (Ayub) has done with his canon D60. I also ask him to take a picture of me. 😀
