Travel photograph – scenery from the airplane

These photographs were taken during my flight from Jakarta to Seoul. A long flight can make you bored especially when you have nothing to do. You just sit on your seat for several hours without much activities you can do. Enjoying the scenery out side is one think I do. Some times the scenery out there away above the ground are very beautiful, the cloud, the color of the sky, etc. That is why I usually choose a window seat. I took photos whenever possible using my cell phone camera.

We boarded the aircraft early in the morning, I managed to capture the morning sky

When cruising high I saw very nice white clouds below with a very beautiful blue background just perfect to photograph

When we arrived at Incheon International airport it was already dark, but from above we still could see the nice bright color of the sunset in the horison

Jam Gadang di Bukit Tinggi, the Big Ben of Indonesia

Do you know how many Big Ben are there in the world? I have visited only two, one is in London, England I visited many years ago, the other one is in Bukit Tinggi Indonesia, I visited just recently. The one in Bukit Tinggi was built by the Dutch government almost 100 years ago. As far as I know, there are only two of this kind in the world, one in London and one in Bukit Tinggi. Both Big Ben in London and jam Gadang in Bukit Tinggi are still functioning well despite of their very old age.

Every tourist, domestic or foreign when they come to Bukit Tinggi, Jam Gadang is the one they most visit. It is the icon of the city and one that Indonesia is very proud of.

One unique thing about this Jam Gadang is the numbers in the watch, they  are written in Roman numerals, yet the number 4, it is not written IV but IIII. It is unusual but it is unique.

Berkunjung ke Villa Kayu Putih di Alahan Panjang Sumatera Barat

Pada saat business travel ke Muara Laboh dan mau ke Bukit Tinggi saya sempat mampir ke sebuah Villa baru di daerah Alahan Panjang dekat danau kembar. Kalau dari arah Padang dan sudah sampai di danau kembar ada jalan kecil ke kiri melewati perkampungan terus menanjak masuk ke dalam.

Villa ini dinamakan Villa Kayu Putih karena di sekeliling villa ini ditanam banyak pohon kayu putih, bahan minyak kayu putih. Dari kejauhan pohon-pohon ini terlihat seperti pohon cemara karena bentuk tajuknya yang meruncing.

Villa ini terletakdi ketinggian 1600 meter di atas permukaan laut, jadi terasa banget sejuknya. Apalagi ketika sore berkabut suhunya bias membuat tubuh ini menggigil kedinginan. Villa nya sangat bersih, luas dan bagus, sangat cocok untuk liburan keluarga besar. Bangunan villa terbuat dari kayu dengan dinding yang didominasi jendela kaca, sangat menarik. Ada halaman yang bias dipakai untuk aktivitas outdoor keluarga.

Saya tidak menginap di sini, hanya berkunjung saja, kebetulan bos di kantor dan keluarganya sedang menginap di sini.

Travel photography – Scenery taken from offshore

When your are offshore, either at sea of lake, try to photograph the land from offshore. I love to have water as the foreground, the land as the subject and the sky above as the third part of the phothograph from offshore. I took these photos while traveling by boat.

A Seahorse ?

I took this photo in late August 2019. I just took the shot without knowing what it is. I just realized it today when I opened my photo files. The old wood on top, it looks like a Seahorse, a big one obviously. Now I understand why it is put there by the beach.
