Good Morning from Selong Blanak (Lombok ep1.2)

After Mawun, we headed to the Selong Blanak beach. Its close from Mawun, only about 20 mins. The shape is almost same with Mawun but is bigger bay with tiny hills and lived by some fishermans

This time I have a new lens EF 10-22 that I bought from my friend Shinta. The lens is very wide so now I can be more flexible to positioning the object. Its a perfect lens for landscape photography. Not only the lens, I just bought the new filter color combo from Shingray and the result is amazing.

I'm very amazed with this beach and also the peoples, there are warm and nice. I took some times to talk with them when they offload their catches from the boat. The fisherman usually start sail at the afternoon and comeback around 10AM.

with the catches
This day is just a beginning from our adventure, and we are lucky to have Wandi who has experience with this island as a guide, so I just need to sit and drive to explore the north beach. Its a good place to watch the sunset actually, so we plan to comeback tomorrow to watch the sunset show.

Amazing Mawun (Lombok ep1.1)

This story telling my trip to Lombok, its my third times to visit Lombok actually but the first time to explore. After done with business things at 4AM on Monday, we headed to Mawun beach for sunrise, the amazing beach that known only by few travellers.
We got a little bit lost in the city, but then we can find the road to the north which its same way to the airport.
The sun has some half rised when we arrive at the Mawun area, suddenly I felt this beach is different.., Its like a fairyland!

Why should I..

Not wasting the time, we took our bag and tripod and go to the pendopo in front of the beach. Its a little bit rain at that time, I took quiet some times there as its a very best moment for me to feel the serenity companied by coffee and cigarettes :)

After the rain gone, the sun fully shining on beach, makes a warm reflection on the water. The beach shape is like the tiny bay which lined by two tiny hills on the edge. The water are shallow, green and very clear. A sexy lonely beach that I ever visit.
