I only saw a couple of sunsets in Bali, but both were quite spectacular. The added bonus for this one was the fisherman in the water to his thighs, which made for a nice (and local) anchor point for the composition.

Truth be told, it’s hard to find anything authentic in Bali, especially in or around Kuta. The area is so devoted to tourism that it feels like very little remains of what Bali must have been originally. And yet I spotted this rare local fisherman pulling his net in. He was definitely not there for tourists.
Sheep Above Tin Hau

As I was taking my daughter to the schoolbus early one morning, I happened to look up to this amazing mottled sky. As soon as she was in the bus, I ran back home, grabbed my camera and wide angle lens and came back to shoot this.
The Sea in Napier

Truth is, we got lousy weather in Napier. As a consequence, what I was hoping to shoot (the art deco buildings) I didn’t manage to get any good shot out of. But within minutes of arriving, this break in the clouds gave me a minimalist shot I really liked. I rarely post photos of my kids, but here is one!
Andaman Storm Brewing

I spent a few days on an Island near Phuket in Thailand. Unfortunately for us, the generally clement weather was anything but. I made do with what I have though, and this week I will share a few shots I took there, mostly seascapes. Here is probably the most successful, showing the numerous islands peppering the Andaman sea (and the heavy weather).
