    Bali in Infrared ~ [limwhow ● SereneXMM]

    Bali


    in Infrared

    9 Sep - 13 Sep 2010


    It has been an exhilarating period for both myself and SereneXMM.
    Because we have had the great opportunity to meet up with lots of passionate shooters.
    And also we have had the honour of travelling with these wonderful people.

    We haven't too many IR shots of Bali.
    Well, at least not as many as we'd love to have because it rained quite a bit while we were there.

    We have a travelogue thread posted in the Landscape section of this forum.
    It can be found here:

    This is one of our first destinations upon arrival in Bali and dumping our luggage in the hotel.
    Uluwatu is a beautiful Hindu Temple at the southern-most tip of the Bali island.
    Magnificent beyond words, is its location.
    Here SereneXMM has an IR shot of this view from its Western end.

    Another IR shot by SereneXMM.
    An interesting shot as we walked down the path of Uluwatu to reach the cliff.

    Here is my share of the IR shots for Uluwatu.
    Just anyhow shoot using the Fish eye.
    Please forgive me for the lack in composition, for I am terribly afraid of heights.
    And looking down from this cliff gives me the trembles...

    After Uluwatu, we went to Kedonganan Beach for supposedly sunset shoot and dinner.
    But heck it was stormy weather and low dark clouds.
    SereneXMM says: "I remember here we both limwhow and me we used very high ISO because it was so dark. I think dark scene IR also has its special."

    There were plenty of jukungs at Kedonganan.
    We were supposed to be able to shoot them at work.
    But these sampan-like boats (jukung) were simply lying around on the sand.
    There were a few in the waters, but the fishermen won't at work there.
    They were all on the beach sorting out their fishes.

    GERTA GOSA

    Day 2
    This is a shot by SereneXMM.
    Outside Gerta Gosa, all of us just lean low to shoot at the Central Hindu Gods Statue and then the horse cart came along.

    We entered Gerta Gosa through the Candi Bentar - the Split Gate - symbolising splitting and leaving all worldly things behind.

    This is the inner Courtyard inside the Gerta Gosa. It is very cute because the grass and the stone makes into a checkered pattern.

    KUSAMBA BEACH


    This is also on Day 2.
    Early morning we drove northwards to this interesting beach.
    A shot by SereneXMM.
    She says: "Sorry... shoot until don't know how to shoot already. This one I also anyhow put in and very pai seh."

    Another post on Gerta Gosa by myself.
    Same scene as SereneXMM's inner courtyard. Just that mine is Hoya R72 whilst hers is the ELP.

    Here, the very lovely young Balinese lady allowed us to quietly shoot her from the side while she prayed.
    It was really our honour.
    The kori agung within the inner courtyard of Gerta Gosa.

    The same kori agung. Just that this time I pretended to be the devout Balinese girl and walked underneath the gate.
    I looked up and wow... saw the yellow umbrella...

    Just outside the Museum in Gerta Gosa, I came upon this very beautiful wall carving of Kala.

    My shot of the Kori Agung in the inner courtyard from a distance.
    This is the one where that Balinese girl prayed.

    Hmm... I seem to be jumping back to Kusamba beach again.
    Pardon the haphazzardness.
    Here is a shot of the Jukung at Kusamba.

    On this second day of our trip to Bali, we found ourselves here on Kusamba Beach.
    Walked a little distance away from the crowd of people and saw this abandoned jukung looking so forlorn at one corner...

    OK, I think we are done for Kusamba.
    Let's go back to Gerta Gosa.
    Here a shot of the Floating Pavilion.

    These are some of the many scenes in Bali which captured my eyes and my heart.
    Bali is such a heavily Javanese-Hindu flavoured land.
    Standing in any of her Temples, any of her Ancient Court, or even in any of the local Balinese's home,
    I feel as though I am transformed into a Land of Old.
    It is really that marvellous.

    Bukit Jambul

    It was an extremely sunny and hot late morning as we walked stepped out of the vehicle into the grounds of Bukit Jambul.
    Bukit Jambul - the Flower Terrace, is a terraced hill where the farmers planted flowers.
    Actually it was an IR nightmare to shoot Bukit Jambul.
    What usually appeared colourful with rows of flowers, now appeared as one whole sheet of white... keke...
    Here we find something more intriguing at the entrance to Bukit Jambul.

    Tegalallang

    Day three. Woke up early in the morning and headed straight for this beautiful rice terrace in a place called Tegalallang.
    Have seen some rice terraces. But this one, in my humble opinion, is the nicest I have seen, with its surrounding foliage.
    Just a record shot to remember it by.

    On our way to the Water temple - Tirta Empul, we stopped by the road side to shoot some cute children.
    Little did I know that I would shoot two sweet, young, lovely Ang Moh girls on a convertable.
    They just zoomed past me.... wah... carefree!

    Sigh... due to the rain at Tirta Empul, we had hardly any IR shots there.
    Otherwise it would have been a great location for IR.
    So fast forward to Day 3 evening.
    We ended up at Tanah Lot just nice.
    In time for sunset.
    Here goes.

    Rendered in Tritone. And Hue and Saturation added in after Tritonisation.

    This is the same shot as Limwhow's. Just that I focused on the shooters instead.

    On day 4, we travelled all the way to the western part of Bali to Palasari, where the Catholic Church was, and also to Ekasari, which the Hindu village in which our driver Komang lives.
    Here is a pallingih, shrine at the backyard of his home.

    Of course, Day 4 the highlight was to this Palasari Catholic Church.
    It was a gloomy sky that met us there, for it rained most of the way to Palasari.
    So I thought I'd just render the picture wintery... just to suit the mood.

    Day 5!
    We are at Sanur Swastika Bungalows...
    After breakfast we walked along the main thoroughfare of Sanur and turned left into a small lane which led to the seaside...

    Back to basic IR leaves, trees, palm and general foliage.
    On our walk along Sanur walking to the Seaside...
