In June last year my family and I took a holiday to Bali, it was the second time that we had been over there and I was keen to spend a day entirely focused on photography. Thanks to a friend I was put in touch with a tour guide and amateur photographer who would be my guide for the day. I really wanted to get out to the rice terraces for sunrise so a 4:30 am start was in order to find a spot and get the good light! The first location we went to was a bit of a bust – I learnt that the terraces are constantly changing and depending on where they are in the harvest cycle will depend on what you see.
The sun was starting to come up as we drove down to a second location, I was starting to worry that we had missed the best light but Made (Mar-day) my guide was confident. Good thing that he was quick on his feet – I had stopped at one spot that was ‘ok’ and Made had gone ahead, he came back quickly – he had found the best spot! We both settled in this location as the light started to shine into the valley – there was hardly anyone around and I knew then and there that I had the shot.
I must confess that I also sacrificed a good pair of shoes that day – the paths are narrow and I fell into the rice paddy’s about 5 times! Saved my gear though 🙂 You can see more of my images from Bali here.
