Climbing Mount Rinjani, Lombok

At 3,726 m, Rinjani is the second highest volcano in Indonesia

Landed at Lombok international airport in the morning and from the airport, the drive took about 5 hour drive to Sembalun village, with stops and lunch along the way.

19/4. First camp, first light.

6:00pm Start from village to first camp site to avoid the heat and sun. This part of trek is through open space all the way. Arrived our campsite for the day after three hours walk, 6.5 KM. Had our first dinner at camp site that night, which will be mainly rice and soup, veggie or instant noodles. Tonight camp site is an open space in the fields.

Reorganising your photos

In the future…

After years taking pictures, do realise the photos could add up to just so much. In my album, currently there’s about twelve thousand pictures, which at one time was over 20,000… Then, after years of procrastinating, I finally complete the daunting task of deleting (hopefully) all unwanted pictures.

Resource for becoming a better photographer?

Ok, this is something that’s not new, but I’m just sharing it anyways as an affiliate.

Through the years, I’ve bought some good ebooks about photography and I feel that they can helped self-taught photographers (like myself) quite a lot. Here are some of them in my collection that you can buy. I’ve been using them time and again for references.

There are other books that I got from other places but these are  from DPS .

Just click on the images and it’ll take you to the site.

Namaste…

My second visit to Nepal Annapurna base camp… first visit was in 2014. For more details do read the earlier post Trekking to Annapurna Base Camp. Although the trails are about the same, this time it was done with a shorter time and a different stop, with a different group. I wondered, what will it be like… what to expect…

The stress back at home.

back from the outlands

After a month isolated, the time to go home finally came. Generally, it’s the time where everyone’s eager no matter who, what you’re doing if it’s work or backpacking or from a holiday, or if you are far at the other side of the planet or just a few hours plane ride, home is still in a sense, our comforting realm, heavenly kingdom. Or is it?
