Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: 2017 Favorites

Here are my favorite photos during my travels in 2017 becoming my entry for Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: 2017 Favorites:

Flores, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia

My trip to Flores, East Nusa Tenggara, with Indonesia Photo Tour, a photography tour operator, is the starting point to realize that my favorite scope of photography is landscape photography. Simultaneously, capturing shades of sky becomes my new obsession, especially during magical hours, such as golden hour and blue hour.

Further posts about my trips to Flores: Trekking on Padar Island: Challenging Path for Breathtaking Views and Chasing Sunset on Gili Lawa

Central Park Mall, Jakarta, Indonesia

Landscape photography is not always necessarily about nature. Cityscape is another type of landscape photography in big cities. The best moments are especially in the evening or night when the lights from buildings, bridges, neon signs start to appear after the sun goes down. Some shopping malls have beautiful scenes to capture at night, including Central Park Mall in West Jakarta.

Further post about my cityscape photography trip is here.

Siem Reap, Cambodia

I simply love everything about Siem Reap, from majestic temples to restaurants and pubs on Pub Street. Make sure you don’t miss all the beautiful spots to capture!

Further post about my trip to Cambodia is here.

Japan

A slow travel could be the best way to travel anywhere in the world if you love finding details and less-seen spots, including Japan. To be honest I didn’t really do a slow travel in the country since I moved to different cities every 3 days, I still could find unique and interesting elements in places I visited. Indeed, Japan is more than just temples, shrines and sushi.

Argapura, Majalengka, Indonesia

Panyaweuyan Hill is a terasering field in Argapura sub-district in Majalengka district, situated approximately 2 hours from Cirebon City, West Java, Indonesia. Nonetheless, the name of the hill is less mentioned and better known as Argapura. One of the most iconic crops is green onion. Despite its magnificent view, this place is still considered an off the beaten path destination and merely popular among photography community members. So, should you have visited terasering rice field in Bali, it’s time to visit Argapura as well!

That’s all, folks! May 2018 be a wonderful year for further travel adventures!
