Location: Kabupaten Ketapang,  Kalimantan Barat (Borneo) - 2011 

Walking through the forest in the early morning provides a great start to the day… listening to the first bird songs, hearing the distant call of gibbons and feeling the humidity of the morning fog around us. 

Sunrays at Alas Purwo 

Photographer:  Medha Baskara

Location: Taman Nasional Alas Purwo,  Banyuwangi (Jawa Timur) - 2010 
There are a million facades to the forest in Alas Purwo National Park, Banyuwangi, East Java, which contains a wide range of protected wildlife. The early morning sun, shining down through the forest canopy and illuminating the undergrowth, creates an unforgettable picture. Sea wind blows spray into the forest and sunrays dance in the misty air..


Growing old

Photographer: Budi Jatmiko

Location: Sukamantri, Bogor (Jawa Barat) - 2011
The young wait for the old, devotedly, with the sun as a friend. Time changes - that is how nature goes through the day. One by one they fade away, and new buds grow. This is the way of nature... regeneration.
