Golden Hour at Lake Toba

It is all about Best of Indonesia. Two of my photos are among the 8 that the editor choose to be featured. No 1 for Lake Toba and no 7 for Mount Mahawu (Manado).

*******************************************************************************************

1. Lake Toba, North Sumatra

Photographer and software developer Suwandi Chandra from Medan, North Sumatra took this photo in April using just his iPhone6s and the photo editing app Snapseed. “I’ve been to this lake for many times, but every time I am here, it shows different kind of beauty. This was my first sunset there and I think that’s the best time to enjoy the lake.”

This month (November 19-22) the town of Berastagi will host the Lake Toba Festival, a celebration of Sumatran culture including boat races, music, fashion and art.

7. Hiking

Aside from the stunning coral reefs of Bunaken, Manadu in North Sulawesi offers beautiful hills for hiking. Photographer Suwandi Chandra wrote, “It’s true Bunaken is beautiful but with the many volcanoes surrounding the city, exploring the highland also a great and affordable activity. I took this photo from Mount Mahawu overlooking this Tondano lake — it’s an easy hike.”

“I’m sure you will love it especially at the top with this superb view, blue sky, yellow and green fields and lake water, complete with cool and refreshing air.”

We’re sold.
