Its been a while I haven’t posted here in my blog. Have been traveling around the whole month of June 2015 though. But, just want to share a little bit of surprise that one of the photo that I took during my trip to Lake Toba with my friends from Malaysia and Jakarta during the first part of May 2015. As the background story, I acted as their tour guide since this is their first visit to this part of Indonesia. So, I decided to just left my heavy DSLR back home and just brought my iPhone 6 Plus as my camera whenever I needed. We headed to the sipiso-piso area to show them the magnificent Lake Toba and also the famous waterfalls. Since, we arrived late I have the opportunity to catch the sunrise too. Most visitors had left the area, so we have the whole area for ourselves. And to my surprise, the Lake Toba that I normally see light up from the low golden sunlight and show its different characteristic that I myself never experienced before.
Then my reflex told me to just take photo of that moment, and my best bet will be using my only camera which is iPhone 6 Plus. I just set my iPhone to Panorama mode and just shot away. Of course I wish I had my DSLR with me, but I think iPhone itself was enough to capture the whole thing. Don’t you agree with me?
I just love this photo so much that I decided to submit to the Garuda Indonesia Colours magazines for their Photo Editor section. Lucky me, they also love it and decided to publish in their July 2015 edition. To make it all more sweeter, this photo was printed 2-page spread to really show the beauty of the lake during the golden hour.
Photo: The Golden Hour at Lake Toba.
Captured just before sunset, the golden sunlight hitting one sode of Lake Toba in North Sumatra makes the scenery all the more dramatic.
If you by any chance board any Garuda Indonesia flight for the month of July 2015, don’t forget to check this photo out, I’m sure you will love it like I do.
Besides this photo, there are also 2 more photos that I took from my trip to Bali inside the magazines.
