Golden Hour at Lake Toba
I was lucky to live here in Medan, North Sumatra. Here you can find one of the most famous and largest volcanic lake in the world. It is called ‘Lake Toba’. With the very close proximity to where I live now. I had a chance to visit this beautiful lake for many times for the last 5 years. Every time I came back here, I always find different kind of beauty of the lake.
There are so many photos that I took and realised that I have covered most of the lake including the Samosir island located at the middle of the lake.
Here I would like to show the best collection of Lake Toba and some before seen side of the lake.
I will keep updating my collection whenever I get a chance to visit the lake in the near future.
