Karangasem Besakih

In honor of International Day of Forests, here’s an image I shot in Bali, Indonesia in 2005. This scene is from high up Gunung Agung near Pura Besakih, which is the largest and holiest temple in Bali. Luck would have it that I timed my trip to coincide with an annual pilgrimage to the temple by the Balinese people. So with several Balinese friends, I remember driving in the dark on winding roads through the forest in the early morning hours before sunrise. We arrived at this location just as the sun was rising, and I was able to photograph it before visiting the temple.
