In August we got to attend celebrations for Indonesia's Independence Day anniversary celebrations in Surabaya. 

One of the satisfactions about being a photographer traveling across Java is that you never know what great photogenic surprises you’re going to come across, but you know you will, & you'll occasionally be shouting to your driver, “Stop! Stop!  Stop! Pull over!”

This happened when we were careening across the rice paddies on the scenic route from Jogjakarta to East Java.  On that route you can't help but loving the unique beauty of the Trenggalek region.

You’re going to want to stay tuned after viewing this.  I’m not just telling you about a very cool place I visited to photograph.  This is a world-famous site where I hope to lead YOU to photograph in the months to come.
