Into the rainforest of Borneo …

West Kalimantan

One of my most exciting trip venturing into the tropical rainforest of Kalimantan (Borneo) Indonesia. Visiting both the great rivers of Kapuas (West Kalimantan) and Mahakam (East Kalimantan). All images are part of my book series Journeys Java to Flores.

Slash-and-burn farming is still practiced by some villagers in East Kalimantan and while exploring some of these villages I came across a woman resting in front of her house and took this shot …

    All my life I had wanted to go to the tropics to see a real rainforest. I finally saw a real rainforest, but it wasn’t in the tropics. It was in Washington state, in the Olympic National Park!

    Wow, you have a real talent. I just looked back at some of your Tibetan and Parisian photos in black and white…just a delight to the eye. I too loved photographing France and Italy when I was there but you clearly get the light and angles and story in all your photos, particularly in some of the portrait type shots.

      Thank you so much for your wonderful comments … Appreciated and you too have the eye for unique beauty. I guess taking photos is not only “technique” but it is also giving your heart and soul to it :-)

    That must have been an incredible experience, the sort of thing I’ve seen on TV but feel so far removed from. Your wonderful photos bring it all to life.

    Fantastic! I saw the word “Borneo” and immediately clicked on the post. There are few places that sound so… adventurous than that. The word evokes mystery to me. Anyway – great shots. I’m jealous.
