Bali Fruits

(photos of hair fruit and snake fruit at roadside stands in Bali.) At each food stand, Nancy enthusiastically bubbled out of the car to investigate what new might be found. First, she found the hair fruit. We found “snake fruit” later in the day.

Zebra Fans

(Two underwater images of Zebra Lionfish.) Probably my favorite lionfish in the Lembeh Strait was the small zebra lionfish. Shades of red, salmon-pink, and orange are striped with white and the fish’s fins are webbed, with spines that do not protrude very far. The overall effect is a beautiful, brightly colored orange and red fan near the dull, black sand bottom. It is often seen holding station or slowly crawling along the bottom using the hooked spines on the bottom of its fins.

Bali Stupa

(HDR image of the Buddhist stupa at the top of the Bramavihara-Arama Temple, near Banjar, Bali.) The Bramavihara-Arama Buddhist Temple is the religious site to visit in northern Bali; so, we went. The temple is vertical, with grounds, gardens, and shrines on several levels. At the top I emerged at an enormous open space, with wide lawns and seating steps set amongst manicured gardens, leading across a broad stepped field to this impressive stone stupa. The spiritualist in me reveled in the quiet majesty.

Orange Skunk

(Underwater photo of a pair of orange skunk anemonefish.) I love anemonefish. These orange skunk anemonefish were the brightest, cleanest color I’d seen. Their home, a brown anemone, really offset and complimented the color of the fish.

Bali Volcano View

(HDR landscape shot of Mount Batur in Bali, Indonesia.) The bottom of the ancient volcano, now verdant and dotted with houses and villages, falls away to the new volcano, Mount Batur and its nearby lake. Beyond the lake is Bali’s tallest mountain, Mount Agung.
