Island of the Gods
Bali’s popularity as a holiday and travel destination is unmatched. It’s a favourite with European students on their gap year, Australians looking for a cheap place for revelry, and regional tourists looking for a cheap but beautiful getaway. Despite massive tourism however, the island has retained its charm and authenticity.
When we visited, it was not difficult to avoid ‘tourist traps.’ We found the quiet beach-side village of Ahmed, with its incredible fresh seafood and tranquil views of the Bali Sea. We also hid within the serene forest just outside Ubud, in the spectacular Amori Villas, built into the side of a tree covered valley.

We enjoyed capturing the relaxed pace of island life in Bali. I loved the lush tropical greens under bright blue skies that are so characteristic of the tropics. I feel the warm tropical heat and that “lazy afternoon” sensation comes through in all these island photographs.
