Photographer's Note

a picture I took not so long ago at Curug Cilember, West Java.

The place itself is a highly commercialized tourist attraction just outside Bogor, West Java. It is located on a hillside, seven consecutive waterfalls in all. One have to hike for about 30 minutes from one spot to the next one. It's a leisure trek though, with paved road and moderate steepness. So it's a family-friendly hike. There's a campsite nearby, but expect a full house on school holidays, especially in some of the nearer waterfalls. As you go higher, the crowds are significantly diminishing.

I took this picture on a tripod with a wide-angle Sigma and Ilford SFX IR filter attached behind the lens. I won't take a risk taking out the filter and attaching it again for compositioning, thus exposing my CCD to water and dust, so I make a composition without looking at the viewfinder at all, hoping that the extreme wide nature of the lens permits me to crop the photo l8r if necessary...
