Photographer's Note

This bridge is named Bangkirai Bridges,In Balikpapan. there are 3 bridges who conect from one tree to other, this is 30m above the ground and you can see how tall it is from the picture,made from Bangkirai wood,Bangkirai wood or (Ulin as the Borneon called it )or you may familiar with Iron Wood , is kind of tree that more old the tree ages,the wood will be as strong as the iron ... (or it will be stronger by the time),i guess there are only 5 in the world, they used to be using it for an experiment or something but after they not using it anymore the government turn this place in to a tourist place to visit .

it was my first experience to bukit bangkirai although i was born there , 58km from the hill , and raise in Kalimantan, but when i took this picture, i was visit there as a tourist in fact i lived in Jakarta now . was pretty exciting experiences when you walk on this bridges and see the ground you will test your adrenalin, they will not allow you up there when the wind like 30km/hour because the bridge will swinging over ... not hard but still you can feel the tree moving.

i hope you enjoy the picture and forgive me if you not pretty understand my English , I Am not really good with it :)
