Tanah Lot Sunset in Bali Picture

Tanah Lot Sunset in Bali is my picture for this week. I took this shot while a Balinese fisherman was standing at the rocks. At the same time, the waves were coming in hard splashing against the rocks resulting in this beautiful picture. The location is on the right side of the temple in the distance. Taken with a 300mm lens on my beat up old Nikon D60.

For those heading here, note that this is one of the most popular tourist places in Bali and you can expect thousands of visitors during sunset. Also, make sure you come in slippers as getting on to the beach during the sunset, the waves start to come in. Sometimes, waves are quite big here at Tanah Lot in Bali.

Cool picture! Do these waves come often or did you wait for it? I remember a friend photographer of mine who spend hours waiting for the right wave to hit in Curacao :)

That is a master piece which I would love to have as a poster on my wall.

Wow, that is a stunning photo. The waves crashing on the rocks really give it that extra edge. Well done! :)

This is one of my favorite temples to see in Bali. What a great shot! I loved the sunset view. My other favorite is at Lake Bratan, Unu Danu only they're ruined it with jet ski and boat rentals and tourism nonsense.

Roy - Apparently in the evening, the waves come in hard here so I simply looked for the right timing.

Inka - Thank you very much. Would you like a larger picture from me?

Christy and Grace - Thanks a bunch!

Lisa - Thank you. The only thing that did not spoil the mood here was the absence of motorised sports.

Thristan and Mom2kiddos - Thanks a lot :)

May - If I recall correctly, it was f4.8.

PNR and Yuliang - Thanks again.
