We decided to escape the wintery weather in Seattle this year by coming to Indonesia for January (our third trip here), including a long dive trip in the remote Raja Ampat region near Papua. Before heading out there we spent a few days in Bali and yesterday we hooked up with our good friend Ketut to drive around some of the places we haven't seen (we've been here a few times before). We decided to head out to the western portion of the island where Ketut's village is, and after visiting his family we headed up into the mountains to check out the rice fields and the incredibly lush and verdant foliage. Btw, the monkeys are Macaques and hang out by the side of the road on the way down the mountain.

All the photos were taken with a Canon EOS5D on aperture priority with an EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS lens (except the one obvious fisheye shot which was using an 8-15mm f/4.0L fisheye).
