A Day on Gili Meno

Gili Meno, Lombok, Indonesia
South 08° 21' 18.9", East 115° 03' 41.3"

A father and son prepares to cast off in their fishing boat.

Crystal clear waters

Some old boat in a bad need of repairs.

How every meal starts off with, not breakfast, really.

A boat carrying scuba divers passes local fishermen.

A fishermen brings back his catch.

The only form of transport on the island is donkey and cart. So nice not to have scream of moto-scooters.

The day comes to an end.

Grilling up today's catch. That's my slab of fish there.

When the sun goes down, the Milky Way comes out, complete with a shooting star. I took this photo with a 2 minute long exposure mounted on a tripod while sitting on the beach.

And since I am in the Southern Hemisphere and there is no North Star, you can see the Southern Cross, above the horizon, sitting on its side.
