Photographer's Note

This shot was taken at Golo Curu, north of Ruteng town in the late afternoon as the sun was setting behind the heavy clouds overlooking Ruteng Highland and mist hung low over the valley was just beginning to peep through.


Brief infor about Ruteng;
Ruteng at 1500m elevation, is a small town and a meeting point for the hill people of western Flores, the heart of the Manggarai country. The town is surrounded by scenic rice fields and terraced slopes beneath a line of volcanic hills and the crispy cool air gives Ruteng the feeling of a cool hill station. Home to the native Manggarai ethnic who is predominantly Roman Catholic, is one of the major ethnic communities in Flores besides Lio, Ngada and Sikka.
