Great Bergenphotos 2017-02-02 9:31

Hei Gert.

I just discovered you had some photos from this region and it's interesting to see. I did this same route two weeks ago from Sibu to Kapit, Kapit to Belaga, and by car and bus from there to Miri. I don't think much have changed. There may be faster express boats (we did the journey from Kapit to Belaga in five hours), but there are still these smaller canoes that dominate the river. And the jungle still stands, luckily.

I like the choice of B&W in this one. It reminds me of one night in Belaga where I went to the river just to enjoy the silence and the few raindrops falling. I could see the trees on the other side and it all looked like B&W. I'd like to see how it would work with a more narrow composition and about the bottom 1/5 of the photo cropped out. But it does the job, thanks for sharing!

Beste hilsener,
Fredrik

Default To Bergenphotos: Tack Fredrik

Hej Fredrik, tack fr din kommentar.
Det var intressant att du varit i dessa trakter. Du fr grna lgga ut ngra bilder. Kapit minns jag inte mycket av, men jag kommer ihg Belaga ganska vl och har en del andra bilder drifrn. Det skulle vara skoj att kunna jmfra. Men menar du att det finns en riktig vg frn Belaga till Miri? Jag var tvungen att ka tillbaka nda till Sibu och flyga till Miri, fr d fanns det ingen riktig vg ens lngs kusten, och absolut inte uppe i inlandet.
Hlsningar,
Gert

Default Veier i Belaga

Hei igjen. Kystveien fra Sibu til Miri er n en god vei. For noen r siden ble det bygget en demning i nrheten av Belaga, og en passe god vei fulgte med. Men fortsatt er siste delen til Belaga (litt under en time) ekstremt drlig. Etter hva jeg forstr var det en gammel vei som militret bygget i sin tid. Det gr ingen busser der, men jeg fikk ordnet bil som kjrte meg til kystveien. Har en kort video som jeg tenker laste opp p Flickr.
