Another great trip to see Pacu Jawi in Sumatra. It has been a new location every time I go, and this location was a great one for shooting. The cows came straight at me, and the rice paddy was not too long, so I was able to get a direct view of the cows coming at me…just had to be aware of what was going on as you could easily get run over if you were not paying attention.
We arrived on site at around 10:00 am, and the races didn’t start until 1:00. We had about an hour of shooting the races, but then it started to pour rain at around 2:00. It was a torrential rain, and it didn’t stop. Out in the middle of the rice paddies, there is no where to hide from the rain, so the entire crowd bundled together under the small tents that were put up for the vendors at the site. We had to leave at 3:00, so we only got an hour of shooting before we had to leave. Oh well…still a fantastic day!!
