I rented a local fishing boat with its crew and islandhopped around Komodo National Park. Besides meeting the Komodo dragons, one of the highlights here is to hike on Padar Island. When I arrived, hardly anyone was there, since it was still early in the travel season. It felt like I had the whole island to myself. The first thing I did was to hike to the top of this hill. It was tiring, but the view was amazing: I could see most of the island and its three coves, and the setting sun added a lovely light to the scene. I felt very lucky to get this shot, especially as the crew told me there had been a storm the day before I arrived.
Komodo is part of the Lesser Sunda Islands in Indonesia and is particularly famous as being home to the Komodo dragon, the world’s largest lizard
