. . . . . .

It is about 10 - 20 km beach long at south of Jawa (Yogyakarta), is called Parangtritis . .

Day was cloudy, but very nice . .

No need to walk for enjoying this beach, I rented this carriage from the entrance to the far left of the beach where there is a ritual cage and small waterfall . .

From A to Z trip cost only US$ 2,- and get excellent service . . of course there is no free cold drink and cold towel . .

Not recommended for swimming this time due to rough wave and uncertainty of the weather . .

No crop, nor color adjustment, increase contrast, add frame and resize . .

Thank you for viewing it

A nice clean tidy shot. The fact you have kept the horse and cart to oneside of the image is good because it shows wher it will go. Good use of thirds. Well done

hello Tjutjut,

This is quite an usual shot for you but nonetheless interesting!
Good off-centre composition, and the colours of the buggy do just enough to lift the 'sameness' of the cloudy day. A very enjoyable shot.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Tjutjut,
Although it lacks a tad of sharpness, it's an interesting composition with the carriage nicely far out of centre and lots of space in front of it. A fine picture my friend.

i want to join you in this plesent drive.

Hi Tjutjut,
That must be a splendid excursion in this carriage. Beautiful composition. Beautiful atmosphere which emerges from this capture. thanks

Well composed Tjutjut.

Very beautiful moment to capture

Hello Tjutjut,
I once went on a horse ride back when I was about 10, tagging along my mom for a trip to Medan. I was struggling to get on the saddle with the poor old man pushing my bum up. No, I was never a 'big' child. But I don't know why I found it so difficult. Well, the horse that I rode long, long time ago was in fact the same color as the one in your shot. With the same cream and brown spots, which reminded me of my story here.

This is a great shot of moving objects, which I still don't know how to capture. Clear view of the waves which really shows that swimming is not recommended. Overall, great composition and a job well done.

Best regards,

Hello Tjutjut. Beautiful shot at this carriage placing it right at the sweet spot. The space in front just perfect to move ahead and just stunning against the sea and sky. Pleasant looking big waves for the ride. Best regards. Jusni

Hi Tjutjut..this is a nice shot...well composed, nice details, interesting and artistic.

A real beauty, Tjutjut. Nice compo and a nice view. Maybe horse and card are a wee bit too dark, but it certainly is not a big issue.

Hello, Tjutjut,
Nice scene of this beach with the rough waves and the small carriage before it. Very well placed in the composition and I like the colors of both the horse and carriage in contrast to the more subdued colors around them. Looks like a peaceful place to visit. Many thanks,

hi tjutjut, nice shot perfect composition and clarity,

What a unique vision Tjutjut!
Very original shot, perfectly composed and placed the rider in the frame.
Good focus on the subject too.
Well done.
- Vincent

Very neat shot here Tjutjut! Amazing how they ride the beach, we don't have this here, although people just ride horses sometimes, or 4 wheelers! Really nice details!

Hello Tjutjut.
Notting better than a refreshing walk on the beach, but sure a ride it not bad either, haha
Very romantic to to with a lovely girl on your side, right ?
Thanks for showing it.

Hi Tjutjut,
I like this as it so unusual these days. It is a step back in time to a slower world pace. Well cropped to maximise the movement. The pony looks very happy to be on the beach and has a good spring in his step. TFS. Murray.

For an overcast day I think you did well Tjutjut. Good colour regardless of the gloom and well composed. I find the sharpness quite acceptable especially on the horse and cart. TFS,

Hi Tjutjut

Beautiful visual, no so common of this type to be seen

Very different but creative,

Hello Tjutjut,
A horse and cart, very nice way to get around indeed! Nice to see a well taken care of "pony" as well, I like how you gave the horse room to trot ahead in the photo, beautiful color what a peaceful spot! TFS
