Kuta Beach revisited

The raw energy of Bali's Kuta Beach never fails to intrigue me, despite the crowds and the tacky shopping mall developments. Bare-chested and bleached blonde surfer dudes brush past importuning vendors and masseurs, prim Asian tourists and rubbernecks from Java. A coastal path follows the beach from the Patra Resort at Tuban (beside the airport), about an hour's walk up to Kuta Beach, and these images roughly follow that sequence.

These images were taken with Nikon D300 using RAW format, and are available for licensing. Please visit www.travelgame.org.
