Pura Ulun Danu Bratan

Bali, Indonesia

Pura Bratan is a location which is hardly connected to luck for weather conditions. We had always either bad weather with deep fog or sunny without any clouds. Maybe just bad luck. Nevertheless, this is an amazing photography location for landscape, travel and Instagram photography. You can just enter the area before opening ours through the main entry.

If you want to rent a boat before opening hours, just ask some of the workers in the area, they can organize you a boat for small fee. Really friendly stuff.

This location is also great to meet other passionate photographers. I meet Stefan & Janina from thewolf0ftravel on their world travel. Thanks to Janina I could take some beautiful photos for Instagram, as replacement for Elise, who preferred to take a longer sleep. Love you anyway sweety 🙂
