500Px photographer Taufik Sudjatnika has an incredible set of images of life in rural Indonesia shot with a Canon 5D Mark II and a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L lens. While many of these images may have been staged they’re still spectacular in composition and technical detail.

Daisy in early morning light

Daisy in early morning light

Warren, Connecticut. I was sitting here in my bathrobe, reading the postmortem of the big political weekend and I noticed that the morning sun was starting to illuminate the clump of daisies that my wife made me mow around (good thinking Anne). Thinking of Duncan’s flower on the other side of the world, I gathered my gear and tromped out to the daisies in my robe and flip flops. You know summer is here when you can actually do stuff like this.

This summer is going to be a great one for photography.

Asiatic Lily Jungle

Asiatic Lily Jungle

Warren, Connecticut. A friend called at the end of a rainy day and said that she knew where there was a yard full of Asiatic lilies that were in full bloom and that I should pack up my camera gear and get over quick between downpours. It was a perfect day: broken clouds, small bits of low angle sunlight breaking through, wet atmosphere, and water droplets on the flowers. And, I had her eye to help me find interesting plants. I took my time and took in all the great shapes and colors. I didn’t even notice that I was being eaten by mosquitoes until I got home.
