Borneo 2014

Friday the 14th March marked my fifth return from a trip to Borneo. The aim of this trip was exploration of mountain rainforests that I consider as one of the most beautiful biotopes in the world. One week was spent on an island full of monitor lizards. And the remaining 8 days, in the heart of the highest mountain of Borneo Mount Kinabalu, which is home to endless collections of flora and fauna that is more endemic than diverse. Many plants and animals are impossible to see in the wild anywhere else in the world and are unique to this area. In order to have a better understanding of the entire national park, we visited three main entrance points – Poring (500 mnm), Kinabalu Hedquarters (1500 mnm) and Mesilau (2000 mnm).


Each region represents a totally different biotope type and I endeavoured to capture the nuances in my photos. As a result, the landscape photographs from this trip prevail over animal portraits and I truly hope that they will find their admirers. The first photos are already in the photo gallery to which more and more will be added. I’m glad, that my photos from Borneo currently have over 1.5 million views.
