BOAB, it's a unique name and an iconic tree to Western Australia. Before I started my trip around Australia, I had this shot picture perfectly in my head. When we get to north Western Australia, we drove around trying to find a savannah with Boab trees. We had to take our 4wd car to explore before we found this one tree. When I started to shoot, I got more than I bargained for. I noticed that the intersection street light sat right behind the tree, gives a beautiful glow behind the Boab tree. You could also see Mars above the tree rising from the horizon under the arc of the Milkyway.

I left my career as an engineer in April 2014 to pursue my passion in travel and photography. I've started a photography company called The Wicked Hunt. Since then I've spent 2 months driving through Java Island, Bali and Lombok, Indonesia. Then continued with 4 months trip around Australia. On the 16th of January I will start a new chapter in Canada. My mission is to travel the world, see different culture and background, capture the moment, then share and hopefully help to inspire other people to travel. I strongly believe that travel help to open people's mind and become more empathetic t
