Photographer's Note

A photograph of a Sanghyang Jaran dancer that I took this afternoon.
I used a slow speed, handheld and using flash to capture the trance atmosphere.
At the background, the kecak dancers sat and sang the choir of the sanghyang jaran.

What is Sanghyang Jaran?
Sanghyang Jaran danced by a man riding a horse made of coconut leaf sheath. After the ceremony and the dancer is already possessed by the spirit of god's horse riding of heaven, dancers will walk and jog with a bare foot stepping on coals of fire from a prepared coconut shells in place where the sanghyang dance is held, this dance dlaksanakan when society is concerned about the state of nature . You can attend a dance performance Sanghyang Jaran in Badung, Denpasar, Gianyar and Bangli regency.

Hope you like it.
