Earth Hour at Nexus Resort Karambunai

Earth hour was two weeks ago, and only know then I'm posting up some shots from that day :P

I was contacted by a representative of this resort to help shoot the activities that they conducted in conjunction with Earth Hour. If you want to know more about Earth Hour, just click here.

Anyway, I managed to get to the place at around 6:40 pm, since Earth Hour starts around 8:30 p.m. For Earth Hour, all participating parties switched off their lights for one hour to use less energy and to give awareness to the coming energy crisis. OK, maybe I'm getting a bit melodramatic here, but just click on the link above, that should set you straight :D

OK, the plan was to have a bonfire on the beach and do some cultural dances around the fire for the guests, and to get the guests involved with the activities, but heaven decided to keep the resort from releasing more CO2 into the atmosphere by having a super heavy tropical storm greet us before the activities. So all the activities had to be done in the lobby of the resort.

The activities involved cultural dances, notably the Magunatip (I hope the spelling is correct) and a 3 piece live band. It's picture time:

There were some water droplets in the frame that was caught by my flash in this next picture, because the place was raining cats and dogs and there was quite a strong wind blowing the rain in to the lobby:

All in all it was a sweaty experience, since I had to run around all over the place to shoot.

Oh before I forget, this is how it looked like when the lights went out (shot from a hotel room on the 5th floor):
