Nunukan (part1)

September 2008 kami menginjak Nunukan.. minim tempat rekreasi (sampai saat ini), wisata alamnya juga banyak yang hancur karena booming penjarahan kayu yang dilegalkan Inhutani antara 80an-90an. Banyak juga sisa hutan yang masih lebat, sisa hutan itu semoga tidak rusak, bahkan diharapkan bertambah areanya. Pemerintah daerah setempat telah banyak berperan dalam mencegah kerusakan  , mereduksi kerusakan hutan dan meremajakannya. Usaha itu bukannya tanpa kendala. Hutan yang telah gundul ternyata hanya memiliki lapisan humus tipis yang segera terkikis air hujan. (lihat gambar di atas) lapisan tanah dibawahnya bukannya tidak subur, menurut sumber yang dapat dipercaya, lapisan tanah merah hutan kalimantan yang sulit ditumbuhi tanaman ini banyak mengandung unsur hara namun memiliki tingkat keasaman yang tinggi. Petani biasanya mengakalinya dengan membakar semak untuk menurunkan tingkat keasaman tanah ini. Alternatif lain adalah pemupukan yang tentu mahal biayanya. Hal ini menjelaskan mengapa pembakaran lahan yang asapnya kita ekspor ke negara tetangga  sulit dihentikan.. 


September 2008 we came to Nunukan.. very few recreational site (until recently), there’ s many forest destroyed caused by legally illegal logging during Inhutani period on 80’s-90’s. The rest of the forest seems still well preserve _even though sometimes we hear the roaring sounds of chainsaw machine among the silence of the forest_ and hopefully the preserved area is increase. Local government has been playing important role in stopping deforestation, reduct the destruction, and preserve it. All of those efforts are not smooth in action, The destroyed forest actually has only thin layer of “humus” (a called for humid soil that makes plants grow well) which is soon washed away by rain. (see picture above) The “red soil” is actually humid, according to trustable sources, this hardly plant-growth-on soil has rich trace elements that plants need but they locked by a high level of acid pH. Farmers usually trick this situation by burn all bushes on farming area to decrease the level of soil acid instead of highly-expensive using of chemical fertilizer. This should explain why every year we always have smoke problem with our neighbour such as Malaysia and Singapore , It’s hard to stop such thing..

 Nunukan sedang membangun, sejak pemekaran dari kabupaten Bulungan tahun 1999 kabupaten ini maju pesat. Dalam waktu 10 tahun saja cukup banyak infrastruktur yang dibangun antara lain: Bangunan Rumah Sakit Umum, gedung perkantoran, peremajaan puskesmas pembantu lengkap dengan fasilitasnya, sarana jalan raya, pelabuhan baru, peremajaan pasar, gedung sekolah dan sebagainya yang akan ditampilkan di posting-posting berikutnya secara acak agar tidak membosankan:)


Nunukan is a growing city, since we split from Bulungan in 1999, this city is grow rapidly. Only in 10 yeArs we're able to build many government office, renewal of public health centers including the advance facility, new wide roads, harbour, marketplace, school, etc more to come at next postings randomly

about Photos:
all the photos was taken with Sony cybershot H7. Every digtal imaging is light-dependent. the more light intensity the sharper the picture. pict no.2 was taken at iso 80, shutter speed 1/400, f4.5, as you can see there's no noise. Every detail was captured perfectly..Pict no. 6 and 7 waS taken without tripod. bad example but to practice your ability in jurnalism photography which is demand sudden action, night shooting without tripod skill is sometimes needed:) (shutter speed 3'',  ISO 800, f2.7 and steady hand of course)
