🇲🇾 Old photog learning digital photography 💓 long exposure photography No theme, just shoot & post whatever I like 😀 Photos by yours truly 😊
I believe this is one of our Malaysian favorite past time, "cari makan" (looking for something to eat).
Patience in waiting is very important in landscape photography. Having experienced nearly the same weather situation at Sekinchan a few months ago, I was hoping the sky will turn burning red as what I saw at Sekinchan. Sadly the clouds are much thicker here than those at Sekinchan but mother nature stills provide a very beautiful sunset which makes my day for the evening and the waiting is all worth it.
When plan A fails, turn to plan B. When the primary egg yolk sunset subject is a no show, turn the secondary subject (the rocks) into the primary subject. That's what happened when I was standing there wondering whether the sun will peep through the thick clouds or not. So instead of waiting for it to happen, I decided to take a couple of shots of the rocks.
The light at the end of the tunnel, hopefully that's the case on my lack of luck too 😉😃 Was at town for walkabout and decided to take the MRT from downtown to 1-Utama at the west of the town as I haven't rode on the MRT for this route before. Decided to play with slow shutter speed on my phone camera just for the fun of it as we were traveling in the tunnel.
Back to Putrajaya again last weekend with fellow photographers for sunrise shot. But being in the inter-monsoon period, the weather has been quite wet for the last 1 month. With that, the sky is normally with heavy clouds and that is no exception during our outing. With no egg yolk sunrise shot, I'm just as happy to get this blue hour shot. As I had been to this location twice before where I had photographed the Putra Mosque from directly opposite the mosque, this time I decided to move further away to another corner of the lake to get the Prime Minister's Office in the view too. The PMO can be seen on the left side of the mosque in this photo.
Coming to such places brings back memories of my childhood days where we used to jump into the rivers or the sea during weekends, digging for clams on the river bed (during low tide) or the beach, snorkeling, rowing the small sampan, etc. Those were the fun days.
This was shot during the Singapore NDP preview 2 night a few months ago. Was hoping to shoot some boat light trails but sadly the Singapore river cruise was not operating on that particular night. The bright light trail is the G-Max swing. I'll be back soon!!!
Been awhile since I shot a panning shot and am very rusty at it. Shot this at Drive 4 Paul Malaysia - in memory of Paul Walker Car Show.
An evening at Singapore Marina Bay a couple of months back during the Singapore NDP preview 2.
A few minutes later, the sun came up and brighten up the sky with golden glow.
Just before the sun rises at Sekinchan.
"Give me a fish and I eat for a day. Teach me to fish and I eat for a lifetime" Chinese proverb. Guess I still need to buy my fish from the local market as I'm a very very lousy fisherman. 😊 Even though I had passed through this town many times during my younger days, I had never turned into the fishing village side of the town and this is the first time I'm visiting this place.
