Penarik Beach located about 55km north of Kuala Terengganu is famous among local as well as foreign tourist for its pristine white sandy beach and turquoise blue sea. It is still untouched by development unlike the beaches on the west coast of Peninsula Malaysia. What makes this beach more interesting besides its beautiful seascape is it is also home to conventional offshore fishermen. Penarik Beach is located in Kampung Penarik whose inhabitants are made up of mostly fishermen. Last week I stopped by at this beautiful beach on the way back to Jerteh, my hometown, from Kuala Terengganu and managed to capture a couple of photographs of the fishermen’s activities there. It is a dying trade and I believe in the not too distant future this scene will vanish forever at the expense of the so-called development.
Jeram Linang Waterfall in Pasir Puteh, Kelantan is just approximately 15km from my parents’ house.

I have to admit that I was not so happy with the result I have got when I first shot sunrise at Pantai Air Tawar a couple of days ago. Perhaps the lighting at that time was not so flattering and I arrived there a little late. Two days later I went there again much earlier with the hope that I could bag different and hopefully better pictures. Here goes….
This time I think the lighting is better as the colour is richer and the cloud more dramatic.
I would appreciate your comment and opinion which one is preferred.
Thank you in advance.
Sungai Gabai waterfall is indeed a beautiful sight to behold and a serene place to unwind. The sound of water gushing down the cascade more than 100m high is music to my ears. I was there last weekend to capture its beauty.
Hope you enjoy the resulting images.
Recently I stumbled upon some lotuses in a quite sizeable pond. I stopped and took a couple of frames. I think lotus always becomes most of the photographers’ subject. It would appear majestic especially when backlit.
For more lotus pictures please visit my website here.
Lotus or it’s called teratai in Malay also quickly reminds me of Sweet Charity’s song “Teratai” sung by its singer, the local king of rock – Ramli Sarip. Ramli Sarip is one of my favourite local male singers besides M. Nasir. I grew up with their songs. At times they vividly evoke memory of my childhood To brother Ramli Sarip, all the best to you! You rock, big time.
Below is the video of the song Teratai and Ramli Sarip and Sweet Charity in action.

During last Deepavali holiday I took my family to FRIM Kepong to let my kids learn to enjoy the beauty of nature and to treasure the precious and pristine virgin forest at FRIM Kepong. While they were having a whale of a time soaking themselves in the cool and refreshing waterfall – of course under my wife’s supervision – I sneaked out to take some pictures, talk about killing 2 birds with one stone

Sungai Buloh Country Resort is the housing estate where I live. It is full of greenery located at the foot of the hill although I have to admit that further development is creeping in slowly but steadily and I bet we are going to lose the precious greenery in the not so distant future thanks to the greedy developer who only thinks about nothing but profit and more profit.
I woke up very early morning last weekend hoping to capture golden sunrise unfortunately I was not so fortunate. The cloud turn out to be too thick in which the sun was smothered.
However I managed to capture a few scenes nevertheless although without the glorious sky that I hoped for.
Since the lighting was not so favourable for landscape picture I decided to zoom in on the details and chose to shoot fern leaves ubiquitous around the area.
Feedbacks are welcome

Photographers, amateurs and pro alike, never fail to be amazed by silhouette.
Silhouette is a wonderful way to tell story, convey drama, capture beauty, evoke a sense of mystery and it is also used to express your mood, feelings and emotion to the viewers.
Silhouette has been a successful formula for professional photographers and photojournalist – sport photographers, war photographers, wedding photographers – you name it they have it.
Like other photographers I can’t help loving it and will try to capture it whenever appropriate and whenever the light and subject match each other to form a silhouette.
Wikipedia has even gone extra mile by providing a gallery of silhouette photographs taken by various photographers for your viewing pleasure here.
