Mount Kinabalu – 17 & 18 December 2011


It has always been my dream to go here, and I was really lucky because the weather was very nice during my trip. I came with 14 other members mostly from Penang.

Since there are too mane pictures that I want to share, so I’ll break it into a few post. Here are some of the pictures, hope you guys enjoy it… =)



First Day: Sunset view from the Gunting Lagadan Hut




Second day: Sunrise view from the top of Mount Kinabalu, also known as the Low Peak.



Sunrise from the other side causing this beautiful scenery, shadow of the Low Peak.


Me, my friends Hamdi and Shahril with the foreigners from Australia. Have a little chat with them before I continue making myself busy taking a lot more pictures. =p



This is a mandatory picture for all who make it to the Low Peak. For those who are late to arrive here will have to wait for quite a long queue to take picture here.


My team members, from left Shahril, Nazreen and Hamdi.


Thanks Hamdi for this picture… =)


Our guide, very kind and friendly ( forgot his name, will update this later once I remember his name).


Going back down.


The sky was really blue, and I was really happy that day. Safely arrived at the top, and having a really nice sunset the day before, and also manage to have a really nice sunrise on the second day, making all the pain going up here carrying heavy backpack really worth it. Alhamdulillah.

It’s almost 2 am right now, I have to sleep. I’ll continue to post more pictures on my next post.

Good nite all. =)

Sunset 1- Pantai Puteri, Melaka

Pantai Puteri Melaka, 15 Mac 2010: Just my luck this day. I was waiting for the ambient to be darker so that I can set my shutter longer (I’m using 3 stop ND filter this time). My intention was to get a smooth water and a moving sky. I set my camera to Manual mode, apperture to 22 and shutter to 10 seconds. As I was waiting suddenly there comes a man riding his horse. Swiftly, I change my camera setting to AV and just click my camera. The only setting that I manage to change is the EC, I drop it one stop. Luckily I manage to take this scene although it would have been better if I realized it earlier. At the end of the day, this picture turns to be the picture that I like the most that day… =)

sunset 2

Venue: Pantai Robina

I decided to try a new place. Have been there before but I dont really know how the sunset there… So, here it is… I think it would have been nicer if there are other things that I can frame here, but there is nothing actually. If there are a fishing boat, or people walking around etc etc… it would make this sunset scene better. ..Dont you think so?
