The Elusive Sunset

Betung 1: Very mild wow factor.
Betung 2: Slightly better as the sun goes lower on the horizon.
Betung 3: I like that shimmer on the water effect.
Ferringhi 1: Just a red dot in the horizon.
Ferringhi 2: Red dot dimming fast.
Ferringhi 3: Red dot gone but reddish/orangey tinge lingers.
First location - Kampung Sungai Betung, southwest of Penang Island, facing Straits of Malacca - shots taken using Mama's Leica DSLR, no tripod, 420mm zoom lens.
Second location - Bayusenja, Batu Ferringhi, Penang, facing Andaman Sea - shots taken using Dad's Nikon DSLR, no tripod, 250mm zoom lens.

Angelina's note: Mama and Dad better improve on their photography skills lest I refuse to tag along when they're off to the middle of nowhere (like that first location). The photography session in Ferringhi was done before we had dinner with my furrriends in the area. purrr....meow!

No, there's nothing like sunrise with a long stick of keropok lekor in one hand - and the sound of meowing in a distance.

Dear Angelina,
Did you enjoy being at the beach? Or is it just a giant litter tray to you?

Carolyn said...

Beautiful! Sunsets over the water are extra special :>)

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Dear Pakcik,
Of course. You live in the land of sunrise, I was too in Sydney. But now I'm enjoying my sunsets. purrr...meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Yatt,
Mama had a bad experience with the nasi kandaq and to eat tons of charcoal tablets. So, the rest of us are deprived too. But we had ikan and seafood at Batu Ferringhi....not complaining.... purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Uncle Aby,
Afraid I'm not familiar with that movie, I'm still learning the culture...slowly, OK? purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

CO78,
Nope, no poo-ing on the beach! Anyway, after getting used to commercially prepared aromatic clumping materials, it would be hard to go back to nature....purrr...meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Carolyn,
I know....it is mesmerising, isn't it? purrr....meow!
