My brother-in-law was courageous enough to bath the elephant single-handed. I was not brave enough to venture into bathing the elephant as I preferred to take photographs of the action ( an excellent excuse ).

    The Mangrove Swamps at Sunset

This was taken of the adjacent mangrove swamps at Bukit Tambun at sunset. We were enjoying the seafood at this small fishing village after a day’s trip to Ipoh for photo-shooting and eating pleasures. Ipoh is well-known like George Town, Penang for the delicious food too.

After roadtripping through Utah’s surreal geological landscape last year, I bought a US National Parks pass and vowed to explore more of North America’s parks. There’s just so much to see.

On a recent hike up Ryan Mountain in Joshua Tree National Park, I saw panoramic views of Southern California’s desert dotted with Joshua trees, rocky formations, and mountains far off in the distance:

For this week’s challenge, share a photo of a landscape: a wide establishing shot of a scene in nature or an urban setting. Landscape photography is typically displayed in a horizontal orientation; before getting started, read photographer Jeff Sinon’s tips on composition and finding the best shot.

For inspiration, browse our editors’ picks in the landscape category of Discover.

Night Photography of the Vietnamese River – Part 3   Leave a comment


Night Photography of the Vietnamese River – Part 3

There was a river beside the hotel where we were staying for the night in Vietnam during our Photographic Society of Penang’s Photo Expedition. The usual advice by the photographer-cum-tourguide was not to bring any camera outside the hotel especially at night for security reasons. However, the scenic view by the river-side was too irresistible not to capture the beautiful night scene. So a few courageous of the photographers, including the blogger, took their DSLR’s and tripods to capture a few shots but turned to more than 50 snap shots per photographer while the rest went to bed. No risks, no gain. Luckily, we came back safe and sound with great photographs.

It’s time for a bath
The photo-shooting at a small village’s Sunday market patronized by the members of the hill tribes living there took us about two hours. After their Church services, they were shopping at the market selling clothing and other items. It was quite interesting to note their colourful clothing and intricate patterns. The female indigenous members were in their Sunday best but the male counterparts were in their modern clothing. After the session we were travelling to the next destination tens of kilometres away to continue our photo expedition to shoot another hill tribe. We were fortunate to see the male children swimming and frolicking in the muddy stream by the side of the road. Immediately, we disembarked from the bus and were busy shooting away. I am putting up the more decent photographs of them in my blog. Kids are kids and they were thoroughly enjoying themselves in the stream – muddy or not.
