Landscape Marathon (7th - 12nd February 2012)

Salam and hi everyone,

It's been a while that I haven't update this blog. I was in Klang Valley last week (to be exact, Putrajaya) for attending few occasions, mostly photography-related.

Since the holidays is closer to the end, I want to have it used fully. I was actually put a target for myself to achieve within last week, which is to shoot landscapes at least once a day from Tuesday 7th February to Sunday 12nd February. Alhamdulillah, I managed to achieve the target and things that made it great was the good weather for the whole week.

Tuesday 7th February 2012.

I was attending the World Press Photo Exhibition that day which was held at KLCC. The weather was initially cloudy, but the clouds were clearing prior to sunset and finally revealed the blue hour. And I managed to take this picture.

Nothing much I did this day, except went out with friends at Alamanda, Putrajaya during afternoon. Again, I was lucky since the weather was very good and I captured this picture in the park outside the shopping complex.

On this day, I went out shooting twice, which at the morning and also during evening at different location. I went to shoot the sunrise at Masjid Besi, Putrajaya. This time I take the picture from different angle, which was from across the lake.

Got the rays of light, eventhough it was quite late.

I left Putrajaya during afternoon for one of the most visited spot for KL photographers, that is Flat PPR Jelatek to shoot sunset and possibly blue hour. Managed to get some good moment, but it was raining heavily during dusk so, the moment I captured was not so good compared to if I can get the blue hour.

Like on Thursday, I did shooting twice ; for both sunrise and sunset. This time at Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside and then at Taman Seri Empangan. 

I walked from my home at Presint 18 to Pullman around 5.30am in the morning and reached the place just in time. Managed again to get ROL over there and sunrise.

I was not actually plan for the evening shooting since I was quite exhausted and I have another landscape outing on Saturday. But then I received a call from my friend, Mr. Syibli asking me whether I want to join him or not for the sunset outing that evening. I agreed and went out to the place. Alhamdulillah, I was lucky that day since the weather was very good and I managed to get another ROL that time.

As I mentioned earlier, I was joining a landscape outing this day at Bagan Lalang and it was organised by Not much good pictures I managed to take due to the time constraint and there was a high tide which made me and friends cannot stay longer at that place.




Sunday 12nd February 2012.

This is the last day before I went back to Taiping. I was invited by one of friends who come for the yesterday program (at Bagan Lalang) to shoot sunrise at Masjid Putra. It turned out to be one of the best moment I managed to shoot since the weather was very good and the angle that I got was just perfect.

That's all for now. Maybe these pictures are my last since I'm leaving Malaysia for New Zealand next week. Thanks all for your visit to this blog.
