It was really sunny, and the sun shone quite strongly. I drove along the coastal road of Penang for sight seeing. The beach is wonderful but it hard to stop as the roadside was full of parking cars.
Until I reach Teluk Bahang, the beach was pretty quiet.
I walk to the beach as witness this lovely lone beach grown with a family of morning glory. It was already noon nd the flowers were still wide opened and fresh.
The purple flowes gave a wonderful foreground for me. How lovely, I wish I could swim but it was too hot for me.
To my surprise, I saw a couple of Europenan tourists in their swimming suits swam happily.

Teluk Bahang

A secret hideaway, enjoy a relaxing and leisurely time of your life

Teluk Bahang, known as "Bay of the Glowing Amber" is situated at the upper northern tip of our Penang .

It lies about 5 kilometers after Batu Feringghi, the prominent tourist’s belt of Penang. To some Teluk Bahang means the “Bay of The Glowing Amber“ probably refers to the warm climate due to the sea breeze coming in shore. Avid photographers must be responsible for its unique name as the sunset taken here by far the most perfect.

Dear Foozi

It's a big pleasure to discover a picture of a different kind from you. It's simply an eye-candy, mainly because of the superb colours and the subtle composition highlighted by the low point of view. The dramatic sky adds to the value of the picture.

Kind regards

Hi MF Foozi,

Excellent landscape capture from low POV with delightful composition.
TFS and greetings from Adana,


Hi Fozzi,
Perfect flower lanscape¿?¿? excellent colors and POV
TFS & best regards.

Hallo Foozi
How striking is this seascape and how well did you capture it. The wide open spaces as far as one can see are just beautiful. The colours of the wildflowers appear so bright and with life. It is wonderful to look at, adding the blue sky with the clouds and rounding it off with mountains and the green-blue ocean. For sure a dream place to be. Thanks for sharing and making me dream of being there and witnessing it for myself. Best regards.

Hi Foozi,

Beautiful shot with lovely flowers in the FG and great landscape in the BG!
The sharpness and POV are very well chosen here with well shown natural colors.
Great composition!

best regards,

Hello Foozi,
This is a wonderful coastal view of Penang, from where we have fond memories. I like your composition very much with the flowers in the foreground. A nice low POV, great DOF and beautiful colours. It is never too hot for a Swede to swim - we hate the cold!!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Excellent shot of this meadow on the sea. Great focusing, composition and lighting,
Best wishes,

Hi Foozi.
I love your pictorial shot with amazing subject and skill of execution. All pictured objects are sweet. Blossoming plants, alone tree, beach and sea, hills in the far distance and cloude sky create a lovely composition. DOF is brilliant, details are amazing, colours are awesome. Bravo. Great art shot. TFS and best wishes.

wow, what a paradise!!
a very nice place in a so good shot

Hello Foozi,

A lovely landscape and a beach full of pink flowers, amazing!
The interesting low point of view makes the image stand out, attractive composition...
And Europeans usually stay for a week or so, they can not afford to miss a day of swimming hahaha!

Pablo -

Hello Foozi! Nice flowers, very nice landscape, amazing sky, good POV and capture. Very good exposure. Well done!

Hi Foozi,

The diagonal line of the beach is an asset to the composition. The flowers in the foreground lead my eyes toward the mountain which is giving depth to the photo. The afternoon light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
