The Cardboard Camera Is Very Practical For A Beach Outing.

Someone asked me today about my favourite local beach. Not for swimming or water activities. For sunset photography.
Sunsets are almost always fabulous from the seaside. KL is landlocked. So what do we do? We can travel to the nearest beach. Where can we go? Morib is on the west coast facing the Straits of Malacca and facing the setting sun.

Beaches For Your Sunset Pics - Part 1b.

If you noticed. I named this Part1b because it is an unplanned inclusion of another Morib beach sunset view. It is the silhouette pic of my friend. the shapely and beautiful Sarawakian, Elisha.

Sunsets can be great for silhouettes. It is also photographed from the Morib Esplanade, as with the previous beach pic.but on a different day.

Don't worry if you arrived late at the beach, It is the afterglow of various hues that is magical. Many people leave the minute the sun drops below the horizon. Don't and you will be rewarded.

Seaside Cats

Seaside Cats

Morib Beach is sort of bizarre. I saw wild monkeys and stray cats on the same day. The sunset was dull and cool at the esplanade on that day but I saw something heart warming. Hard to see in this pic but some of the of the human visitors were sharing their snacks with a couple of appreciative homeless cats.

The A7R camera's resolution is so massive I can crop in (on another shot), recover from the shadows and show the close up as an inset.

Sometimes, seeing a sunset can cheer you up, sometimes seeing a simple act of kindness can too.

The Beach Boys Of Morib

The Beach Boys at Morib Beach

Morib beach is so idyllic, secluded and near yet nobody comes here on a weekday. Except for the beach boys, a group of monkeys having the esplanade to themselves. Glad to see wildlife co existing.

Delightful to see them swinging on Casuarina trees. Morib is the nearest real beach for us landlocked KLites. You will cry if you come here on a weekend as I previously did. The amount of litter and garbage strewn about and left behind by visitors was shocking.

Lala or Clams Fried With Vermecelli

He correctly noted that the original image of Lala or clams fried with bee hoon or vermicelli from the Asus phone (on Facebook) could do with more DOF or depth of field. It was his polite and tactful way of saying it was not perfectly focused. Nice guy. :-)

I looked at the image back home on a big screen and try to figure out what went wrong. We sat at a table at edge of the restaurant, where there was too much sun spilling in. While the free lighting was appreciated, it also meant one thing.
