Hi Folks,

This image was a shot from the bridge across Sulaman River near Tuaran. At the backdrop is the iconic Mount Kinabalu, Malaysia’s highest mountain at 13,455ft.

The bridge is a popular spot to capture the scenic rising and at late morning on a fine day the majestic mountain is all yours to photograph.

At the river bank on the right was where I captured this and this. The only thing you need to be watchful is crocodiles. Just nearby the riverbank on the left is a crocodile farm and during high tide or flood crocodile hatchlings may escape to the river!

While waiting for the rising sun, the chance to capture passing boat(s) – upstream or otherwise - is always there and it adds liveliness to the dramatic sun rise.

I was standing just at the right spot, at the right time to capture the beautiful symmetrical arrowhead shape ripples, heading to where the sun rises.

Thanking you in advance for viewing and your kind words.

Hi Agoes,

Very beautiful Agoes. THe dramatic sky color, reflecting in the water ... the boat centered in the shot ... it all makes a fantastic shot. Great job.

Hi Agoes:

Beautiful shot. Very nice composition, specially with the boat and water ripples.It shows a magical moment caught at a perfect time. Well done.


simply stunning image, the boat works so well to lead us in, the colors, point of view, the sharpness are all top notch, wonderful shot,

Hello Agoes, wonderful piece of photography. Excellent composition, pov and colors. Well done. Cheers - Adil.

Hi Agoes,
Beautiful sunset capture with splendid landscape behind. The composition is fantastic, it was great to include the small boat on this wide river. The lines on the surface of the water made by the motion of the boat add more impact. Thanks for the note and for presenting this pictoresque place. Great job! TFS.

Hi Agoes, This is a very fine series, those colours are magnificent. You sure live in a great part of the world. Good details such as the sawtooth mountain profile indicates good clarity too. TFS. Murray.

What a stunning scene Agoes, I can't fault it. The boat, and it's wake are the perfect finishing touch.
Well timed, well presented.

Hi Agoes

I loove both of the images posted. I think this one has the edge mainly due to the V shaped ripples making a great lead in line. The colours, composition and exposure are all perfect



hi agoes...
nice photo...a well composed shot...like always :)
good job friend!

Magnificent capture of the sunrise!
i loved the ripples on the water as the boat is running.


Everyone who visited malaysia cannot see this picture and not remember the good souvenirs.

Beautiful picture.
Direction of the boat toward the sun... perfect.

Love it.
