Mengkabong Bridge, Tuaran


Many people, including myself see this bridge as one of the favorite spot for landscape especially to take the sunrise with Mt Kinabalu in the frame. As early as 4:30am, we drove from KK to the bridge at Tuaran, to park the car before reaching the bridge and walked towards the middle point of it and wait for the sunrise.

This round, it’s different, I’m standing at the opposite side, trying to capture the sunset with the bridge in the frame.  The above shot was a result of merging 3 separate shots together (as the bridge is too long, even with my 17mm lens).

Later, we cross the bridge and reach the opposite side of the river.  While the sun is setting below the horizon,  here is the shot,

When it’s getting darker, the street light is switched on and I tried the reflection shot.  Here and below

Just before leaving, I took another closer shot of the bridge.

Sunrise at Dinawan Island


It was a cloudy morning. Can’t really get a clear view on the Mt. Kinabalu at the background.  I focus my shot on the ray.  This ray effect was achieved when the sun raised just above the mountain range.  Use a small aperture will create the look.  This ray effect can be created on any bright light source.

Happy shooting !!
