This morning we started as early as 3:30am, picked up by my brother at about 3:40am, and then another friend. 3 of us headed to a small town called Tampaluli for breakfast. We arrived 10 minutes earlier before the shop is opened for business at 4:30am (The only shop that open so early in town). We had a quick breakfast and started our journey to the shooting spot deep in the village, about 10km away from the town. Just when we have set up our camera, we wasted no time as the first light is appearing at the horizon. Above was the photo taken at the early moment.
Guakon, is a photographers’ favorite spot as we can photograph the Mt Kinabalu, at the sametime has the sea of cloud as foreground. The weather was very nice to us and the cloud above the mountain was very pleasant for shooting.
We continue shooting, and the sky’s colors become richer, more and more colors started to appear. The mist below the mountain starting to evaporate. Below was how it look.
When the sky was brighter, we turn our focus to the mist in front of us.
Some closeup shots
Here is the mood when the sunlight catches the mist.
