  • It’s nearly midnight on Redang Island, twelve miles east of Malaysia’s mainland, in the South China Sea. The waves are lapping the beach as it’s bathed in the silver blue light of the moon that shines bright enough to cast palm tree shadows across the sand. The water is still warm enough to go swimming and there’s nobody around.

    I’ve enjoyed a relaxed day of doing pretty much nothing aside a little reading, email catchup, and a dip in the coral sea that is in front of the beachfront chalet I’m staying in. This tropical Malaysian island lends itself well to the pursuit of relaxation, which is I suppose not really a pursuit at all.

    I took just one picture all day and it wasn’t very good, so tonight I went for a stroll along the beach in search of todays picture. What little clouds there were cleared in the warm still air as I slowly wandered along the beach with my feet in the warm water. At close to midnight todays picture found me.

    1. I wish I could have teleported and spent that day with you. Two subjects I’ve been missing quite a lot- Simon and Asia. Beautiful picture

      • Her tips are pretty good and her blog is nice too. Thanks for the link there James. As for having met her, nope I haven’t as yet, but I’ll keep an eye out for her on my travels!

    2. I absolutely love this picture ! This picture and ur comments really made me wish I was there !! 🙂 well off to tokyo tomorrow night. It will be nice to catch up if u happen to be at KLIA !

      • Hi Sameeta. I got the bus to Singapore instead of flying. I like to go overland wherever possible because you get more or a feel for the whole travel experience that way. I must say though, I prefer trains generally. Anyway, have fun in Tokyo!

    3. hey, one last, you know what, my friend use my camera to take the same shot but sun as the subject instead of the moon. it was taken around like 12pm and it looks almost the same as this picture.
