  • Description: Penang National Park is a metropolitan national park and probably the smallest national park in the World. However, "interestingness" is abundant here. From my last photography outing, i started at Muka Head beach by shooting moving clouds at night, follow by Milky Way when the clouds subsided, then greeted by a magical Sunrise, and also spectated a few resident White Bellied Eagles catching fish off the sea. Hiking North West for a mile, one will reach a beautiful functional light house on top of a hill. While on the other side of the park is another interesting beach called 'Pantai Kerachut', where you'll find a meromictic lake, a turtle hatchery, and beautiful pier, and a spectacular Sunset.

    Very colorful capture David! I agree, it's a great place to visit/photograph. It's a shame that the "middle bridge" gave way. Would have been neat to work with the entire area. Still a fabulous...
