In the early hour of 6 am of Apr 30th a group of 21 enthusiastic photographers, all members of the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) set out for their meeting point - the Seremban R & R. The outing was organized by the MNS Selangor Branch Special Interest Photogroup. The locations to visit were Muar, Pt. Jawa and Sg Balang. All three locations offered diverse subjects and settings to stimulate the creative juices of the group.
Photos listed below are my photo 'contribution' to document the trip. Hope you like what you see.
Although without the anticipated red sky it was still glorious sunset over Tanjong Emas, Muar
Muar river scene in the late evening
Muar river scene just after dusk.
Muar river was a hive of activities ranging from canoeing, river cruising or local folks having a leisurely stroll along the pavement lining the Muar river. Also a good location for photographers to capture all the action!

We came upon a wedding outdoor shoot in progress at Tanjong Emas, Muar and decided we should also join in. :-)
Sunset over Pt. Jawa. Pix was taken during my trip in Dec '09.
This time around we were not so lucky. The sun had shifted and set over a cluster of mangrove trees effectively blocking out the horizon.
