My first visit to Tioman!

A buddy of mine had to go to Tioman for a business proposal cum recce. Since there was still a free seat left in the car, i was glad to tag along! The drive from KL to Mersing took approximately 5 hrs. We got there well ahead of our ferry departure time of 8:30pm so we had a bit of time to check out the little town of Mersing as well. The ferry ride was a boring two hours though. It was almost midnight by the time we checked in to Impiana Inn.

The weather was gloomy the following day, not great for landscape/seascape photography. On the day after though, it was bright and sunny. Perfect. So here are some of the shots I managed to snap.

I used a circular polarizer (CPL) in all the day shots which helped to make the sky bluer and the trees greener. No filter for the sunset shots.

  1. Those are very nice series! I like #7.
    Gotta plan for a Tioman visit :D

  2. Thanks LM. Tioman is still worth a visit. Food is not too pricey there!

  3. As your other buddy said to you elsewhere, you need full frame. Looks a bit tight *whistles*

    And yep, #7 bagus.
