The Colours of Penang

View on black please!

 

Compared with the UK, Malaysia always seems to have beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Even when I went during rainy season, 100% of sunrises and 80% of sunsets were fantastic.

 

This particular sunset was when I was standing in the ocean to the north of Penang Island at a place called Batu Ferringhi.

 

Due to this being Malaysia, the water is always warm, so I could happily wade out to quite some depth (taking care not to stand on any crabs).

 

The sunset started out weak, but then broke through the clouds and gave me all sorts of different colours and patterns on the storm clouds overhead. At one point, the colours in the clouds ended abruptly at a huge black cloud in which you could see lightning strikes; very surreal combination.
