[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ubah Shelter, 2nd shelter along the Summit Trail is a hive of furry activities. You could see fur balls with long bushy tails darting from one bush to the next and making a quick grab and run for tidbits scattered by tourists making the climb.

It's also the favorite spot for photography target practice. Coming to this shelter, you could probably see a few photographers lying low studying and shooting Alvin's distant cousins. It's also a good spot for photographers to shoot at low light at something that is so skittish.

Except for one little squirrel. He just stood there, looking almost wondering. Maybe because, Ramdan wasn't shooting him, and about to turn back for an urgency at home. The other trip we had, I almost had to drag Ramdan away from the shelter as it was getting late.

On the way up to base camp which was another 5km to go, the rest of the team kept looking back at the trail, every so often hoping to see a smiling face coming back.

We must have had stops so many times that, we made base camp after nightfall at 8pm.

Wow, a beautiful shot of this little squirrel!
Blurry background, sharp squirrel and a good composition, makes the photo worthwhile!

Assalamuallaikum Rabani,

Saya suka macro ini. Colors just nice. Cantiklah gambar ini.Susah mau komen.

i don't think he misses Ramdan. His peer must have told him that Ramdan had earlier captured the former before that budding pro photographer turned back for an urgency.

through his beautiful and shining eyes he is actually asking nuts from you as Ramdan lured his peer for a lovely shot.

a nice capture.


...Hiiiilo Ranau, keberatan bawa itu bayang-bayang wahyu... :(

Assalamualaikum bang,
I love the 'faith' color here, looks more natural than what I have in my shot.

I couldn't really remember how things going while having the supposedly fun shooting those Alvin's counsins, especially this one. The shocking urgency might had caused a bad sector to the memory track. And, seeing how good Ruslan had done in the real assignment had been making the bad sector grows wider - need some formatting for a hope of possible healing. I had missed a great opportunity of gathering valuable experience, and the adventerous thrill and fun...

Inda pa, mengKiulu dan menSAC la nanti, itu event pun banyak wahyu-wahyu juga tu. :)
