Photographer's Note

This is a picture taken from atop Penang Hill. To get there, you have to take the furnicular train which will take about 45 minutes to reach more than 400 meters above sea level.

At the top, there are some interesting things to do but usually, people go there to enjoy the panoramic view of Penang island. From there, you can also see the other part of the Penang state which is called Butterworth. It is also known as mainland Penang.

The top part of the picture is Butterworth while the bottom part is Penang island. Penang island can be reached from Butterworth via the 13km Penang Bridge which is Asia's 3rd longest bridge. The other way is to take the ferry service which commute between mainland and the island regularly.

Cargo ships can dock either on the island side (Swettenham Pier) or the mainland side (North Butterworth Container Terminal).

I took this picture on a tripod at 7:30pm and set the exposure to 2 seconds to capture all the lightings of the building on both sides. If you look closely, there is a big flaw in the picture which I'm not going to tell you ;)

I like this picture and I hope you like it oo.

Cheers!
