Kampong Binsuluk, is a fishing village. It sits along Sungai Binsuluk, a river which flows passing the coastal town called Kuala Penyu. Kuala is a Malay term used to describe the part of the river which meets the sea.
This view was taken from a Bailey bridge running across the river, just before sun set. The theory is, the sunset is always dramatic when the clouds are thick and heavy.
There is ferry or boat service that plies between Kuala Penyu and the Survivor Island or Pulau Tiga.

I love this beautiful photo. Light and deep colors are superb. I wish there was a near-by object to break a little bit this symmetry. Anyway it is an excellent shot.

A beautiful painterly quality to this photo of yours, Bani. Nice subtle light and good details provided by the waterside housing. Almost reminiscent of a watercolor painting, very nice work you did.

Hi Rabani, beautiful light for this end of day, the reflection is nice, I like the way the clouds divide the lake, excellent depth, nicely composed, well seen.

Not easy to catch a mirror effect different. Yellow color of the clouds in the water with a small breeze floating on the water.
I learned something new reading your following photogapher's note «The theory is, the sunset is always dramatic when the clouds are thick and heavy». Thanks, (Jean-Pierre)

I like the reflections of the clouds in the water & the color contrasts between blue & orange. Bagus sekali!

Hai Rabani, I like the color and the reflection of the clouds. The houses along the river complimented well with the green trees.

A great view of this lake with a beautiful reflection also. The trees to either side frame the village well. Maybe a little PS fill flash would bring out just a bit more detail in the dark areas.
