The first beach when leaving Batu Ferringhi towards Teluk Pahang is the sandy bay of Teluk Pisang. The name really fits the shape, it looks like a banana. There is a small open air restaurant at the roadside, but no other facilities at the beach. At least so far no illegal water sport activities and no souvenir vendors. Here the locals are among themselves, almost no tourist makes it to Teluk Pisang, but it really is a lovely place. The boat at the left actually is a crab fisher who sell his catch to the beach visitors. The other boat is commuting around the island of Penang on demand

Superb shot! The brilliant colors, the two fishing boats serving as counterparts in a pair of focal points. This is one of the loveliest photos in your rich gallery.

Attractive colourful view in a sunny day, good pov to frame the view with separated the photo into three parts by different color from the beach to the sea and sky, boats and passengers as the bonus to the seascape, distinct photo, good shoot.

looking at this scene, it truly is peaceful.
while i was looking at it, i couldn't help but think how simple and stress free this life is - i'm sure they have their stressors too, it just appears to calming.
do you know what that black stuff is on the beach?
another warming shot, thanks for this one

A breathtaking seaview this time, Teluk Pisang is unheard off as compared to other popular beaches in Penang. I think it's good that we leave it that way so that the real beauty is intact without tourists invasion. I can see those crabs, shoe crabs. Excellent rich colors, that red colors really standout, fresh blue sky and golden beach. The composition is excellent and the detail is crispy throughout. Splendid shot. TFS

Dan se skratio kod nas je vec noc.
Lep pogled na plazu, ribolovce o more koje se na horizontu spaja sa nebom i nadolazecim oblacima.
Dobar trenutak snimka i tekst, lepe boje i fotografija, moje cestitke.
A day is shortened by us is already night.
Nice view of the beach, fishermen on the sea that are on the horizon meets the sky and the rising clouds.
A good time recording and text, beautiful color and photos, my congratulations.
All the best.

Perfect frame ! Could be used in any photo class to show the thirds rule... Beaultiful color contrast. Each third of the photo has a different color. Loved it.

Beautiful simple beach image!
Every single detail was so harmoniously and nicely placed together: the two boats, the sand, the sea, the horizon line, the clouds and the sky! All with excellent sharpness, exposure, pov, dof, colors, pp, contrasts and composition!
TFS - congrats!

Olá Urs, this is the kind of places I like to visit, where tourism hasn't fully arrived and life is still very authentic. Looks lovely to me, great capture of the two boats, good to see activity on the left one. Love the framing with this dark sand(?), not so nice for a bather on holidays but it's photogenic here.

ein sehr stimmungsvolles und auch sehr gefälliges Bild. Die Komposition ist sehr stimmig, besonders die schöne Wolke ist hervorragend zwischen den Booten platziert. Das Licht und die Farben sind wunderbar. TFS!

Calm and tranquility of the things I appreciate most in life.Simple composition but very deep, inviting us for a ride in that boat.

Lovely the shot of the local fishermen quietely going about their day in the beautiful surroundings of turquise seas and a lovely soft blue sky with an impressive bank of clouds sitting on the horizon.
Excellent colors and sharpness to this fine coastal image.

Très jolie composition, j'aime beaucoup les couleurs, les reflets que donne cette très belle lumière, jolie scéne de vie quotidienne

It must have been so pleasant to visit this beautiful place with just the local people and no tourists, no water sports going on, and no souvenir vendors. It is a very pristine and peaceful scene. The colors and composition are superb. Your note is informative and interesting as are all of your notes.
