Photographer's Note

Continuing our trip down the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia, here is a different point of view of the nice city of Melaka. I took this photograph while anchored for the night and chose this place, because I wanted to get shots of the Mosque, as the sun was going to set.

A sailboat is not the best platform for night photography and this one was taken just before it became too dark, since we can't use a tripod.

Soon after this picture, a fisherman was quite unhappy of my location, when our boat was caught in his fishing net.
Tidal currents are quite strong here and they use long nets, sometimes over one kilometer, drifting along the coast.

The poor man had quite a struggle to untangle his net from our anchor chain and he asked me why I had decided to anchor right there... I felt a bit ashamed to tell him that it was to photograph the Mosque...

So I dedicate this picture to the fisherman, hoping to be forgiven.
