We took the cable car to the top of the hill in Langkawi, Malaysia.
From there we have a panoramic view of the mountains and the blue ocean.
There is a cable stayed footbridge which takes you from one side of the mountain to another.
The cable stayed bridge has only one middle pier support off the mountains.
Standing on the footbridge, gazing out, all you have beneath you is the bridge deck and hundred feet of air before you reached the ground below.
You understand that is a big air gap under you!
The views are just beautiful in Langkawi, Malaysia.
As we strolled on the seaside boardwalk, we didn’t know what is around the corner.
The sunset was again ephemeral.
We ended up chasing the sunset – getting as far West as we possibly can; until the sun sunk below the horizon.
You can say this is ephemeral as the sun was exerting its last rays of light.
Equally, you can say this is timeless – as it has forever existed in my brain from that moment on.
Usually, I will try to submit several entries on the WPC’s weekly theme.
The first entry is usually about something which immediately comes to mind when reading the Daily Press ‘s WPC.
Then, I would go for a search in my archive to see what else can be submitted as well.
For this week’s challenge, the view from the top of a mountain on the Langkawi island, Malaysia immediately came to mind.
We were up on this mountain and the cable car brought us even higher up. From the top of the mountain, we saw a deep valley below and as a background, we have the blue sea separated by a layer of white clouds from the equally blue sky.
The steeply rising hill contrasts quite a bit with the valley below!

We can see serenity in many things.
This water lily in our hotel at Langkawi did invoke a sense of serenity.
I guess serenity starts with something external but then spreads inwards so that we achieve inner peace.
I can never forget the beautiful view at Lake Barrine, Australia.
These water plants in the lake gave me a sense of serenity which I have always remembered.
The sunlight seemed to shine only on the plants I like.

The theme for this week’s photo challenge is Shadowed.
Those who have been following me know that I love the island of Langkawi, Malaysia very much.
The two pictures here were taken almost at the same spot, viewing towards the sea.
The first one was taken when the sun has gone down and the seaside restaurant has turned on the lights.
The second one was taken earlier when the sun was still up, with the shadows of the chairs and the tables on the ground.
The pictures invoke during tones and moods. Hope you like them :-)

The theme Descent for this week’s challenge seems to be my favorite topic.
Here are a couple of photos taken a while back at a beach in Langkawi, when the sun was setting.
One photo shows the sun was just about the horizon; the sky was almost red.
The other one shows the sun was actually “dipped” into the sea with the sky becoming darker.
Please enjoy :-)
