Storm brewing Malaysia Style

Redang Island, Malaysia

Pina Coladas, cold beer, chicken satay and lashings of fried rice topped by a fried egg was the mainstay of my diet during the 7 days in Redang. Luckily its just the type of food I enjoy and since arriving home 2 days ago I've quite missed it all.

Todays shot shows one of the many amazing storms which occured over the rainforest of Redang. The rain was torrential and in combination with temperatures in the high 30's meant that most of the time the Island was like a sauna. Yesterdays clam lived just under the water in front of the island featured in today image.

Giant Clam in the waters of Redang Island, Malaysia

Redang Island, Malaysia

Returning to work after three weeks away is always likely to be a struggle. With the addition of Jet Lag, a seven hour time difference, and the heat of August, it is far from pleasant. The holiday was a fantastic though and there being no alternative, it is a small price to pay to have seen and experienced so much.

Todays image is a macro shot of a Giant Clam, of which there was no shortage just off the beach in Redang. The colours as exactly as they were and not the result of post processing. This guy was blue, others were green, grey, red and a whole range of sizes. Rather shy creatures many simply closed up as I approached so I was lucky to get a shot like this.
