After loads of travelling for work, took a short break with family to the Beach. We went to the Avillion Resort in Port Dickson. http://www.avillionportdickson.com/

It’s a beautiful place and we took a seaview room with views across the Straits of Malacca. The sea breaks against the stilts beneath the rooms and gives a soothing sound during the night. Overall, we had a well deserved break from city life. A recommended place to take your family as apart from the beaches, there are plenty of activities to keep you busy.

The time of year was just perfect, with the leaves turning to yellow.

I was in Shanghai a few weeks ago and I made it my photographic mission was to capture the City skyline of Pudong. I got up for a very early start to capture the dawn light. Standing on the Bund, I and aimed my camera over the Huangpu river towards the skyscrapers of Pudong. Some of the lights were still on in the buildings and the sun was just below the horizon.

This photo was taken in the evening. I waited for a passing boat to add a bit of motion to the image.
