Sky Watch Fri - Sunset at Pulau Melaka

A beautiful sunset taken at Pulau Melaka, a man-made island in my hometown, Melaka. A bridal couple were having their outdoor wedding photo session near the Pulau Melaka Mosque. It's a beautiful site to capture splendid sunset. I stumble upon this place when I was driving around while waiting for time to go for a reunion with my primary school friends whom I have not met for over 23 years. One has to walk through some wild bushes and climb over a low dividing wall before reaching here. It's quite an adventurous discovery but can be rather unsafe too. It's best to go with some friends rather alone.

Thank God it's Friday! Wishing all of you a splendid weekend with family & friends! Happy Sky Watch Friday!

What a thing to stumble upon. You did it more than justice. So clear and beautiful. I hope the photos they hired were half as good as this!

What a marvellous setting. How beautiful it must be to get married here. Great you came upon it and took such a lovely photo to show us.

This is absolutely gorgeous. What a discovery. The Mosque is on of the most beautiful I've seen and the rocky coastline setting is wonderful. I'd love to see this in person, but I'm grateful for your photograph.

What a lovely picture that makes. The mosque is beautiful, set off nicely by the steeply sloping beach of large stones .. but to capture a wedding is very sweet!

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
