On this week’s topic SHADOW,
I would like to share with all the greatest source of shadows making.
It is none other than our favorite orb – THE SUN.
I managed to dig this photo out from my dusty old photo albums.
This was taken during my trip down to Mersing, Johor, Malaysia.
I forgot what year it was but I guessed it may be 8-9 years ago.
This is the biggest shadow that ever cast over the sun.
It is a shot of the SOLAR ECLIPSE.

Since I am at the topic of the sun,
I would also like to share with you how the sunlights
during the SUNRISE can have special effect too.

Here is a snapshot of SUNSET on top of the Penang Bridge.
With a length of 13.5km, it is amongst one of the longest bridges in the world.

powertwinb: It's nice to see you here again. Thanks :P

ipanema: Thanks. There are no tips on taking such shots. It's trial and error and speed of course. Wonderful captures might not last as long as they could.

lissa: Thanks for the compliment :)

tegdirb92: I wondered too. Maybe it could just be a hectic work day and they would just want to rush home under the comfort of their beds :)
