Have a nice day/evening/morning everyone :)

I see this same view almost every weekend and different weather yet it never failed to amazed me how beautiful this is.

 

Carizzo Plain National Monument 'Super Bloom' - Hurricane Crocker Spring Road, Temblor Range - 4-15-2017

This shot was taken very early in the morning using a tripod from our balcony. Mount Kinabalu spent most of each day covered in clouds so to see the summit you had to get up at daybreak. Even then the clouds are beginning to slice across the landscape

 

Mount Kinabalu is a prominent mountain on the island of Borneo in Southeast Asia. It is located in the East Malaysian state of Sabah and is protected as Kinabalu National Park, a World Heritage Site. Kinabalu is the highest peak in Borneo's Crocker Range and is the highest mountain in the Malay Archipelago. In 1997, a survey using satellite technology established its summit (known as Low's Peak) height at 4,095 metres (13,435 ft) above sea level.

 

THANKS FOR YOUR VISIT HAVE A GREAT DAY

It was really a tiring journey to the top. Took me 6 hours via the Mesilau trail. Whoohoo, I can finally say this - Been There, Done That! In photo: Mountain view @ Mount Kinabalu, Sabah, MALAYSIA.

Part VI of set Passenger seat {Beautiful Sabah}.

 

Passenger seat view.... This photo was taken on the way back from Keningau, the largest town in the interior, about 130km from Kota Kinabalu. At this point, we were going up a hill in the middle of some rain. The altitude is probably 1,500 ~ 2,000 feet. The road gets foggy by 2pm, and showers are regular and short.

 

This area is surrounded by the Crocker Range, the average height of which is 1,800m above sea level (that's right, about 5,400 feet). This is mainly agricultural land... paddy, vegetables, rubber, oil palm and previously, it was a timber town.

 

My friends, this is the Kadazan-Dusun heartland. You have not seen Sabah until you visit the 'soul' of this land. Welcome to Sabah, 'The Land Below The Wind".

 

Traditional kadazan dance..... this dance is pure seduction... the rhythmic sound... the twitch of the hips... the flick of the wrists...

Can you believe that the waterfall is only 45mins away from my mom house yet its only my second time to go there. I passed by this place so many times but i never really go and check the place.

The water is not really flow much when i was there, but i intend to go again next time.

i was standing on the swirl hanging bridge to shot this view....struggle to balance myself and the Cam...Just Loving the fantastic greenery and the Banjaran Crocker in the distance. The weather was a bit hazy the whole time while i was there. Otherwise we can enjoy more bluish layers of the mountains.

 

Location: Kg Banjar, Keningau Sabah.

Explored. thank you dearie friends!

 

Happy Sunday!

Steep descend down the Crocker Range at sunset. Photographed from the back seat of a 4WD on a return journey from Keningau, a town in the interior of Sabah {131 km from Kota Kinabalu}. The sunset was spectacular. At the higher points of this route, we were above the clouds. The average altitude of the Crocker Range is 1,800 metres (5,400 feet) above sea level.

 

So, before leaving Keningau, make sure that you have topped up your radiator.. because you will be in 3rd gear coming down. The engine slows down the car. The brake pads are easily toasted. More countryside scenes in Passenger seat {Beautiful Sabah}

Unidentified Spider - Mount Kinabalu National Park, Malaysia

 

These small to medium spiders were common on the low vegetation on the slopes of Gunung Kinabalu at night.

On my way down from visiting my mom today, i saw a beautiful rays and i'm glad i stopped to shoot it. Thanks always for your support everyone.

The different color of the sky during sunrise giving us energy to the better life..

We need to save our river from being polluted people,,,

Mount Kinabalu (Malay: Gunung Kinabalu) is a prominent mountain on the island of Borneo in Southeast Asia. It is located in the East Malaysian state of Sabah and is protected as Kinabalu National Park, a World Heritage Site. Kinabalu is the tallest peak in Borneo's Crocker Range and is the tallest mountain in the Malay Archipelago. Mount Kinabalu is also the 20th most prominent mountain in the world by topographic prominence.

 

In 1997, a re-survey using satellite technology established its summit (known as Low’s Peak) height at 4,095 metres (13,435 ft) above sea level, which is some 6 metres (20 ft) less than the previously thought and hitherto published figure of 4,101 metres (13,455 ft).

 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

unpolluted river comes from crocker range of North Borneo ..beautiful river located around 50 miles from capitol city and took more than an hour to get here..

Part VIII of set Passenger seat {Beautiful Sabah}. I am posting these drive-by images every weekend.

 

Passenger seat view.... This photo was taken on the way to Keningau, using a new road which cuts the distance by half but it is too steep for small cars. My friend's car, a 6-month old Honda Accord 2.4V, stalled at the last peak. (See note on photo.) It just refused to go further in "normal Drive" mode. I had better comfort in a 4.6 L turbo-charged Toyota "Ninja", perfect for this type of terrain.

 

This route is less populated as the terrain is very hilly. This is the Crocker Range, and we were basically travelling along its slopes. The average altitude is 1,800m above sea level. (That's right, about 5,400 feet). This is mainly agricultural land... paddy, vegetables, rubber, oil palm and previously, it was a timber area.

 

Keningau, our destination, is the largest town in the interior, about 130km from Kota Kinabalu. At this point, we had just left a 'pit-stop' at one of the few roadside canteens.

 

My friends, this is the Kadazan-Dusun heartland. You have not seen Sabah until you visit the 'soul' of this land. Welcome to Sabah, 'The Land Below The Wind".

[Traditional Dance] Sumazau ( Borneo Sabah )

Located off the north-south highway that runs between Ranau and Tambunan.

 

What's more interesting about this photo isn't about the aircraft's engine or its propeller. Just beneath the engine nacelle, lies the majestic Mount Kinabalu (13,435 ft) in the distance, which is the tallest peak on the Borneo Island and the second tallest mountain in Southeast Asia.

 

The reason it was possible to photograph Mount Kinabalu was because the turboprop commercial aircraft flew only between 17,000-25,000 feet, making it easy to spot the mountain peak from the distance.

 

Had I been in a Boeing 737, it would have flown across the Crocker Range at above 30,000 feet, well above the dense cumulus cloud formations - and the mountain would be virtually impossible to spot from that height.

 

Photographed en route from Kota Kinabalu to Tawau, on board a MASwings ATR 72-500 turboprop.

This is the b/w version of an earlier photo titled "Engine braking". This photo was taken on the way back from a trip to Keningau. It was taken on the same day as "Passenger seat" VIII & IX.

 

In this photo, were were heading into a foggy section, and into a sunset. The photo was shot directly into the sun which was shielded by fog. The time was 6.04pm. At this point, we were still at rather high altitude. In fact, we were just above the lower lying clouds. I will be posting one or two photos later this week that will show exactly what I mean. the feeling was like looking out the window seat of a plane.

 

I should kick myself for not doing b/w versions of many of the photos in the "Passenger seat" series. Well, now I will have an extra 10 for my stream. :-)))

This colorful peak can be seen from Crocker Springs / Hurricane Rd. The photo was taken from a 4WD road off of Crocker Springs.

Yesterday's superb Arctic Mirage, above the Tetlin Hills of Eastern Alaska.

Here, as the rays of light bend into the cold, dry air, part of the range has actually broken off and is spreading to the right. I've had folks glance at these and say ... "Wow, Weird Clouds!" .... NYET ! .... There was not a wisp of a cloud in the sky yesterday morning.

( I'm sometimes hesitant to post images of this fascinating phenomena, since these days, many people might glance at something like this and assume it's been digitally manipulated, or "photoshopped") This is real, ..absolutely faithful to nature.

Although cropped, this is exactly the scenery visible from the roadside yesterday.

When I'm seeing these, I find myself hopelessly fascinated .... It makes you ponder furiously the very nature of reality, vision, matter, light ..........

Between 1906 and 1909, the famous polar explorer Robert Peary spent a fortune pursuing an elusive land mass he called "Crocker Land", in the high Arctic, that he had glimpsed on an earlier expedition..., which was actually a mirage formed above the ragged ice pack. His Eskimo assistants had warned him that this was the case, but evidently he was not good at listening to those who knew better.

Sky Mirages are probably also responsible for many UFO reports ... A bright planet on the horizon, it's shape thus distorted by a Fata Morgana, can certainly produce a good UFO, for folks not accustomed to mentally interpreting such sights.

A "Fata Morgana" is an atmospheric mirage,commonly seen in frigid Polar regions , caused by complexly arranged thermal gradients, within a temperature inversion. The word, from Italian, means "Fairy Morgan", and alludes to Morgan LeFay, King Arthur's sorceress half sister, who legendarily had the power to create crystal palaces in the air.

( To see how these hills looked 20 minutes later when the mirage evaporated, scroll back 6 images in my photostream ... that is exactly the SAME place!) If you carefully compare the two, you'll notice that the mirage seems to actually be piling a reversed image of the scenery on top of the view we normally see.

This colorful peak can be seen from Crocker Springs / Hurricane Rd. The photo was taken from a 4WD road off of Crocker Springs.

Golden Birdwing {troides amphrysus, female}. A common butterfly in Malaysia, Sumatra and Java. It is usually among the first butterflies to be seen in the early morning, and the last to rest in the afternoon. The wingspan is 15~18 cm. [ More information at ButterflyCorner.net. ]

 

This photo shows a female Golden Birdwing visiting the Lantana. The photo was taken at the Kipandi Butterfly Park, Sabah. This park is sited on hilly slopes of the Crocker Range, some 36km from Kota Kinabalu along the old route to Keningau town in the interior. The altitude here is 2,100 feet (700m) above sea level. It also has a farm for native orchids, pitcher plants and other exotic flowering plants.

My fellow photographers capturing sunrise and the rolling clouds at 1395 meters above sea level. We were certainly on cloud 9 that morning!

 

The place was accessible by 15 minutes drive on 4x4 truck (or about 30 minutes walk) from Mount Kinabalu Holiday Camp.

We stayed for a couple of nights in a small village called Kundasang which is in the foothills of Mount Kinabalu on the edge of the National Park. This mountain is fairly shy the summit is usually shrouded in cloud apart from early mornings. …..No problem set the alarm for six, walk out of the room and from our balcony a perfect of view of the mountain. Took some close up shots with the DSLR but this image was taken on an I Pad think it worked quite well.

Feel a little less negative about flickr now apart from the stupid home page but I have leant a way to avoid it. I do feel the actual image quality is very good

 

I will be away this weekend catch up with you all next week.
