Bagan Lalang Part 1
When we went, it was just the start of the fasting month for the Muslims, so although it was a Sunday, there weren't that many people on the beach. The two boys had so much fun running around, catching the small crabs and building (or rather trying to build) sandcastles while the three sisters were busy with our cameras.
The place was perfect for my wide angle lens with its never-ending stretch of sandy beach. The blue sky and interesting cloud formations were just right for any black and white or colour pictures. I hadn't taken many pictures with my wide angle lens lately so I was rather happy to have the chance to use it again.
Distortions are a problem when using the wide angle lens but sometimes I like the distortions because it brings an interesting new aspect into the picture.
I realised I took too many black and white pictures and had to remind myself to switch to colour. I also didn't use any polarizing filters for the lens which was a problem as the light was rather strong, creating harsh contrasts in the pictures (although I like the effect in some pictures).
More pictures coming up in Part 2 but I am running out of things to say about Bagan Lalang....
