Semporna is a beautiful paradise for photographers, tourists who seek tranquility, scuba diving and snorkeling. It is in Sabah's east coast on the island of Borneo, Malaysia.
It claimed to consists and surrounded with 49 islands with 119 villages. The residents consists mainly of the ethnic Bajaus and they rely on the rich coral reefs for their livelihood and income.
An expedition done by the Semporna Marine Ecological in 2010, Semporna has been rated having the world richest coral reefs. We did not manage to get a glimpse of the coral reefs as our hired boat driver gave an excuse of rough sea. Very disappointing indeed.
The people of Sabah should be very proud that they are blessed with such a top marine eco-system in the world. Destructive conducts and practices must be stopped both at sea and land for the sake of protecting the nature of its beauty. The best way of protecting these coral reefs is through education, management and setting up protected sea areas. The government should increase enforcement against illegal fishing and control coastal pollution.

Art or Photography?

I once asked an Australian wedding photographer on his photography and wanted to learn something from him. He laughed and told me his works are not or what he said was not even photography. I guess what he meant was most of his works are mostly creative in nature just to create emotion and good feeling... sort of fairy tale style.
