Borneo trip 2013 | Sabah pt X : Coral Reef


    i met  Leonard. a member of CouchSurfing. ( more about couch surfing : click here )
    it was the first time i heard about this community called CS.

    map of the coral site drawn by Esther .

    Leonard showed me a photo af coral reef taken by himself in Tanjung Aru
    during low tide.

    luckily there will be low tide phenomenon again next morning.
    and it was the lowest tide of the month!
    so we planned to go there at 6a.m.

    During this low tide phenomenon , water level fall so dramatically ,
    making it possible to walk 200-500 meters towards the sea beyond normal reach.
    interestingly is that they just found out about  the coral reef near Tanjung Aru
    ( believed to be destroyed years ago , and now rediscovered ).
    



    we were there at the correct time to see this beutiful blue-purple tinge of the sky
















    dipped my fisheye lens into the water to take this shot


    fish




    i was so excited to take this photo , that i didn't realize that
    i was just one feet away from one of the deadliest snake
    in the world , the blue banded sea snake.
    " few miligrams of venom can kill 1000 people "

    Your pictures are so well taken. Have you been to any other parts of Sarawak?

    I actually found a web link that helps me a lot to make my decision making when it comes to travel.
