It had been a while

.


Di hadapan rumah kami

Cuaca di Kuantan kurang baik dengan suasana yang redup dan seolah-olah berjerebu dalam masa 2 bulan kebelakangan ini. Keadaan berubah 4 hari yang lalu dan saya berpeluang untuk mengambil beberapa gambar walaupun waktu yang terbaiknya terlepas.


Di Satu Pagi dekat rumah kami


3 days before leaving for Kuala Lumpur, we went trekking at the Bekelah Waterfall. Jerangkang and Bekelah streams originate from the same source that is Gunung Serundum and its 2 sisters. We walked and climbed for about 2 hours before settling ourselves, taking a dip in the cold mountain water. We brought along nasi dagang and cakoi which was unfortunately not enough for our hungry stomach. Trekking back was fast as it was going downhill. However we had to be extra careful as it rained the previous night making the rocks and the path slippery. It was a thrilling experience, away from the busy city with the greens and clear cold water to ease the stress and aching muscles.

Maman cooling himself at Bekelah


Momad having a good time exploring the rocks


It had just been 3 weeks the girls had gone back to Volgagrad and I felt like it had been 3 months. As for me, time is running slow at the moment. We sent Momad to his college 2 weeks ago and that was when we got lost to Kuala Kerling. I had nothing much to write, just missing my daughters and son. May Allah give them Guidance, protection and His Blessings.


Bersedia untuk ke Kuala Lumpur- barang-barang siapa ye?

Saya suka gambar no 3. Imej kaki tu tampak sebati dgn objek sekeliling . Harmoni sekali

so happy to see you're back to posting up your photos. love the photo of perahu and sun - really love that one. keep on posting your pictures ikelah!

pycnogenol said...

Kenapa kedua-dua image terakhir di kelabukan, dan bagaimana cara membuatnya?

Ikelah said...

itu bukan kaki malin kundang yang sebati dengan batu.

i just managed to snap that subject 3 days ago on my way home from sending the kids to school when the morning sky was clear with the big red sun shining. it was abit late as the sun was already high.

the picture of coconut trees was converted to duotones.

pycno
sengaja 'diembosedkan' kerana empunye rasa agak tak selesa ianya dipaparkan dalam bentuk yang asal.

embos dengan menggunakan mana-mana kedaifoto yang terdapat dalam komputer.

mynn said...

kena belajar lah duotones ni. I wonder if there's a similar function in GIMP (sadly, i dont think so). um, i am so tempted nak lanun kan photoshop cs2 ... seriously! arrrr <- pirate sound.

Ikelah said...

mynn

kalau ada orang nak pergi UK, boleh dikirimkan. kalau pos, alamatnya tak sampai sebab mereka strict open any pakages yang hantar CD/DVD.

maybe ada freeware lain yang ada offer duotones, tritones,... etc. saya pun bukan pandai sangat, cuma cuba-cuba dan guidelines pun tengok megazines.

azahar said...

saya tertanya2, kerap dr ikelah jadikan kaki sbj objek gambar. apa kaitannya? & kali ni kaki tu empunya siapa..hehehe

selamat menyambut ramadan dr ikelah sekeluarga.

Mama Sarah said...

baru je nak kata "teringat gambar kaki" on your redang trip. tapi sdr azahar dah sebut dulu.

pycno, are you thinking of "embossing" yourself in the future soon?

ikelah, gambar embossed "Pagi di KLIA". It took me a while to figure out the image!!! I thought the computer was still loading the photo.

p/s: why do you have to mention nasi dagang?

pycnogenol said...

Mama Sarah - Even if Pycno were to 'emboss' himself, Mama Sarah will still recognise him.....too 'fofular' lah Mama.

Tunggu lah jumpa 'in person' nanti...Biar pengsan Mama Sarah nanti...he..he... ;)

pycnogenol said...

Ikelah - Actually Pycno sempat tengok gambar-gambar tersebut sebelum empunye merasa tak selesa, lantas, ianya di'emboss'kan.

Cantik gambar-gambar tersebut, dan Pycno ingin memberi komen bahawa anak-anak Ikelah dan Tabibah, ada yang ikut Ayah nya, dan ada yang ikut Mak nya.

Did Sofi actually got through with ALL those baggage? Guess the girls brought back with them food to last them the whole of ramadhan? ;)

Paul Moss said...

The image of the sunrise? Is the lack of glitter done on purpose? I`ll say both the images aren`t good. It`s either as you said due to bad light or you messed up during postproduction.
The last image is of Momad and Sarah? Momad looks almost exactly as you. Even the track top is the same. I remember you had the orange Adidas track suit with black stripes.

saj je kaki sebagai rujukan dari mana saya berada. tanpa kaki boleh juga tetapi ia menjadi gambar pemandangan biasa.

mama sarah
gambar ini asalnya tak embos dan mungkin ada yang sempat lihat.

nasi dagang tu sebab sedap dan tak cukup. biasanya untuk piknik ringkas macam ini kami beri nasi dagang/nasi lemak dan sedikit kueh ataupun buat sandwich untuk bekalan. air biasanya air kosong dan air berbikabonat.

alhamdulillah dan dan sarah tiada masalah dengan bagasi masing-masing walaupun ekses berkilo-kilo. sekarang ini hand luggage kena diberitahu bilangan beg dan berat tidak melebih 8 kg. bayangkanlah kalau satu hand luggage penuh dengan buku dan yang lagi satu dengan macam macam.

paul moss
both were taken around 7.40 am after sending the kids and the sun was high. it was not the moment of sunrise but more of a red sun still giving reflection on the water with 2 stops down to correct and flash to light up the boat.
i went low to get the boat thus depriving much of the reflection and glitter from the water. without going low, you cant get the boat with sun already high.

as for post production, it was with the first converted to duotone, black and brownish. its simply individual preference.

dith said...

Boogs- haha that famous orange adidas jacket that garnered him the nickname at campus: OJ or something, cant remember. (by the girls of course! Not me tho. I didnt bat a wink!)

Mama Sarah said...

DITH who's OJ? O J Simpson kah? The tracksuit reminds me of cerita Kill Bill (tak pernah tgk habis though)

pycno you all are making me more and more curious. It's killing me!!!

kenakelayan said...

:D Takpe Mama Sarah, kita pun tak jumpa Pycno lagi... hehehe samalah kita.

Bertuah sungguh access baggage dapat lepas. Kat sini terlalu strict. Yang nak bawak naik dalam cabin pun banyak pantang larang.

Ikelah said...

dith
yer ke? dengar lain.

mama sarah
you really have to meet him. full of surprise for you anf mynn. memang you tak sangka nanti.

kenakelayan
actually with God's help. these 2 kids helped us a lot while at home and God will surely protect and ease them from any burden.

raya ni you buat appointmentlah untuk jumpa pycno. appointment lagi. :)

pycnogenol said...

Aiyoo, Raya ni program packed lah Ikelah. Banyak shooting outstation. ;(

Memang nak layan si Kenakelayan ni. Tapi Pycno hanya mampu melayan selepas Raya.

Mama Sarah dan Mynn, balik lah cepat ke Malaysia. Dont forget your DSLR tu. :)

Mama Sarah said...

grrrr¬rr, shooting eh pycno?

i hope you are not Jins Shamsuddin

Ikelah said...

he is younger then the genie. ;)

mynn said...

weekend baru sempat nak catch up balik dgn blog ikelah ni.

ikelah
thanks for this: "both were taken around 7.40 am after sending the kids and the sun was high. it was not the moment of sunrise but more of a red sun still giving reflection on the water with 2 stops down to correct and flash to light up the boat.
