“A beautiful photograph has the power to inspire, move, and evoke powerful emotions.”

Find true beauty in the mundane

“If you want to make some great nature photographs, make it right in your own hometown.”

The nature photography enthusiast, Jordan Lye, has came to his sense when he listened to the above advice from a great photographer during his trip to Iceland.

Since then, he started to travel around his hometown which was given a beautiful name – Pearl of the Orient, for chasing after every single perfect shot of the nature of landscape.

Through his extensive collection of photography, you can see the beauty of Penang including the night sky with stars, meteors and moon at Balik Pulau paddy field, or the first ray of sunlight from Penang Hill, and even the golden hour or blue hour sky above the heritage buildings.
