Family Outing Photoshoot - Penang Hill

Most of us photographers seldom have the chance to shoot with our family beside us. Today I had that chance when my wife, son and sister in law decided to tag along with me to Penang Hill for an early morning sunrise shoot. 

We woke up quite early around 5am+ as I had to feed the dogs and prepared to catch the first train up to Penang Hill at 6.30am. We were the first to arrived at the station and the 2-way train ride cost us RM18 (2 adults and 2 children).

The timing of the train was spot on and by 6.30am, we were on our way uphill in the newly launched trains. The speed of the trains have improved significantly as compared to the old ones and the air-conditioning was excellent. Gone were the days of smelly humid fully packed trains.

We reached the summit just in time to catch the sunrise although it was not really one of the best ones. After about 15 mins of shooting, the fog started to roll in and we could no longer see the view of Penang island. 
We potter around the place for awhile before heading back down and the heavens poured down just as we reached the base station. The family thoroughly enjoyed the trip and can see my son and wife happily snapping away with their cams during the whole trip.

Overall quite a nice photo outing and managed to capture some photos and video. Till next time...
