A few days ago, I saw some of my Facebook & Instagram friends keep posting photos of this stranded ship near a beach in Kuantan, Pahang and I wanted to go there. So on late Saturday afternoon, I ask a few friends if they want to go and only Faiz Zaki and Hendrik Sulaiman responded.
We depart at midnight from Faiz’s place in Putrajaya and it took us around 3 hours to reach Pantai Kampung Cempaka in Kuantan. From the parking, we had to walk for about 700-800 meters to reach the stranded ship.
There is already a group of photographers already shooting the Milky May and we were blessed with a clear sky when we reach there.
I had two camera setups – 1) Sony a7RIII with Sony FE 14mm f/1.8 GM lens for time-lapse and 2) Sony a7RIV with Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM for still photos. Here is my shot from the night. Enjoy.
I did not use the Sony a7RIV for time-lapse due to its higher megapixels which will consume more space and bigger memory card capacity. Even with Sony a7RIII, its 42mp is already too huge for timelapse photography! Luckily I had a 128GB memory card.
