Did you know that some people consider Brunei Darussalam as the “Land of Golden Sunsets”?
This was what Saifulizam Zamhor, the founder of a Brunei-based photography service, Visual Pro (@_visualpro_), said when ‘Neue’ asked him to share some “Instagram-worthy” spots where people could catch a sunset in the Sultanate.
“The sunsets in Brunei are truly something you have to see to believe,” added Saifulizam, an experienced photographer from the now-defunct English-language daily, The Brunei Times.
He pointed out that the usual go-to locations for landscape photography are at iconic mosques such as the Sultan Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Mosque and Jame’ ‘Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque that can be both found in Bandar Seri Begawan.
Share your #BruneiSunset photos
Saifulizam has provided ‘Neue’ with the following photos of Brunei sunsets from his personal collection. Enjoy!
“People here in Brunei are lucky in the sense that most of the beaches are easily accessible. Towns here aren’t that far from the shore. The most ideal for people to get a clear sunset shot would be at the beach. However, be warned that you may have to deal with sandflies,” he said.
When asked to share some photography tips with ‘Neue’ readers, Saifulizam said, “Make use of the variety of different landscapes around you for your sunset photos. For example, having a sunset photo with a plane flying across the sky or using greenery (trees) as a foreground.”
“If all else fails, it does not hurt to take a friend who is familiar with photography for your next sunset-spotting adventure,” he added.
We invite ‘Neue’ readers to share their sunset photos by uploading their photos with the hashtag #BruneiSunset.
