I was travelling to the incredible Bako National Park in Sarawak where one can find the rare and endemic Proboscis monkey (the ones with the big noses). Aside from the crazy boat ride getting to Bako, this park is Malaysia's finest and a must see. While there definitely are many colorful scenes to capture, this particular view out at the ocean through an old mangrove forest was particularly beautiful and haunting to me.
