Photographer's Note

Especially during monsoon season very heavy monsoon cumulus clouds will build up in the harbor of Penang which actually is part of the very busy Strais of Malacca - a 805 km long and 30 to 200 km wide stretch of water between Peninsular Malaysia and the Indonesian Island of Sumatra. This busy shipping lane was named after the Empire of Melaka that rules over this archipelago between 1414 and 1511. The northern end of this strait is Penang while the southern end is Singapore
