WILD LANDSCAPES from BIRD'S EYE VIEW IN SABAH
Many of us have left footprints on places we visited, in Sabah, Malaysia, in the island of Borneo! where we have seen its beauty with our own naked eyes as we stroll along its streets, sit on its sandy beaches, hike its jungle trails, dive down its lively colourful underwater or look out into its green pastures while the cool breeze dump our faces.
These appeals are accessible as we are stationed on the same ground level and it’s lovely to fathom especially when you are at the right place and at the right time.
On the other hand, perhaps it has crossed our mind to consider looking at things from a different viewpoint just like, what might a souring eagle see when it is up there?

Take a view by helicopter, then we have an idea of how a place looks like from above and many would agree that the sight down there is beauty beyond words.
When an eagle soar through Sabah’s archipelago, through his eyes he sees stunning view of various shapes and colours…

Take your photography passion into high levels and take amazing shots of Sabah from above.
Reduce vibration and blur in your photos. The factors that influence vibration blur are shutter speed and ISO setting. The easiest way to avoid vibration blur is to use a fast shutter speed. On a full-frame camera 1/500th or 1/750th of a second.
Set the exposure mode to "S" for shutter priority or "Tv" for time-value priority and the select between 500, 640 or 750. The camera's internal meter will determine a lens aperture for correct exposure. Plan to be at least 100 to 300 metres and above the subject in a helicopter.
