Teluk Bahang Dam (translated as "Heat Bay Dam") is the largest dam on Penang Island, Malaysia. It was built to provide an alternative source of water supply to the Ayer Itam Dam and the Botanic Gardens Waterfall. It is located on the southern part of Teluk Bahang. From its crest, one can enjoy a scenic view of the northern coast of Penang Island. The Teluk Bahang Dam was completed in 1999. The dam has a height of 58.5 meters and a length of 685 meters. The crest is 12 meters thick, allowing for a roadway to be built along it. The Teluk Bahang Dam is often used as the venue for international dragon boat races.

Nice colours, and a nice scene, however I am not sure about the square crop. A typical landscape crop may have worked better for this, giving the feel that we are seeing the entire vista

On many occasions,...Philippians 4:8,ESV, "Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things."
