In the highlands of Malaysia, mist envelops the rainforest canopy creating a beautiful habitat known as cloud forest. The gnarled trees covered in mosses and lichen look ancient standing in the cool montane air. Ferns, orchids and other epiphytic plants attach themselves to every tree and rock surface. In the late afternoon, clouds gather in the lowlands to form a thunderstorm, which gradually makes its way into the hills and mountains. The grumble of thunder resonates, as birds call softly from the forest, and the short, melodic whistles of tree frogs punctuate the tranquil soundscape.
