Photo Hunters : Shadow

photo hunters

Today's topic is Shadow(s).

What I'm showing here is the reflection (or the "shadow") of the mother nature reflected in the river.

Eye soothing green rainforest.

Mother nature is beautiful.

All the photos were taken during my previous Rainforest Kayaking (Canoeing) Adventure in Sg Sarawak Kanan.

You have quite a skill in photography I must say. Canoeing in Sarawak? Safe one or not? Got buaya or not?

day-dreamer said...

Bee-yoo-tee-ful!! Hahaha.

jmb said...

Chen said...

tegbir92,
Thanks for your compliment. That was my first kayaking experience :)

ann,
Thanks for your compliment. Malaysia has lotsa beautiful resources :)

mistipurple,
Life is short mah, that's why must live life to the fullest (if possible lah). Well, certain things are beyond our control :P

Chen said...

chateau,
Thanks. It was indeed fun paddling along the river, enjoying the calm and serene scene of the rainforest with breath taking scenery.

angel,
I have a black little shadow following me where ever I go too. That black little shadow is none other than Ah Boy. Kkkkkk...

I love my little black shadow woh.
He so cute, how not to dun like him neh? :P

ehon,
Yeah, Sarawak is indeed bless with the natural resources. I really had a good time admiring the beauty of mother nature, listening to the sounds of insects and wildlife, looking at the greens and listening to the trickling water sound while paddling the kayak.

Kissedalotatoads,
Thanks :) Yeah, I enjoyed listening to the sounds of insects and wildlife, include the chipping sound of the birds.

Chen said...

criz lai,
Thanks Criz. I really enjoyed the breath taking, calm and serene scene of the rainforest during the kayaking session.

doreen,
Thanks for your compliment, Doreen.
I didn't see any buaya, so I presume none loh. The minds do not know what the eyes do not see mah..
Hhahahha.. Ignorance is Bliss? :P

day dreamer,
seeing the word Bee-yoo-tee-ful somehow reminds me of the song "You Are Beautiful". Kkkkkk...

jmb,
Thanks JMB. We encountered several fallen trees trunks in the river during our trip too :)

rinnah said...

These pictures look like they were taken by a professional!

Chen said...

may,
hehehe, sun = panas = sweat kaw kaw = tanned skin = sun burn at times. I only like sun if i'm outdoor, holding a camera and taking photos. Else I prefer windy and cloudy days. I only like rain if i'm indoor & zzzz :P

meeyauw,
Thanks Meeyauw. Yeap, that was indeed a fulfilling and memorable trip. My first kayakking experience :)

hanneng,
thanks Hanneng :)

julie,
Thanks Julie. Hope u have a wonderful weekend too :)

Chen said...

mark,
Yeah, Mark. I really had a good time enjoying the calm and serene scene of the rainforest. Just that my hand was tired after paddling the canoe for hours ;)

dragonheart,
That's true, dragonheart. It's indeed a wonderful place. This is something that we won't encounter daily. Most of the time, we only manage to see high rise buildings.

kenny,
Hehhe, those are indeed reflections mah. Can consider those as "colorful" shadows too - main ti(p)u a bit :P LOL

water angel,
Now i feel like going kayaking again. I took those photos almost a year ago, in early August.. at that time, the sky was still clear. Few days later, horror struck --> haze origin from Indonesia :(

Chen said...

winn,
yeah loh. After ym with u, i really makan the pizza. But the cheesy bites are not up to my expectation lah.. :P

u can still fit in your school uniform leh. I'm truly amazed. I sure cannot fit in mine liao.. No need to try also i know liao.. LOL

LB,
yes
Yes
YES
YESS
YESSSS..
so many yes that i myself get confused liao..
tick tock tick tock

So busy lah over the past few days.. now i feel so tired and exhausted.. Hopefully I can replenish my energy by next weekend :)

,
Mother nature is beautiful ;)

rinnah,
wah.. really ah? Thanks for your compliment. I'm floating high-high up for few seconds. Kkkkk...

yenjai.net said...

That is really superb photography skill

Chen said...

yenjai,
The sunny day and good weather also plays an important role --> and this contributes to the unwanted sunburn. Hahhahaa..

_butt said...

shadow of the nature. nice! how nice if I could just lie down on the boat and sleep underneath the passing trees... just imagining it is bliss.

Chen said...
