Stork on a rock

Stork on a rock

Looking very menacing, his eyes seemed to follow me as I slowly walked past him. The rock he was stood on was very close to the path around the pond. It was almost as if he was saying, “this is my pond and these are my gold fish.” Thankful as I passed him and quickly snapped this photograph, he stayed perfectly still. The orange shapes in the pond behind him are the hundreds of gold fish that were living in the water. He obviously isn’t a hungry bird.

Petronas Towers main entrance

Petronas Towers main entrance

Once the world’s tallest buildings this is a more close up view of the twin towers. Taken from the opposite side from the KLCC Park it shows the main entrance to both the towers and the Suria KLCC shopping mall at the base. Stood only about 100 metres give or take from the entrance made it impossible for me to include the reflective pools in the foreground, even with my wide angle lens.

Interior of the Thean Hou Temple

Interior of the Thean Hou Temple

The Thean Hou Temple was difficult to get to using public transport but it was well worth the effort. I went for the view looking across to Kuala Lumpur’s city centre. What surprised me the most was the sense of peace that the temple had, even with crowds of tourists there. Above is the interior, showing the main altar with Mazu in the centre. Mazu is a Chinese goddess of the sea.

Greater Flamingo

Greater Flamingo

Flamingos are fairly strange looking birds. They look quite unstable with there long legs as they wade through the water. This bird was photographed in the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park. The park had dozens of these large creatures. Looking down on the bird from a distance meant I was able to isolate him from his friends, giving a plain and un-distracting background. In my opinion the fish you can see in the water are what make this photograph a little special.
