The likes and dislikes

This was how the dam looked in January.

It was then how it became during early March.

We had heavy rains last few days, but this was what I saw this morning. Time took away our likes silently, and gets us waiting patiently for the dislike to leave.

I wonder whether those monkeys would align with me on seeing water level to go back to normal. This place has now become their new found playground. Or they have re-discovered their long lost paradise.

But I was thinking differently. "Go swimming. Go swimming!" I murmured while having my camera ready for the dreamed shots.

Today was not one of my days. I failed to mesmerise these playful animals.

It was not a total disappointment after all if I was not too rigid with what to expect.

The rock looked attractive because of its shape. Being submerged and has negotiated secretly for a long time, this was the final shape it agreed with nature, and time.

It liked to be in this way.

When we are "not too rigid with what to expect" we can appreciate and enjoy what we do find. The reflections you captured are beautiful.

Just when the water levels drop you discover a whole new world! Those rocks are a perfect work of art, it goes without saying that nature's the best artisan. ^__^

Beautiful pictures, rainfield, even with a low level of water, and the rock is beautifully formed.

hi Rainfield, it's been a while. it felt good once again to share your journey with nature. been praying for rain for my country, draught is almost as devastating as flooding. how sad. :(

btw, we enjoyed Penang local food to the extent of not patronizing the hotel food at all. ;)

Rainfield, the rocks and reflections are gorgeous. You will find them swimming one of these days, I have no doubt. Very beautiful photos you shared with us. Thank you.

Time has a way of showing nature's face in very different beautiful forms. We don't like some of them, but we still appreciate the effort that time and nature took to show them.

I can see the water level has receded. There has been news of water level receding over here too. I hope the rain continues to come. I don't want water rationing.

It's good that the water level has returned to normal, but I like that interesting rock face you found that had been submerged. Perhaps the monkeys will go swimming the nexxt time you visit.
