Kek Look Cave, Episode two

Mother nature has built her library in the same way we build ours. We can read and enjoy the shared experience and knowledge. We can spend our time as long as we wish, only if we want to. When we are willing to let go our imagination, there is no harm to have different understanding or interpretation on what we have seen.

When I walked through, I got to know the collections of the library were written through thousands of years of Nature’s evolution. Ours are traced back only to a few thousand years.

They are written partially by dripping water, some by the atmospheric influences, or tectonic forces. These are all great writers whose efforts do continue day in, day out without showing any sign of tiredness.

And of course, another great writer who I must not miss out is the moments of time. We can only see him through those speleothems or cave formations.

The library is not big in size, yet the collections of literature are many. It is up to our wisdom as how much invaluable knowledge we can learn.

Beautiful pictures and words. Some of those cave formations look like crepe paper or fabric curtains. I have always been fascinated by caves but also too scared to walk inside. Thanks for the tour.

Hello,

I love nature adventure so much. But then, there is one thing I am afraid of. Cave exploration. Probably because of the influence by horror movie that they did in a cave. Uwaaa... and another thing, maybe i just hate bats guano.

George said...

You got beautiful pictures of the cave. They to very well with your thoughts.

Salitype said...

Icy BC said...

Another wonderful post, rainfield! I can feel your emotion, spirit, and passion through this..(sh..don't say anything, even if I'm wrong)

diane said...

Nice pics of the caves and an interesting text to go with them.

Diane AZ: Crepe paper? You mean Halloween inside a cave?

Willie: These are the reproduction of Canon 1000D, most of them no flash on.

George: The formations come in many shapes and styles, they are beautiful pieces of artwork.

Salitype: Those hang from the ceiling or wall are stalactites. Those rises from the floor are stalagmites.

maricar: Have you registered as a member of the library. Membership is free.

Kirigalpoththa: They are beautiful.

Icy BC: Sh.... I won't tell anybody that you are right.

diane: Welcome to MyJourney. Hope you will get joy after the visit.

Bengbeng: Sarawak is so near yet so far away from Penang. I have been to Sabah for Hiking trip at Mt KK, but not Sarawak.

Maybe you can do some promotion for this state, I hope I'll be there one day.

There is so much we don't know in life and nature... Being appreciative is the best we can do... ~bangchik

VanillaSeven said...

Awesome looking cave ceilings. Honestly I am scared to venture into caves like these.

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Rainfield, excellent photos and I love the writer metaphor. You are truly a sensitive and wise soul my friend.

AVCr8teur said...

So many different textures, patterns, twists, and turns. Some parts look too dark to inside without a light, at least for me. You must be the brave one.

Ginnymo said...

Awesome looking cave Rain!! We have some deep underground caves around here and I've been to one a couple times in my life. They are so neat to look at. Nature is amazing! Great photos!!

Life Ramblings said...

those rock formations are extremely unique.

rainfield61 said...

Bangchik: You have the wise words.

VanillaSeven: Actually it does not require adventurous heart to wenture into the cave, it is safe.

Poetic Shutterbug: The writer metaphor is just another interesting way to present my post.

AVCr8teur: No, I am not a brave one, I am as ordinary as you all. lol.

Ginnymo: Nature is amazing! Now and then, day in, day out.

Life Ramblings: Yes, every single piece is unique. Like us.

The Retired One said...

Awesome photos of some fantastic caves!!

Ratty said...

A very beautiful place. I hope to visit the inside of a cave at least once more in my life.

Gallicissa said...

Rainfield, I find such caves a bit creepy. I explored a famous one here named Wavulpane and I didn't particularly like the smell inside, with all the bat guano.

Sharkbytes said...

What a great place! And I like how you described it. Some of those photos are very dramatic!

Kirigalpoththa said...

I love those last two photos. It is beautiful to see how the light and shadows making a beautiful pattern in side the cave!

Thanks for sharing this Rainfield!!

Cher said...

great sequel! will there be an episode III?

Mei Teng said...

Beautiful interiors of the cave. Your first photo has very interesting cave textures...that's the wall of the caves?

rainfield61 said...

Ratty: At the first glance, I thought you would like to visit the inside of "this" cave. I am sure your dream will come true in one day.

Gallicissa: There are no traces of bat guano inside the cave. Bats must not like huge crowd of visitors.

The Retired One/Sharkbytes: This is one of the great places in Ipoh, or in Malaysia.

Kirigalpoththa: I feel great you like the place and photos. Canon 1000D helps a lot on the photography.

Cher: Ha Ha!! Just wait and see, there may or may not be an episode III.

Mei Teng: Thatis the ceiling of the cave. The textures come in many shapes, great for photography.

Pacey said...

Oh, these are beautiful photos rain. I've only been to one cave coz am not much into I get so claustrophobic and yes there different kinds of things you'll see inside.

Tabib said...

Beautiful bird -Blue Rock Thrush, thrive there.

Ayie said...

it's beautiful but it gives me the creeps...looks eerie too with the darkness

Ayie said...

happy weekend!

Autumn Belle said...

These are all gifts from Mother Nature for us to enjoy. Very often we stand in awe in front of these real majestic wonders during the moment of our visit. Later, when we get back home and view the photographs, we see them from another perspective and admire the structures all over again. Isn't this wonderful?

Kimberly said...

I love the photographs! It is wonderful that you take the time to see the small things rather than be overwhelmed by the larger views.
