Shadow and Reflection

The 18-55mm lens shows a wider view of my favourite dam. I can see the water level keeps going down. And if it continues, I shall know how deep it is very soon, though this is not be a good discovery.

It is a hot morning. The monkeys seem only happy jumping and swinging on the opposite side of the dam. It must be great if I could chance upon these monkeys swimming and playing in the water one day.

Until then, I have to satisfy myself with this lonely swallow. It is perching quietly but visible between the bare woods.

And both of us, me and my shadow, still feel so good in this simple morning.

Awesome photos, looks like it was a beautiful morning to visit Cerok Tokun. I wonder if the swallow enjoys watching the monkeys.

Great photos of the lake. Is it above the dam? It would be cool to see the monkeys. Neat shot of your shadow.

Maybe the monkeys might let your shadow play with them one day. Great pictures again today.

wenn/Glennis:
Am great to reflect and to be reflected.

Kirigalpoththa:
I had this first picture when I had difficulty to capture my shadow. This reminded me that I actually owned a 18~55mm lens. Sigh...

Diane:
The swallow must have a total view of the surrounding. What if I can fly...

fufu:
This swallow will greet you Happy Birthday on 22nd March.

eileeninmd:
Yes, it is above the dam. I happened to see swimming monkeys in the websites, so much of fun. What if...

The Retired One:
Can you see me?

Ratty:
They will then chasing after my shadows. Haha...

Eng:
It needs some quiet moments to have a daily reflection.

Icy BC:
Thanks for the comment. I like this very much: nothing is better.

Maybe if you swim first then the monkeys will follow? :) Nice reflection!

Willie a.k.a Reptoz said...

gee...if only you had your 70-300mm. I'm sure the bird will look clearer.

Cheryl said...

I immediately spotted your shadow! Sounds as if it were another great day. I would love to see photos of the monkeys!

Mei Teng said...

It has been reported that weather's expected to be dry and there might water shortage. Not a good piece of news.

Nice pictures and they give me a relaxed feeling. In the last picture, your shadow, the sky, and the water have become one with nature.

CH said...

Love the reflection and your shadow. Ordinary is beauty.

Bengbeng said...

VanillaSeven:
You might be right. I saw pictures in Internet showing some swimming monkeys. Look so great.

Willie:
I hope I have this bigger lens.

Cheryl:
The monkeys are the permanent residents over here. I shall try to shoot some hilarious one for you.

Mei Teng:
I have a cooler night today after a raining evening. Hope that the weahter forecast is wrong.

AVCr8teur:
Love your description. They are "All in one".

CH:
I shall not overlook the ordinary. Thanks for your reminder.
