If you like to hear the gentle sound of gravel under your feet, delicately crunching as you stroll along the path; If you like to hear the complex song of the many birds communicating freely from the trees; If you love the stunning scenery that makes you look around, high and low, with your mouth slowly opening; If you love the peace of such a setting - then Taman Gelora in Kuantan is just the place to nourish your senses with beauty.
Enjoy my photographs of a saunter around the beautiful Taman Gelora:
I don't know how many times I've photographed this place, but each time the pictures are different, and each time, they come out even better! There's always something new to shoot, a different viewpoint, a new area, an alternative angle, a better idea.
At this point in my photography session, I ventured out behind the swathe of trees to the coast, where I discovered just how far out the tide was:
|I walked a good hundred yards before I found this fish hanging on to life in a small pool of water|
|It's kind of hard taking pictures when you're in the wilderness of the sea floor, with the sea nowhere to be seen. Kuantan town can be seen on the horizon.|
|The distance to the trees show how far I'd walked from Taman Gelora, out onto the sea floor, and I'd still not gotten close to the sea|
|I found these sea shells slowly moving around in small pockets of water which had been left behind between ridges of sand as the tide went out|
|Here's a picture of some weird and wonderful sea life. These "stalks" were popping up everywhere|
|This was the most enduring image from the sea floor. It shows a man in the background busily putting up his nets before the tide came back in later that day. Here is where our boiled fish for dinner begins.|
After staying long enough to appreciate the silence at sea, I made the trek back to Taman Gelora, where my appointment with the trees really began:
|This tree stood out from the crowd behind|
