Langkawi Legend : The Lady & The Crocodile  またまた伝説公園のワニ


Nikon D3000 + Sigma  70-300mm  @ 70 mm — 1/40 sec, f/5.6, ISO 200.


I snapped this photo during our relaxing walk at Lagenda Park in Langkawi yesterday.Things had changed quit a bit in the few days since we had last been here.The air was much more crispy,cold, and clean (of yeah! the area had been cleaned ). Here we are, and I let Naomi  fooling around with the guardian of Lake Pregnant Maiden - the legendary white crocodile before I took her photo. Well, most people are awestruck when they see these statue, and just one look into those mouth and red eyes will give you chills.
またまたクアの公園に来ました。この中、結構、ワォーキングやジョギン
ろんなきれいな鳥もいて、ちょっとした歩にも最適です。説の白いワニ君と一緒に記念してみした。いい年して上にっかってしまいした。

No crocodile here ! Local fisherman was seen casting their net for shrimp, mullet, flounder or maybe crab. This pix was taken near the Eagle Square at Kuah Town. A tip from him : Do not throw near rocks or oyster beds or you will rip your net ! Awwww..

地元の漁師?カニでも採ってるのかな?

It was really hot but the day was so beautiful @ Eagle Square Kuah, Langkawi Island.

クアの中心部から少し外れたフェリーターミナル近くにある、巨大なワシの像が建つ公園。ランカウイ島が発見されたとき、ワシ(マレー語でラン)が大理石(カウイ)の岩盤から飛び立とうとしていたという伝説が今に伝わっています。そのためこの島はランカウイと名付けられ、島のシンボルとして建てられたのがこのワシの巨像です。
