I took a lot of photos yesterday. I brought along two cameras. I also brought the zoom lens and micro lens for my DSLR. So, I get to snap things from far and things close-up.
Bird on a tree branch far, far away.
Wild berries (inedible) in some bushes.
Some father and son moment. We went to the canopy walk in Penang Hill. It is a 2KM walk from the cable car station. A nice walk really.
Nice views of pine trees, cool breeze and fresh air. Penang Hill is no longer cold but it is quite ok with temperature around 24 degree celcius. But that’s because yesterday was a cloudy day and there was a brief spell of drizzle.
The canopy walk in Penang is very nice. You should try it. It is not as stable as the one in Sungai Sedim. The Penang Hill canopy walk is a little bit like the one I tried in Taman Negara many years ago. It is basically made of plank and net so it gives you that Indiana Jones feelings because you can feel the walkway swaying on top of the trees. You feel like it is going to snap and give way any minute. That’s why it is so fun. At some parts, you can hear it creaking as well. But compared to the one in Langkawi, it is not as scary. Probably, Langkawi canopy walk is much higher and colder so it feels much more spooky.
Another father and son moment.
