Ulu Geruntum

Chanced upon this location about a month ago. Nice waterfall and very friendly village of Orang Asli. There was no name given so I just referred to it as Geruntum Waterfall.

Native kids having their bath(?) and fun at the same time.

Mucking around with the zoom ring on the Canon EF-S 10-22mm gives you a motion-zoom effect.

Bath time over when big sis called them home.

The lady who was at the kitchen is so friendly. The kids here too are the friendliest OA kids I have came across.

Tiny mushrooms near the waterfall area.

Wings over Kuala Gula (Raptors)

One of my favourite bird subject, raptors!

Have yet to identify this one.

Brahminy Kite


A nesting pair... the nest is nearby.

Having sushi for lunch.

Wings over Kuala Gula (Storks, Egrets)

A Stork (don't know what type) perched high up...

.. and in flight.

Coming in for a branch landing.

Such a lovely white. Someone commented the wings look like that from an angel. I don't know... I have not seen angel yet.

Landing shots...

Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, The Red Arrows

The Red Arrows are renowned throughout the world as ambassadors for both the Royal Air Force and the United Kingdom. Since my keen interest in aviation (rather anything that flies) in my younger years, the Red Arrows have stood out in my memory as the premier aerobatic team in the world.

One would do the darnest things to pursue their interest and this is no exception. For now, not only to see the 'dream team' in live-on-site action for the first time but also to capture the moments with my camera, another passion.

First 10 mins or so would be formation flying. These guys are so good! I know some people have trouble even just walking straight.

Then the real action begins....

The two looks almost like glued together in flight...

... but that was just the angle illusion. It really was like this:

The grand finale.

The BAE Systems Hawk T1 is the RAF’s advanced trainer, and has been used by the Red Arrows since 1979.

This picture for Ladyhawk .... his name is on the side of the aircraft :P
