Photo Hunt: Blue

November 1st, 2008 · 5 Comments

This is so far the latest photo I posted in this blog as most of them were from my archive years back. Took this on my recent Penang trip. The dam was high up on the mountain. Did you know that this was actually a village? Now the villagers are relocated and the houses are still under the water, they did not demolish it. Interesting.

Love the blue sky, blue water and green blue hues of the mountain.

    So much beauty in blue, but also sad too!

    That’s pretty! They built a dam where my father worked in the 80s, and also ended up covering a house or two with water in doing so. It became a popular spot for divers, though! Enjoy your weekend!

    All that calm blue is deceptive, hiding peoples homes like that.

    Dianne, it does look sad, very deserted.

    Jenny A., this kind of place is really great for scuba divers but I’m not sure they allow it or not.

    Alice Audrey, yes… Very deceptive.

    Thanks for coming everyone.

    [...] The scenery is too wide to fit into my camera. This is just a portion, I tried to use the stiching mode in my camera but it didn’t turn out well. You can read about the story of the dam in my previous Photo Hunt post, Photo Hunt: Blue. [...]
