Some Pictures from Putrajaya Wetlands

For those who intend to take part in the Putrajaya Wetlands photography competition, I had a list of places for taking some shots in Putrajaya.  But for the Wetlands, all I can think of would be the lake where the swans/pelican reside, the observation tower and the flamingo pond. Well, here are some shots taken recently.


A bunch of flamingos taking their afternoon siesta …


A view from the top of the observation tower … it was a hazy day and kinda frustrating, so I had to look at this “zen” like view to clear my mind =)


Why frustrating?  Well, it is not just the weather but the attitude of the people, both the visitors as well as the maintenance of this wonderful place.  You will see litter around, e.g.


Badly maintained picnic tables, e.g.


And even missing drain covers …


It can be a beautiful place and it actually is!  Just that these minor setbacks do get to my nerves from time to time.  I guess it is also due to the hot and hazy weather that amplifies the mood.

If you intend to go over, do be a little careful.
