I will be back 我会回来 ...


Until today, I have to drive 
at least 1.5 hours to get to the nearest Lotus Pond
...
few days ago, I found one 15 minutes from my home,
you bet I was excited,
too bad when I arrive at the pond,
it was noon and I was
drowned by the hot sun
barely within 30 minutes of photographing
...
I will be back, for more 
...

Lotus under the Hot Sun 烈日下的莲花 ...

Lotus under the Hot Sun 烈日下的莲花 ...

Jalan PJU 1A/1, Ara Damansara Park 
阿拉白沙罗公园 
今天找到了一个从我家不到十五分钟可到的拍荷景点,
Nikon 70-300 non VR 虽然便宜,烈日下又大风,的确不容易拍,
拍了不到半个小时满身大汗,只好下次再来了。

They are still beautiful. Being just 10 minutes away it will be easier to time future visits to take advantage of better light.
