Scenic Sunday - Water Wheel

 
Just before sunrise

Just before the sun was rising
I stood outside the door
And listened to the river
And the sounds as the day began to awaken.
As I walked slowly along,
Drinking in my last sight of Malacca,
I was struck by the beauty of the shadows and reflections
Along the river bank.

This is the Malacca Malay Sultanate Water Wheel which turns during the day, and is silent at night. It is a replica of the original which was used to channel waters for the large number of traders.



Today's quote: Water is the driver of nature - Leonardo da Vinci.

Wow! That is so impressive. And a truly beautiful photo with superb reflections!

Sorry I'm late getting back to you. We really appreciate your awarding us the 101 Award and consider it a real honor...

But, we've decided not to accept any more chain awards. We just don't have the time to deal with them. We hope that you will understand, and we are proud and grateful that you thought of us for the award.

Best wishes always!

Oh very nice! I have to do more touristing in Malaysia - I grew up there, but didn't appreciate the beauty around...
