Clouds over Pulau Langkawi 

Malaysia, View of Pulau Langkawi, April 2011

Langkawi is a group of 104 islands in the Andaman Sea, where only Pulau Langkawi and Pulau Tuba are inhabited. Local folklore has it that Langkawi derived its name from the eagle, "helang" or "lang" in Malay language, and from "kawi", meaning reddish brown. Thus Langkawi simply means reddish brown eagle.

There are a number of legends about this pure and tropical island: http://www.langkawi-beaches.com/langkawi-folk-tales.html

They promised us a lot of eagles, but we didn't see them, so I photoshopped an eagle into the picture.

Thanks Soumen.
Yes, over a year of absence! Several accidents and our moving to an appartment, which needed rigorous renovation, were the reasons for my silence. But I now have again time for my true hobbies!
Although I have an FB account (made many years ago), I am not a fan of FB. Too chaotic for me. But I wil have a look!

Soumen, I spent a few hours at FB inorder to familiarize myself with the various options. Apart from the illogical structure of the site, the FB groups like FT and FN do not offer an easy option (qerhaps no option at all!) to keep track of the photos you have already submitted. I decided to quit again and to stay at FT and FN.

Welcome back Peter. I too in FB I feel like a fish in an ocean. But due to other issues I have closed the Facebook account. So I'm back here again.
