    Re: Trees in water

    Quite a nice arrangement of branches Antonio,

    What is the cause?
    Looks like permanent flooding; e.g. a valley used as a reservoir, rather than a temporary 'flash flood'.

    Cheers,

    It is in from a lake in Malaysia, Langkawi.

    It is an artificial one. The trees were there before the flood.

    This was photographed during our travel to Malaysia, Borneo some years ago. We visited a tradicional longhouse - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longhouse#Borneo_longhouse - which you can see in a not so good photograph in Batang Ai National Park http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batang_Ai_National_Park

    http://maps.google.com/maps?q=batang...ional+park&z=9

    We stayed there for some time talking to people and having a meal. People living in this longhouse were there waiting for us expecting some tips as well as gifts the guide offered.

    It almost reminded me like a visit to a house in the suburbs of a large city of the World where poverty co-habits with richness.

    Ah yes, I thought they looked a bit 'long dead' and had a waterline on them - but I guess they will eventually rot away, collapse and disappear from view.

    I am of an age (and place) where such projects in England aren't really within my memory span.
    I may have a vague recollection of newspaper headlines about the flooding of a UK valley, but this must have been back in the sixties. I recall from Donald's posts of dams that Scotland were doing such projects in the fifties, but that's about when I was born, so I wasn't reading newspapers then

    Thanks,
