Nature Serenity at Pasir Ris Farmway 3 Canal

pasir ris farmway 3

Peace and quiet – nature interlude at Pasir Ris Farmway 3 Canal

If you just take the time to sit and stare, explore the little corners in your  surroundings, it is amazing what you may just discover.

Here it is, one of my favourite place to visit in the morning. The bushes are overgrown. There is no street light to illuminate the surroundings. Every now and then, flaps of wings could be heard when flock of birds take flight. Insects chirp and birds sing their merry songs. Somewhere in the distance, a woodpecker knocks continuously at its home. Butterflies flutter about and tiny beetles fight for food.

The clouds are always looking grey in the morning whenever I visit here. But my heart is enlighten to see beautiful nature and such a slow pace of life still exists here. Serenity not to be taken for granted for sure.

So wherever you are in the world, do take time to check out your neighbourhood. Who knows what you may just discover. 🙂

Sunset at Pasir Ris Farmway 3

Sunset Panorama at Pasir Ris Farmway 3

The lalang grass are growing in big patches across the empty field at Pasir Ris Farmway 3.

As I passed this road on my way to Pasir Ris Park in the morning, I had this idea that the lalangs would be aglow during sunset. True enough on my way home yesterday evening, they were ablazed in the sun’s golden glow.

I just wanted to see how the photos turn up with no editing done. Taken with an Olympus PL6 with the 14-40mm kit lens.

If you pass this area, remember to snap a few photos before the lalang grass are all gone.

Dawn at Pasir Ris Farmway 3

Early Morning at Pasir Ris Farmway 3 Stream

This picture was taken yesterday’s morning at 6.56am. This stream, canal or longkang runs at a 90 degrees angle to the canal that is a shortcut from Pasir Ris Farmway 3 to Pasir Ris Drive 3. Though the water looks dirty, it harbours much life. I have seen turtles, fish and even snakes there. People fish here too. Bird watchers gather around this area as well.  It is a rustic oasis among the urban dwellings surrounding the area.

Beyond Lorong Halus Wetland – Pasir Ris Farmway 3

Beyond Lorong Halus Wetland – Pasir Ris Farmway 3

From Lorong Halus Wetland to Pasir Ris and back again

Two days ago, I posted I posted about cycling from Lorong Halus Wetland to Pasir Ris Park. Yesterday, I really took time to photo the scenery from the road out of Lorong Halus Wetland, the open field next to Pasir Ris Farmway 3 and the canal heading to Pasir Ris Drive 3.

The road from Lorong Halus Wetland heading to Pasir Ris

Lorong Halus Wetland to Pasir Ris Farmway 3

At the end of this road, take a right turn to head to Pasir Ris Farmway 3. On the right is an open grass field and on the left are industrial companies.

Canal at Pasir Ris Farmway 3

Walking Trail along the Canal River

Keep a sharp eye for the opening to this canal. The rooftop in that picture belongs to an industrial company. There is a long stretch of track that run next to that company and along the canal. Next time I will check where it leads to. I have seen people fishing here. There are reports of wild dogs around this area. I did see one on the road yesterday. Animals can smell fear. Act brave and non-threatening and they will leave you alone.

Rocks at River Canal

There are rocks in the water, maybe used as stepping stones while fishing. Beware of muddy soil and sudden rain. Flash flood can happen and the water can deepen in minutes so don’t get into trouble alone.

Sunset taken from the canal

The sunset was taken while still along the canal. If coming from Pasir Ris, this grassland is on your left. If coming from Lorong Halus Wetland instead, this is on your right. It was nearly 7pm when this was taken. The sun was about 35 degree angle on the horizon.

Sunset at Grass Field Pasir Ris Farmway 3

Rays of light from the sun shining on the land. People fish in this canal too. Cars are parked along this stretch of road during the weekends. Those trees that lined on both sides of the road have orange color fruits when ripe and people used their fishing rods to take down the fruits. This grass field will not be empty for long. Enjoy it while it is there. Guys come here to fly kites and aeroplanes during the weekends. Why can’t they make it into a park, an extension of Lorong Halus Wetland? Enough environmental habitat have been lost in our need for new housing and development. These green lungs are best nurtured and left as they are. Once lost, it can never be recovered.

The road to Lorong Halus Wetland

Heading back to Lorong Halus Wetland now. Lots of cyclists here during the weekends.

Back again at Lorong Halus Wetland.

Lorong Halus Wetland on the right

Lots of vehicles park here. Many birdwatchers too with their gigantic telephoto cameras keep their eyes on the bushes on the left frame. If you are keen to see and hear the wildlife here, best times to come are early morning before 8am and late evening from 4pm onwards when they are most active. Those trees are young yet. When they are a bit more grown, they will provide shade from the blistering heat.

So if you are at the Lorong Halus Wetland, go a bit further and check the greenery beyond. There are many things to discover if you just take the time.

Have a great week ahead!
