One of the ubiquitous feature in KL skyline apart from KL tower is Petronas towers or the twin towers. One can’t go around the city without crossing this tower. So by the end of the trip, one could be tired of its sight which is visible from most parts of the city . My first close visit was during the KL city tour. It was around noon when the clouds were cast. The walls of steel reflected the clouds and the building looked like a shiny steel gray building. We stopped here only for a photo session. Our driver said that he could get tickets for the following morning to go up the tower. We were open to this idea and thought it would be nice to go up the skybridge to have a view of the city.
Since our itinerary was very tight the next day, we decided to skip the skybridge as by then we had viewed the sprawling city from the observation deck of KL tower.
But we often awed at the lighted version of the twin towers when we passed through it and decided we would come here on the final day to click some photos.
And so on the final day, in the evening we went to Petronas. I was initially reluctant to walk till there as i was tired of its sight. But I was wrong, seeing it from afar or even by the day and seeing up close in its lighted glory are two different things. And you would struggle trying to get the entire building in one frame on your camera.
It was funny to see people around lying on the floor and squatting to get the picture in one frame.
As for me, I loved watching the lighted twin towers sitting in the small platform in front of it. Besides, me were so many foreigners who silently watched the gargantuan glory. The lighted beauty, the well-maintained garden, pathway and the sound of only the fountains radiated a sense of peace in me. Unbelievable but true, cos just behind me, across the glass tile wall was the traffic of the city. For that magical feeling alone, Petronas deserved a separate post from me. It was very difficult to pull myself out of the place. Absolutely sublime moments those!
quite a task to get the towers in a single frame from close quarter
After many attempts we did or my family did get them in one frame. we got better pictures when our family posed.
