These jellyfishes are almost invisible.
I can only see the faint outline of their bodies.
They float on water as if souls float in the atmosphere.
But they are beautiful!
Not too many of the leaves in trees have changed their color.
A couple of trees with yellow leaves stood out; they were a stark contrast with the trees in the background.
Sometimes, I feel a bit of melancholy with the colors of Autumn, however, they look beautiful – romantically beautiful!
Autumn was in the air and the color foliage was just enchanting.
The golden colors of the hillside was mingled with some other colors like red, green and brown.
While the original photo was beautiful, I have tried to make it even better by converting it into an oil painting – something like an impressionist painting.
This was the impression I have in my mind :-)
I would like to share these two images of Autumn.
The black and white image of the same photo shows a more solemn look and a bit surreal.
Please enjoy :-)
The Photo Challenge of the Daily Post this week is Refraction.
This is a photo which I have not shown to anyone.
This is what you see when you view down the clear calcium rich waters of the lakes in Jiuzhaigou, China.
This is also a perfect example of Refraction ( this is not to be confused with reflection which some people have submitted for this photo challenge).
When I studied physics in high school, I understand that when a wave travels through medium of different refraction index, its speed of travel changes according to the medium, this is detectable when say, light (as a wave), travels in water and air etc.
The picture shows not only fishes in the clear water but also tree trunks which have fallen into the water. The tree trunks look bent from their original straight alignment when immersed in the lake water – a good example of refraction.
If you look directly over the lake water, the bottom is the lake appear shallower, again, a result of refraction.
The Daily Post asks us to show a picture to show our understanding of refraction; this is perhaps the best example that I can give!
