Never tired of viewing clouds in the mountains.
As it is just heavenly!
I know time is running out for this weekly challenge, so I am putting in another submission.
The sun has barely risen. Light rays were coming in at a very low angle.
On the Koh Samui beach, not a soul was in sight.
I took this photo of the water which seemed to be having a very interesting texture.
The ripples from the waves were something which I have never seen before!
Can’t leave this challenge yet.
This posts contains two images; both taken at the Hiroshima Memorial Park.
There was a long building which contains exhibits of the bombing of Hiroshima .
I noticed that there was a long line of columns to support the building and they go in pairs.
Although the columns are in reinforced concrete, the texture of the columns have a wood texture.
They have taken very elaborative efforts to come up with a textured formwork against which they cast the column concrete, so on striking of the formwork, they left a timber texture in the columns.
Although, this technique is adopted in many places, this is especially done here as this memorial place clearly warrants it.
Some readers like reading only the first photo in my post without actually going into it..
You are recommended to peruse both pictures in this post.
We were walking up a slope which was filled with sulphur and other deposits on the ground.
The sun was setting. Gas and smoke were coming up from the ground.
But the truth was we were in an area of extreme beauty with colors not only from the Autumn foliage but also terrain covered in an ash of sulphur.
The view was astonishing – it was full of texture too. I thought I was walking on alien grounds!
This is also like a Palette of Colors in the Southwest of the States which I have posted recently.
This is what I saw when I reached the top of a mountain in South Korea last Autumn.
These mountains have the shape of the ears of a horse and in Chinese, they are called the Horse Ear Mountains.
The exposed slopes was rugged, but the lower half of the picture was covered with a red colored vine.
Where one color / texture transitions into another, there stood Guanyin (of a smoother texture) with a gesture of Peace in her hands.
So, this is my second submission on the theme of Texture.
This week ‘s WPC challenge is Texture.
To refresh myself on the meaning of texture, I looked up Wikipedia and got the following:
The word texture means: what things are made of and how they feel. Textures can be described as “rough”, “smooth”, “hard”, “soft”, “liquid”, “solid”, “lumpy”, “gritty” etc. The word “texture” is used for many different things. It can even be used in abstract senses, e.g. for music and poetry.
Here is a picture of my favorite destination – Angkor Wat.
The picture shows different texture of the wall, tree, pavement, rock carving.
The texture on the ruins are just incredible!
