Here are two images from Langkawi, Malaysia.
Both convey the tranquility of the place.
I am sure, however, that readers may prefer one over the other.
Please enjoy :-)
Beautiful pictures are developed from negatives in a dark room. So if you see darkness in your life be reassured that a beautiful picture is being prepared.
The beautiful negative above is based on an image of the beach, palms, sky, islands etc. taken in Langkawi.
The original is also depicted.
In my view, negatives can be as beautiful as originals.
Having gone through the cave, we were delighted in seeing the mangroves and the sunlight again.
Please enjoy :-)
The Photo Challenge this week is Beginning.
Beginning is quite an abstract notion to show in a photo.
This signifies the beginning of a brand new day . . . . . . . . . . . . . a day full of hope, warmth and peace !
The Daily Post’s challenge for this week is Horizon.
The Challenger defines horizon as: “The space or line where the sky meets the earth. So many places where the sky meets the earth around the world, and millions of interactions between two elements. It can be water, a city skyline, a forest, a wasteland, a desert, a sunset outside your bedroom window“.
The horizons in the following pictures particularly speak to me:
The New York City skyline has always been my favorite. Not that I don’t like the skyline of other places like Hong Kong which has got high hills as the background; the New York City skyline allows you to have an unobstructed view of the buildings in the horizon.
Horizons allow my eyes and my brain to relax and intrigue me as to what lies beyond. . . . . . . . . . .
This week’s challenge is Sea.
I am a sea lover.
The sea means many things to me. Like my mood, sometimes, it is serene and peaceful; sometimes it is wild and free.
I have seen seas crashing in, eroding islands and breakwaters; luckily, I have never seen a tsunami and never want to see one.
My photos below are more about the calm side of the seas.
I particularly like Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem about the sea:
“My soul is full of longing
for the secret of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean
sends a thrilling pulse through me.”
When I am anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea.
The soft murmuring sound of the waves gently lapping on the beach gives me a calming effect which is unlike any other thing in the world.
The Adriatic sea is the bluest sea I have ever seen.
To me, they are like poems of the sea.
There are also some songs / music about the sea which I like. One of these is Ebb Tide:
