<This Post contains 2 Pictures>
Two years ago about this time we travelled to South Korea.
It started raining when we were taking a cable car up Daedunsan.
Not far from us, we can still see the color foliage on the hill slope but we know we were heading into heavy rain as the sky was darkened further uphill.
The picture shows a big contrast in colors and mood.
The second picture was taken at West Lake about 3 years ago.
It was raining hard and you can see the ripples on the lake surface.
Further away is a Chinese style bridge – it looks amazing in the rain.
No tourist really wants rain in their trip, but chances are that there will be rain in our travels!
Many readers like the series on Huangshan, especially with the clouds partially covering the mountains. They seem floating below your feet.
The scenes look surreal, resembling Chinese paintings will tall mountains and clouds.
But still, as I have not visited Huangshan, I have to rely on photos taken by my friend Mr. Chung Kwok Fan.
Actually, you have to be there at the right time to see the sea of clouds.
All I have left is this last photo of Mr. Chung showing Huangshan with some pines floating down in the foreground.
Hope you enjoy it!
I love mountains as serene places where I can seek solitude and strength.
Up in the mountains of Yunnan, China, I found not only solitude and strength, but also beautiful mountain views.
I felt totally relaxed at the sight of distant blue mountains partially covered by the clouds and as a contrast, in the foreground, are green mountains. Clear and calcium rich fresh water came dripping down from the dams of travertine into the lake below where three Yaks were staying.
To take this picture, I went quite close to the Yaks. The image is made more interesting by the multi-colors on the saddles of the Yaks which are the colors of the local tribes.
Gazing at the scenery in front of us, we know our long journey to several thousand metres high up the hills was a worthwhile trip. . . . . . . . . . .
It was Spring up in the mountains of Switzerland, where everything, including the grass and leaves seemed new or renewed. . . . . . . . . .
