The Old Man and the Sea?
The sea was sparkling – there were twinklings reflected from the sea.
I like birds in flight – but my photographic equipment is not good enough for capturing them.
The first one shows an egret in flight and the second one has got a fish in its beak.
The challenge from the Daily Post this week is Minimalist.
I like photos which are simple but beautiful.
We were at the seaside, waiting for the car ferry which took us from the enchanting Hvar Island to the picturesque medieval town of Dubrovnik.
It was still early in the morning. What I can see was a clear blue sea, blue mountain, blue sky and pebbles on the shore which also looked blue.
To me, this is Minimalist!
The theme for this week’s challenge from The Daily Post is Descent.
We have been walking for over an hour on the walls of Dubrovnik.
It was a delightful experience. There was no clouds in the sky; the sun was shining and basically there was no way to hide.
We were thirsty, the idea of descending down the steep stairs to the café shop did came to mind.
Fear of descending the steps finally won; we just carried on walking and finished the walk as quickly as possible!
Here are some stunning photos of an eagle catching a fish from the sea.
The three pictures were taken by my classmate Mr. Chung Kwok Fan.
A magnificent eagle swooped down, zeroed in on its prey.
While having undivided attention on its prey, it dived down, slowed somewhat and momentously suspended itself in the air.
Its action was so quick, by the time you saw it doing that, it already has its prey caught in between the legs.
Throughout this act, the spectators were thrilled. It was exactly the moment a photographer has been longing for.
Again, congratulations to Mr. Chung for taking the photos.
These are photos which should be submitted to the National Geographic – something which Mr. Chung has repeatedly declined.
