Last month has been the wettest January Hong Kong has seen since records began 132 years ago, the Hong Kong Observatory has announced.
As of Friday afternoon, over 260mm of rainfall had been recorded, the Observatory said, making this month the wettest January since 1884. Previously, the wettest on record was January 1887, when 214.3mm of rain fell.
The first picture is the mist outside my window. I have changed it to Black and White to make it look more moody.
The second picture was taken in the portrait format. There were so many raindrops on my window pane.
Go away, El Nino!
Not sure the reason, but I used to associate Pink with being vibrant.
Here are several photos with pink as the principal color.
One is a sort of kale with vibrant pink colors with I saw at the Kadoorie Farm, Hong Kong.
The other pink flower is a common flower in Hong Kong.
The one with bubbles was taken off a painting in Beijing.
So much so for “Vibrant”, I am ready to move onto a new theme.
My last post focused on a few peach flowers.
Here is the bigger picture .. . . . . I am beginning to see the trees.
They look so vibrant and full of life.
In the Lunar Calendar, today is the actually the start of Spring.
These blossoms bring so much hope to me and my family!
PS The pictures were taken in Luoping, Yunnan in China during Spring.
These flowers are so vibrant at this time of the year.
The pictures were taken on our way to Luoping, Yunnan in China a couple of years ago.
Spring was in the air.
There is so much of a festive mood in seeing the flowers.
This is so real and vibrant.
If I were you, I would touch the screen to remind myself this is not an alive butterfly.
The picture was taken locally by my calligraphy classmate KF Chung.
It is a picture beyond words!
Hong Kong must be one of the most vibrant cities.
The waves in the harbor was a bit choppy when I took the photo.
We have carried out a bit too much land reclamation, narrowing the harbor.
Waves set up by ship wash or wind just got bounced back and forth in the harbor.
Together with the city lights, they form a Vibrant picture.
This week’s DP Photo Challenge is Vibrant.
The most commonly bought flowers for the Chinese New Year in Hong Kong is now the Orchid.
As with previous years, I bought Orchids for my home.
The flowers can usually last for a couple of months and, therefore, you are sure that you have some beautiful flowers around during the festive season.
Here are some of the lovely orchids. Please enjoy.
