Weekly Photo Challenge : Lost in the Details

For several weeks, I have not been participating in the challenge. My travels have also prevented me submitting entries on time.

I note just now, this challenge is retitled “Phoneography Challenge” and wonder whether the Weekly Photo Challenge has come to an end.

Many times, I have lost in the details. The details just fascinated or even intoxicated me.

One of these was in a limestone cavern in Yunnan. I was totally lost in the details which was created by nature in the continuing process of million of years for forming these pools.DSC_0432

  1. Gorgeous pic, fascinating and such beautiful colours.

    I do hope the photo challenge hasn’t been usurped by a phoneography challenge. I only use a mobile phone if the car breaks down – and it has no camera in it!

  2. I completely understand. Texture and patterns mesmerize me whether they are natural or human made. That is the best part of photography, it opens ones eyes to see everything.

    • Hi Cate, I agree that texture and patterns are very important in pictures. As a result of your comment, I am preparing some human made details for a further post. Many thanks for the comment;have a great week 🙂

  3. Amazing details in the stone and I love the colors -. Nature is all for free and it’s only for embrace it and enjoy – something you’re very good at together with your camera.

  4. Texture and details are present in this pix. I love the color.
    I think this phone challenge is temporary. At least, Ihope it is as I do not knowhow to use my phone camera. A phone is for speaking. hahaha Camera’s are for photography. Yes .. i am a purest.

    • You are right, readers may not know what it is if I do not include an explanation; especially, thta I have taken the picture at an angle. Many thanks for the comment;have a great week 🙂

  5. Hi Michael,
    Thanks for your visit to my blog.
    Wow; great details to be had on your photo! Nature is the best for colors nd textures though humans sometimes have great ideas :).

  6. Michael,

    I’ve nominated you for a Leibster Award. The award is a “blogger to blogger award” that both allows other bloggers to show their appreciation to one another, and is a way to get to know some one new.

    Here’s what you should do if you are interested:

    1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
    2. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve tagged to answer.
    3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
    4. Go to their page and tell them.
    5. No tag backs!

    Here are the 11 questions from me:
    1. When did you start blogging?
    2. What motivated you to start blogging?
    3. How often do you blog?
    4. What suggestions do you have for new bloggers?
    5. How much time do you put in on a blog?
    6. Where do you come up with your ideas?
    7. What other creative venues do you have?
    8. Do you post on a particular time/day of the week?
    9. What do you find most frustrating about blogging?
    10. If you could do any one thing on your blog what would it be?
    11. What was the favorite thing you ever did with your blog?


    • Hi, thanks so much for the nomination which I understand is an important award. I have decided not to pursue or accept any nomination / award during my retirement and for this reason, I have already turned down all similar awards. Knowing that my blog is read in many places of the world (over 160 countries) is already my biggest reward. With regret, I have to decline the nomination. Thank you once again for the nomination which is very much appreciated! Best wishes to you also, Michael

  7. I think those natural formations are just awesome. Good take on it! I also wish the photo challenge hasn’t ended. I hope you’ll continue to share your amazing shots and travel stories even without the challenges.

    • Sometimes, I think those challenges distract me from posting on my travels; however, sometimes, I like them because, I could bring out some photos which I would never have posted if I write only on my travels. Maybe, there should be a balance of both. Thank you for the kind comment; have a great weekend 🙂
