Travel Theme: Hidden

Ailsa’s Travel theme this week is Hidden.

Woke up early in the morning, I stumbled onto the top deck of our ship that was cruising up the Three Gorges section of the Yangtze River and, as the only person on the deck, I found myself terribly alone.

There was total silence and a thick mist was around me.

Out of the thick mist, I could see mountains rising steeply on both sides of the river. The distant mountains appeared as layers of blue and green before my eyes.DSCF6137

Hidden behind the clouds and sometimes barely visible was our tiny sun.

Dwarfed by the mountains was this partially hidden speck . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  so tiny that I have never seen anything like it before.

  1. Beautiful! I painted the cave. I might do this one next. You capture the best views. I would live to be in all these places.

    • I am glad that my pictures provide you with some subjects/ suggestion for painting. I have visited your blog and like the cave painting you done – will look forward to others. Thank you 🙂

    • Hi Julia, I missed the chance of cruising the Yangtze before the Three gorges dam was built. I am sure iy=t should look more stunning before the water level was raised. Thank you 🙂

  2. Looking at this photo, Michael, I can also imagine all the wildlife that is sheltering/hidden in the lovely lush canopy of the trees and shrubs. I can sense the silence. The nocturnal creatures will be settling down under cover, and soon all the other animals and birds will be waking up as the sun breaks through. I bet it looks and sounds a lot different then.

  3. Reblogged this on Artandicon's Blog and commented:
    Look at the subtlety of color in the distant mists! How they hover, hiding mysteries that will only be revealed by the persistence of the slowly rising sun. Will we be able to wait and anticipate the revealing and restoration of the new heaven and new earth, which is now shrouded and hidden before our weary eyes?
