Gullfoss Waterfall in Iceland

Those who read my blog know I have a couple of favorite subjects; namely, bridges and waterfalls.

You will find plenty of them if you search for these keywords.

I can assure you I like waterfalls better as it is a creation of nature.

Having said that, beautiful bridges are not easy to find as they have to be aesthetically pleasing, elegant and brand in well with the environment,

This photo was taken by my wife, Linda.

Going behind the Skogafoss Waterfall in Iceland

Many of us see waterfall from the front; that is how I often see them too.

I have the chance to go behind some of the waterfalls; getting myself somewhat wet in the process.

Here is a photo taken by my wife Linda currently on a trip there.

The avalanche of water keep coming down; that’s quite an experience.

For those who are interested in viewing, here is a short video too, showing the might of the waterfall.

Please enjoy 🙂

Ice Tunnel in Iceland

Big monster vehicles brought tourists to the entrance of this ice tunnel inside a glacier in Iceland.

One can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

A Preview of Photos taken in Iceland

This is the first of a series of photos which I will post here.

This is a photo of the Skogafoss waterfall taken by my wife Linda using a smartphone.

I like waterfalls, more than that, this one has a rainbow shining at the bottom.

You can say the photos are taken in almost real time – with a one day time lag.

Mom – The Last Night with You

I clearly remember all the details of spending that last night with you in the hospital.

I watched you suffered

as you moaned in pain.

I hold your hand endlessly, trying to ease your pain.

I asked for medical attention

but they did not come up with anything effective.

All I could do was to sit close by, praying for you.

In the morning, you went away and we have to part.

God finally eased your pain

but broke my heart.

 

Jiuzhaigou – Before and After the Recent Earthquake

It takes millions of years to create the picturesque environment of the beautiful lakes in Jiuzhaigou, China.

The placid and serene lakes there are known for their mirror like reflection. The water is so clear that you can see the bottom of the lakes.

Water with calcium in it flows through the area creating bund like structures and series of terraces.

The water is so blue as it has no living plants in there; trees fallen over in the lake are progressively calcified.

Now, everything is destroyed.

The waterfalls are gone, the bunds disappeared.

Perhaps, the area will never recover . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The last two photos are from the news agencies to which credit is due.
