There are so many moments we recall as being ephemeral.
They are fleeting moments which would disappear after appearing briefly.
These are moments which photographers would very much like capturing.
Here is a picture of the sun setting on the western side of the Victoria Harbor, Hong Kong.
Picture again taken by my classmate YM Chan.

My first post on the ice carving seems to be well received.
Here are two more photos showing ice carvings.
In Harbin, China there is a ice carving festival which took place each year.
The exhibits are becoming more awesome each year.
The pictures, taken by my classmate YM Chan, will give you a scale of things.
This week’s photo challenge is Ephemeral.
Not quite sure what Ephemeral means – something that last for a short time?
The image is part of an ice carving exhibition in Harbin, China.
Surely, the carving will melt with time.
The photo was taken by my classmate YM Chan.

I must declare this is not my photo; it is a recent photo taken from the South China Morning Post (SCMP).
I would like to show it to contrast it with a photo taken by me on a good day where you can see forever.
The photos show the tallest building in Hong Kong, the Pacific Club with the West Kowloon in the background.
The first photo shows what you can see ( which is not much) earlier this month when there was heavy fog.
The second photo taken by me shows what you can actually see on a normal day.
Only when both pictures are put together, readers can appreciate what the fog can do!
There are times when I feel I am much closer to God.
That is when I walked in the wilderness, climbed mountains, facing an open sea or hiking alone.
In those moments, I would choose to pray, seeking God and hoping He will bring me through the desert of the soul.
Spring has brought with it many foggy days.
The temperature has been fluctuating. Warm air comes, bringing in moisture from the ocean.
Only a few days later, the temperature drops and the cooler air from the north penetrated.
This alternate warming and cooling has resulted in a lot of mist and low visibility.
Have seen some fantastic pictures of this place with only the tops of high rises appearing above the fog but otherwise the whole place is covered.
This reminds me of my hike up the South Korean mountains a couple of years ago.
The picture, taken in South Korea, has been turned into a B&W so that it is more moody.
Please enjoy :-)
I like fresh flowers scenting the air.
The picture of the yellow flowers was taken early in the morning at Koh Samui when there were still dew drops on the petals.
Flowers just come popping up from the ground; they are love’s truest language, they are indeed the music of the ground.
This is a bouquet of small flowers in Koh Samui. They are so fresh that you can see the tiny filaments reaching out from the flowers.
In joy or sadness, flowers are our constant friends. Water lilies convey a special atmosphere of Zen; you feel fresh again on seeing the water lilies.
The water lily was also photographed on the island of Koh Samui, Thailand, early in the morning before of the start of a fresh new day.
