Just Before the Sun Goes Down . . . . . . . .

Watching sun rise and sun set is my favorite pastime.

If you are in the city part of Hong Kong, then gazing towards to the West of the Victoria Harbor probably gives you the best view without having to travel any further.4896163873_687f31ac34_o

Here is a picture taken in the fringes of the city, on the Kowloon side, just before the sun sets.

I like the sun down to such a level and the silhouettes of the trees.

Please enjoy!

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Quest ( for Happiness )

This week’s photo challenge is Quest.

The theme is quite abstract and not one which is easy to respond to.cimg3142

All of us are looking for happiness, or at least, would not like to be unhappy.

While travelling in Yunnan, I came across these big open statues of the Buddha.dscf2877a

He has a smiling face.

He has the wisdom to be happy.

You can’t find happiness by looking for it, although this is our quest.

Autumn is Fleeting Away

I like looking outside my window.

In my blog, I have various posts titled : Gazing Out From my Window.unnamed

This is a view outside my window around 6pm last evening – the so called Grey Hour.

The clouds were colorful and in a funny configuration.

The air was stuffy as typhoon Megi just passed north of us.

The picture was captured with a smartphone.

Blue, Blue, My World is Blue 3 . . . . . . . .

I think I am cheating a bit.

This is not exactly blue; but this photo contains the two colors I like – blue and green.

Like the other photos, the water is blue.dscf0274a

The photo was taken in the Plitvice national Lakes in Croatia.

Again, the water has a lot of calcium.

 

Blue, Blue, My World is Blue. . . . . . .

This is a photo which I have never posted.

The water up in the lakes of Jiuzhaigou, China is blue; it is so rich in calcium.100

The surrounding is so serene, the  area is lush, together with the lake, they make a great picture.

This is like a post card!

The Love Bridge at Annecy

How romantic!

The bridge at the end of the river Le Thiou where  it finally meets Lake Annecy,  is known as Pont des Amours (or the Bridge of Love).dscf1119a

Supposedly, it is a magical little spot where legend says that anyone you kiss might just be with you forever!

I wasn’t there at the right time of the day ( it looks very romantic with the lights on in the evening) and could not afford to stay any longer.
