The West lake in China has always given me a tranquil feeling.
This picture showing the water lilies in red and green floating on the water with a pagoda in the distant background is one of my favorite pictures.
The rain that fell on the lake created some ripples too.

Here are 3 more photos taken at the annual Harbin ice festival in China.
They are ephemeral in the sense that the ice will melt and the sculptures disappear with the onset of warmer weather.
The previous two posts on this subject have aroused the interest of quite a few readers, I am therefore posting these last three photos which my classmate YM Chan have taken.
Do they remind you of Christmas?
Please enjoy :-)
This week’s theme is Blur.
Don’t think it is a good idea to show a picture which is totally and uniformly blur.
Think there should be a good contrast between parts which are blur and parts which are clear.
Here is a picture taken in Zhangjiajie, China when there was heavy mist.
It shows a limestone column jutting out of the mist, trees on top of the column are clearly seen whereas the background is basically blurred by the mist.
Please enjoy :-)
This may be a picture you saw in a dream. . . . . . .
Or maybe a picture you saw when you just woke up still trying to clear your eyes and come to your senses.
But the truth is that this picture has been blurred using a software. I am not sure whether you like this and I am not too sure about it either!
The picture was taken in Luoping, Yunnan, China.

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 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.
