Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror ( Hokkaido Autumn )

This week’s DP photo challenge is Mirror.

It is sort of romantic up there in the lakes of Hokkaido in Autumn.007

Colored foliage and a lone yacht with perfect reflection in the placid pool.

A perfect mirror image in the Autumn lakes – a paradise for photographers!

The Bangkok Picture

Bangkok is only a few hours away by plane; it has been one of my favorite destination.

The atmosphere is relaxing, the people are friendly and the Thai food is to my liking.

However, things seem to have changed in recent years.

The Thai people are becoming more political; more worrying is the blast last year at the temple of the Four Faced Buddha killing many people.CIMG0367

Nevertheless, I can think of the more peaceful time when we hopped on and off the boat alongside the bank of Bangkok.

If I have to choose a photo of Bangkok, this is the one!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Harmony ( Koh Samui)

The sun has set; the day was coming to a close.

We were still loitering on the beach of Koh Samui, Thailand.DSC_0578A

The tide has gone out, exposing all the rock and coarse sand.

There was a blue tint everywhere; this was the source of harmony.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Forces of Nature (Koh Samui)

Here are two photos which show limestone in layers are raised up above the sea levels.DSC_0642

They now appear as islands, with stratified rock layers.DSC_0643

These islands have been subject to the action of wind, waves and tidal currents too!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh (Flowers)

<4 Photos>

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.DSC_0675

Flowers just come popping up from the ground; they are love’s truest language, they are indeed the music of the ground.DSCF3147A

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.DSC_0674

 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.DSC_0589A
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.
