On a rainy day, we found ourselves hiking laboriously in the mountains of Snowdonia, Wales.
My shoes were soaked, water penetrated my shoes, part of the skin on the feet has come off.
Gazing afar, we saw this beautiful lake of Llyn Llydaw.
Llyn Llydaw – 1,430 feet (440 m) high, 110 acres (45 ha) – lies in Cwm Dyli, Snowdon’s eastern cwm, and is one of Snowdonia’s deepest lakes, at up to 190 ft (58 m) deep.
There was clearly a connection down to and across the lake, in the form of a causeway.
On that gloomy day, we did hike down and across the lake, in the form of a causeway. A day always remembered.
I like bridges as it connects places which otherwise are separated or inaccessible.
Here are a couple of photos which I took near to the entrance of some very big caverns in Yunnan, China.
The first photo shows in more detail the bridge which connects both sides. Water flows quickly swiftly below the bridge into the cavern. A bridge over troubled waters?
The photo may be a bit hard to visualize; therefore, I have included a second photo in portrait format which shows the outline of the caverns.
It is hard to imagine how to connect both sides before the bridge was built.
I have been posting a series known as The Dog that Lived on a Fishing Raft.
It was about the life of a dog whose owner chose to rear this labrador on one of his rafts for rearing fishes in the sea.
For much of the time when the owner was not on the raft, the dog was a loner.
This dog has a great connection to his owner and to those who went fishing on the rafts.
I have stopped posting about him when I heard last summer, this dog Dor Dor was drowned in the sea. He went for a swim but couldn’t get back onto the raft because his body was too heavy ( due to captivity on the raft) and the raft was too high to climb back on.
Here is a photo which shows the great connection between the dog and the owner. May his soul rest in peace.
I have always liked Kew Garden in London, UK.
It was an inspirational moment to walk in the garden during fall.
There was a thick carpet of leaves under my feet, and the light just shone through the trees.
It was a rare moment I experienced in my life.
Don’t ask me where about is this door in the Baltic.
I got locations all mixed up while travelling from Estonia, then south to Latvia and Lithuania.
However, this must be one of the most interesting doors I have seen.
It is colorful with contrasting colors, with a spider, a chain, a hand sticking out waiting to be shaken.

Here are two photos taken of fireworks in Toyu Lake, Japan.
They are glamorous, change their shape and colors with time and last for a short time only.
I like seeing them developing in the air, change shape , color and configuration and finally disappear in the sky.
Lake Tōya is a volcanic caldera lake in Shikotsu-Toya National Park, Abuta District, Hokkaidō, Japan.
The photos were taken by my classmate YM Chan to whom credit is due.
Please enjoy :-)

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!
