I have always liked Kew Garden in London, UK.
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.
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.
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 first photo shows what you can see ( which is not much) earlier this month when there was heavy fog.
Only when both pictures are put together, readers can appreciate what the fog can do!
When I arrived at the beach, I knew I was Rewarded.
All I could see was the Victorian pier against a background of clouds in the blue sky and waves crashing in from the sea.
More than that, the father playing with his son on the beach has always reminded me of my days on the beach with my dad (who has left the world a long time ago! )
The building of the Stonehenge earth mound may have started around the same time when the pyramid at Saqarra, Egypt was built ( see my previous post).
There were many mysteries surrounding this monument – who have built it?, for what purpose and how was it built?
Many theories have been put forward. Speculation on the reasons it was built range from human sacrifice to astronomy.
Investigations over the last 100 years have revealed that Stonehenge was built in several stages from 2800 – 1800 BC. It seems to have been designed to allow for observation of astronomical phenomena – summer and winter solstices, eclipses, and more.
It is also a puzzle as to how the stones were transported to the site – including 82 bluestones weighing as much as 4 tonnes for 240 miles from the Preseli mountains in Wales to the Sarsen stones, up to 50 tonnes from 25 miles north of Stonehenge.
