There are times when I feel I am much closer to God.
That is when I walked in the wilderness, climbed mountains, facing an open sea or hiking alone.
In those moments, I would choose to pray, seeking God and hoping He will bring me through the desert of the soul.
The opening of the red lotus flowers at Angkor Wat, Cambodia marked the start of a fresh new day.
The Lord has given us a new day.
We will take it gracefully as it arrives!
I posted a picture showing Bryce Canyon at sunset.
Here is a photo taken by my sister-in-law in her travels to the South West of the United States.
The sun was rising and the whole scene looks magnificent!
This picture was taken last year by my sister-in-law when she and my wife were travelling in the South West of the States.
This seems so unreal. Everything seemed frozen in time.
The pictures from Bodie are just so haunting!
This week’s photo challenge is Orange.
However, this is not my favorite color.
For colors, I more prefer yellow, green and blue.
Here is a photo taken by my sister-in-law while travelling with my wife last year in the South West.
They passed through a ghost town – a previous mining town which is now deserted.
This photo shows the orange colored wine bottles taken in Bodie.
If readers are interested, I may share more photos of this ghost town.
This week’s challenge is Reward.
This is the reward you get if you get there at sunset.
The picture was taken by my wife last year when they drove 5400 miles in South West USA.
For appreciating the sunset view, they went back a second time to catch the sunset at Bryce Canyon.
Here are two photos , both of which show waterfalls.
One was taken at the Niagara fall, the water was crashing down in all its mighty.
A boat full of visitors was edging towards the waterfall while a rainbow appears to the left. The picture was taken by my classmate KC Ching.
The second picture was taken by me at the Nine Dragons Group of Waterfalls in Yunnan, China.
The pictures are in dialogue, speaking to each other – with a similar theme but at a different scale.
Instead of a motorized boat, the second picture shows a small sampan being maneuvered near to misty waterfall.
Please enjoy :-)
