Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O ( Mist in the Harbor )

This is not a monochromatic picture.

It was taken earlier this year with a smart phone when the mist was heavy.

The view is one of Tolo Harbor in the New Territories, Hong Kong.img_1671

Fabulous clouds, layers of mountains as backdrop.

In the foreground are faint outline of high rises.

In the foremost are some fishing boats and sampans.

If you look at the left bottom corner, you will see a bit of the edge of the shore in a different color.

Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O ( House of Dancing Water )

Water sprung up from all sides as the show went on.

The pavilion was raised suddenly from under the performing platform.dscf0674

Dancers gathered round and the main actor and actress went into the pavilion.

This was part of the show House of Dancing Water in Macau.

Water is of course the main theme.

Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O ( Fountains )

This week’s photo challenge is H2O.

I like photographing water in its different forms and states.dscf0270

Photographing fountains is my favorite too.

The first one is a picture taken in the peace memorial park in Hiroshima.

I have adopted a slow shutter speed and a shallow depth of field.

At the bottom of the fountain, the water came bubbling up.dscf1165

The second photo was taken in Geneva, Switzerland.

I must admit my main focus was on the trees and the shadows although the fountain is an indispensable part of the photo.


Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O ( Plitvice Lakes 2 )

This week’s photo challenge is H2O.

I have request to post some more images of water in the Plitvice National lakes.

There are some places on earth which make you think you are totally engulfed in a world of water.dscf0300

The Plitvice National Lakes in Croatia is one of them.

I was standing there taking a photo;  what occurred to me was that water was coming towards me from all sides.

In this series I will be showing some of them with water as the main feature.

Hope you like them!

Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O ( = Serenity ?)

This week’s photo challenge is H2O.

I have always been fascinated by water; water in rivers, ponds, lakes, seas, in the air as rain, snow, mist or fog, for instance.14719_565283316822146_1053155327_n

Water is sometimes soft, sometimes powerful, sometimes even noisy but most of all, I like the serenity in the waters.

Here is a picture taken near to the border with mainland China.

The serenity intoxicates me.


Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O ( is Fun For Children )

See this fountain.Water flowing and spraying.
Children playing in it, screaming and laughing.
Splashing and dipping, feet wading. 11037316_1054738214543318_7666546475893478235_n
Cheerful laughter can always be heard.
The fountain is a magical place for everyone to enjoy.
It is the place where we rediscover the simple moments when we are free.
