Yellow foliage with the temple in the background.
We are already missing it. If opportunities arise, we would like to visit it again in Autumn!
<This posts contains 4 photos>. In our trip to South Korea, we did see a lot of fall foliage which are yellow or even golden in color. Everywhere there are lots of Gingko and other trees which gave an impression of a Golden Autumn. They remind me of the following poem written by a Chinese scholar and translated into English: I like spring, but it is too young. I like summer, but it is too proud. So I like best of all autumn, because its leaves are a little yellow, its tones mellower, its colors richer, and it is tinged a little with sorrow. Its golden richness speaks not of the innocence of spring, nor of the power of summer, but of the mellowness and kindly wisdom of approaching age. It knows the limitations of life and is content. Lin Yutang I like Autumn and share the sentiment that – it knows the limitations of life and is content! On a similar note, Yoko Ono did quote : Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence. Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance. Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence. Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.
Snakes zigzag across the desert, rivers zigzag across the flood plain and the Great Wall snakes across mountains!
It zigzags across the terrain like a snake, commanding the high points so that there is good visibility to the enemies and maintaining good defense.
Although not really visible from spaceships, they are clearly one of the biggest engineering feats of the world!
This week Cee indicated we can choose Reds or Greens or Both for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Reds and Greens
The first picture was taken while travelling to HuangLuo temple, Beijing earlier this year when maple leaves hanging down from a red wall were partly green and partly red. The mix of colors remind me of the coming Christmas. . . . . . . . . . .hope this serves as an electronic Christmas card to you all, Happy Holidays to you!!
Back in Hong Kong, although winter has set in, many of the vegetation is still having a green color. This contrasts quite sharply with the red flowers which sprung up from their almost bare stems. Reds and greens, I like both of them mashing in together!
