Weekly Photo Challenge: Morning ( Beach at Harlech)

It was an early morning in 1985.

I stayed at a beach side hotel in Harlech, Wales.

Woke up early in the morning and decided to go down to the beach.

The beach was nothing I have seen in the past. It has some sand dunes piled up quite high parallel to the beach.28-12-2004 4-11-41 PM_0007

I climbed over the dunes; in my climb, I noticed some rabbits jotting about from their hiding places.

When I got over the dunes, my eyes were met with this magnificent sight.

Jesus light from the sky above and lines of waves coming in from the sea.

I was bewildered and took this photo.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Harmony ( Koh Samui)

The sun has set; the day was coming to a close.

We were still loitering on the beach of Koh Samui, Thailand.DSC_0578A

The tide has gone out, exposing all the rock and coarse sand.

There was a blue tint everywhere; this was the source of harmony.

Benje Beach at Dubrovnik

While many tourists are attracted to the old town of Dubrovnik, the nearby Benje Beach is also an interesting destination.

The setting is perfect, overlooking the fortress and pier jutting out to the sea.DSCF0806

The beach with its sand and pebbles looks very much the perfect beach for lying down and enjoying the sun.

The water quality is superb, from the beach you can see a gradation of blue colors.DSCF0690

While there, the waters was still too cool and there wasn’t a lot of swimmers there.

Here are a couple of photos which give me fond memories of the beach.



Weekly Photo Challenge: Now (Sunset)

The setting sun reminds me more than anything that the present moment is Now.

In a couple of minutes time, the sun will have sunk below the horizon.DSC_0051A

In 15 minutes, the sky will have darkened and the day will be coming to a close.

The photo was taken in Langkawi, Malaysia. It reminded me so strongly that I shouldn’t be chasing sunset anymore and should be back at the hotel for dinner.


Clouds at Okinawa

Both Sides Now Lyrics – Joni Mitchell

Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere,
I’ve looked at clouds that way.12362677_1218296368187501_8497135584051579556_o

Do they look like angel hair?

I must admit that I am not able to take such a good photo.

The picture was taken by my classmate YM Chan who has received proper training on photography.

I am more like the child on the beach ( at Okinawa) looking at the sky in awe.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Trio (Palm)

This week’s photo challenge is Trio.

Not a cloud was in sight.

No one really wanted to be under the sun; it was like 40 degrees Celsius, even this beach at Langkawi was deserted.

I was hesitating whether I should walk all the way  to the beach and take this photo.DSC_0066

However, the sky, the water and the palm trees were so captivating.

The palms, especially, were like three ladies dancing on the beach, swaying in the wind.

This picture was therefore taken with a lot of sweat ( luckily no tears!)



Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy Place ( Langkawi 2)

My ideal place of a Happy Place is a place with blue sky, beach with fine white sand and a blue sea.

This is something easily tenable at Langkawi, Malaysia.DSC_0075

Better still, here are some boats ready for anyone who enjoy sea sports!
