That Day Our Cable Car Has to Retract because of High Winds in Xinjiang
HuaShan – A Journey into the Mist
As we ascended HuaShan the mist started to dissipate.
What we saw in the cable car was mist inter-bedded in layers of mountains.
The sky hasn’t cleared up and we didn’t know what to expect at the other end of our cable car journey.
Going higher up, rain fell and the cable car windows became blurred.
I was happy to take some shots before it occurred.
The Cable Car at the Top of the Mountain at Langkawi, Malaysia
Weekly Photo Challenge: Landscape ( Tateyama- Kurobe )
The cable car has brought us to the top of the mountain – Tateyama, Japan.
The sky was dark and it was snowing – something which I didn’t expect.
Looking down from the top, I realize the great height from which we were viewing.
The mountains looked dark and somewhat stern and I could see part of the Kurobe reservoir at the bottom.
The view was breath taking!
View from the Daedunsan Cable Car
As we ascended the Daedunsan Mountain in South Korea, we were engulfed in mist.
The view from the cable car was interesting.
The foliage have partially changed their color during the fall.
I was wondering whether I should take pictures as the mist was thick and also I could only take them through the glass windows of the cable car.
Here are two samples of the picture I have taken; hope that you like it.
Langkawi – Beyond Sun, Sand and Sea
What a joy it was to start the day with a cup of freshly brewed coffee and breakfast outdoor, overlooking the blue sea in Langkawi.
Before it got really hot, we went for a boat ride which brought us through some limestone caverns.
By noon, it was pretty hot. Lunching at the Four Seasons Hotel, overlooking the beach and clear blue sky was really enjoyable. All you could see was pristine white sand stretching for miles, overlooking small limestone islands and the blue sea.
More activities in the afternoon. We drove around and took the cable car up the hill top to have a panoramic view of the harbour. Walking along the cable stayed bridge with just one column support in the middle and intermediate lookout platforms clipped to the side of the footbridge was an amazing experience!
Visited the mangrove area by boat, watching black kites diving down for the food. We were keenly aware that a lot of work had gone into making sure the mangroves would thrive but feeding the hawks would reduce their ability to find food themselves.
We swinged by a fish farm. Like any other tourists, we were eager to touch the stingrays in a fish farm tank. Immersing our feet in a tank of small fishes, we had a strange sensation as the fishes nibbled our feet which we were told would improve our skin.
After several hours of driving around visiting more places, it was almost time for afternoon high tea by the side of the marina. While resting, it was relaxing to see yachts and boats.
Strolling for hours, visiting more interesting places, we were tempted by the snacks at roadside cafes.
We were impressed by the appearance of the boutique Spanish style hotel Casa Del Mar and decided to try out al fresco dining by the sea. Sitting under the gently swaying palm trees, and watching the sun setting was the only thing we wanted to do.
What a luxurious life! We realized how blessed we were and were grateful that we were given such a blissful day.
