Weekly Photo Challenge: Path (7)

This is a response to the DP challenge of Path.

As a traveler, I have taken many paths, some less traveled, some into unknown territory and some back into history.dscf2966

This path leads me from one side of the gorge to another.

On the other side, it almost goes straight into a cavern.

The picture was taken in Yunnan, China.

The two sides of the gorge was connected by a flimsy suspension structure.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Landscape ( Canyon )

We were high up on one side of the canyon, overlooking on the other side.

This is one of the deepest canyons or gorges in the world – the Malinghe Canyon or Gorge in Yunnan, China.DSCF2990

Deep down under is a river flowing, near to the bottom we could see visitors walking on a path cut into the rock.

The rock face is much weathered and rugged; with a lot of weathered rock protruding beyond the canyon face.

This is one of the most interesting landscapes I have come across.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Half Light (Canyon)

This photo has three light zones.

The brightest part is on the left hand side, showing hills yonder with their shadows.

The middle zone showing the somewhat reddish rock with their many joints as a result of weathering.

The right hand zone is dark but still shows the rugged nature of the rock face.CIMG4055

It also shows the silhouette of my brother and sister in law walking under the overhanging rock.

The picture was taken by my wife while travelling in the South Western part of the States.

Altogether, it makes an interesting picture!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Half and Half (Bryce)

The DP’s theme for this week is Half and Half.

Photographers talk about the rule of thirds.

Taking pictures half / half is usually not recommended.

This week, I will be sharing pictures which are half / half.CIMG4255

The picture was taken by my wife when she was in Bryce, as part of her trip to the South Western.

The sun was setting – the sky and the canyon were almost half / half.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Descent (Waterfall)

We walked by the side of the Maling River, China.

The tracks are cut into the rocky canyons standing steep on both sides of the river.

Our trip took us to the canyon and we walked both banks of the river.DSCF2971

One of the amazing sights was seeing some of the waterfalls that cascade down to the river.

They are by no means any grander than many of the waterfalls in the world; but they are strikingly beautiful!
