The Impressions of Autumn (13)

Two years ago, I have a series known as The Impressions of Autumn.

I don’t think I have showcased all the photos.

This is a continuation of the series.dscf2573

The picture was taken in HongLuo Temple, China during Autumn.

It was a hike into Autumn; while the sun was still with us and shone on the foliage.

Autumn was in the air.

The Impressions of Autumn (8)

Two years ago, I have a series known as The Impressions of Autumn.

I don’t think I have showcased all the photos.

This is a continuation of the series.

The picture was taken at the Great Wall during Autumn.dscf2721b

 

Unlike the rest of my other photos which were mainly taken while walking the wall, this photo was taken from a low angle.

I went down to a lower level to take this photo while the sun was setting.

Autumn was in the trees and everywhere.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Tiny ( Flowers 3 )

This week’s DP challenge is Tiny.

Photographing flowers with big petals gives you a lot of amazing details.

However, I also like photographing small flowers too.dscf3147

While travelling in LuoPing, Yunnan, China, I enjoyed not only taking photos of vast fields of canola flowers, but also of the individual flowers.

This is a photo which I got when focusing just on the small flowers.

Please enjoy!

The Light that Shone on the Great Wall

We were there at the best of time for the Great wall.

It was Autumn and the air was crispy clean.

The sun has started its descending path.cimg2747

The light fell softly on the foliage on both sides of the Wall.

Not only that, the light has illuminated the walls, giving them a last touch of warmth.

We were blessed to be there, at the right time and the right place.

Weekly Photo Challenge; Shine ( Through Flowers )

This is a scene from Yunnan, China.

The picture was taken against the light.dsc_0374

Light shone through a tree with flowers.

At the background is a traditional Chinese house.

Very peaceful but radiant view!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Shine ( Through Trees and Leaves 7 )

This week’s photo challenge is Shine.

I like photographing against the light; in particular I like photographing trees and leaves against in coming light.

If the camera is set as Automatic, this usually poses a problem as the light sensor will sense there is strong light and the aperture will automatically reduce, giving a picture which is too dark.dsc_0285

I intend to upload a series of photos which has been shot against the light.

Here is a photo taken in a Chinese garden in Zhangjiajie, a companion photo to the earlier one. See the light that falls on the bamboo leaves; lovely?

Please enjoy!
