The WuYiShan Picture

Floating down the Nine Bend river on a bamboo raft was one of the scaring moments on this trip.

It was on a cold and raining day when we did this trip.

The rain was falling hard and beating against our body.CIMG0267

Mist has fallen on us.

The WuYi mountains were covered with mist that kept crawling down.

How did we feel – we were almost frightened!


Weekly Photo Challenge: Half Light ( Misty Afternoon)

March is coming to a close.

By our standards, we have a relatively cold March.

It wasn’t only cold but damp as well; with relative humidity hovering near 100% for long periods of time.IMG_1708

Our usual winter is cold and dry which is more bearable.

This March is more like Winter but damp which makes it unbearable.IMG_1709

Quite often, we have mist in the morning; but the mist didn’t seem to dispel evening in the afternoon.

Here are some smart phone pictures I have taken in the afternoon while walking along the shore of Tolo Harbour, Hong Kong.IMG_1711

The mist have covered up some distant buildings.

Even on walking closer to the pier, the buildings behind still look buried in the mist.

Hope April will bring better weather!


Another Foggy Day in Hong Kong

< 2 photos >

Here are two recent photos taken in Hong Kong.

One taken during a foggy day in early Spring.

It is posted in a website (Hong Kong is Beautiful) which shows some beautiful photos of the territory. It also states that the creator is happy to share the photos with others.10997023_1411104525864820_6641351995558376998_o

The second photo was taken by me during a normal day.CIMG3435

From these, you can appreciate the big contrast in mood etc. in the photos.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Blur (Zhangjiajie)

This week’s theme is Blur.

Don’t think it is a good idea to show a picture which is totally and uniformly blur.

Think there should be a good contrast between parts which are blur and parts which are clear.DSC_0095

Here is a picture taken in Zhangjiajie, China when there was heavy mist.

It shows a limestone column jutting out of the mist, trees on top of the column are clearly seen whereas the background is basically blurred by the mist.

Please enjoy 🙂

One Foggy Day in Hong Kong

< 2 Photos>

I must declare this is not my photo; it is a recent photo taken from the South China Morning Post (SCMP).

I would like to show it to contrast it with a photo taken by me on a good day where you can see forever.

The photos show the tallest building in Hong Kong, the Pacific Club with the West Kowloon in the background.foghk-f

The first photo shows what you can see ( which is not much) earlier this month when there was heavy fog.

The second photo taken by me shows what you can actually see on a normal day.DSCF2033

Only when both pictures are put together, readers can appreciate what the fog can do!

One Foggy Day in South Korea

Spring has brought with it many foggy days.

The temperature has been fluctuating. Warm air comes, bringing in moisture from the ocean.

Only a few days later, the temperature drops and the cooler air from the north penetrated.

This alternate warming and cooling has resulted in a lot of mist and low visibility.DSCF3417A

Have seen some fantastic pictures of this place with only the tops of high rises appearing above the fog but otherwise the whole place is covered.

This reminds me of my hike up the South Korean mountains a couple of years ago.

The picture, taken in South Korea, has been turned into a B&W so that it is more moody.

Please enjoy 🙂
