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: (The Great Wall) Under Your Feet

This week’s DP challenge is Under Your Feet.

A few years back, on a fine Autumn day, we found ourselves hiking the beautiful Miutianyu section of the Great Wall.

Some foliage has already changed color and the sky was as usual hazy.CIMG2681

We were overjoyed that the GW was not very crowded and we were able to enjoy the serenity.

After so many years of not being able to revisit this place, we found that the GW was actually under our feet!

Llanberis Pass in Wales, UK

This looks more like a geological picture for teaching about boulders or glazier erosion.

I have never thought of climbing the Snowdonia mountain in Wales, but on that rainy day in 1985, I did.

The picture was taken on the road when we were approaching the mountain site by car.28-12-2004 9-13-50 AM_0000

It was early Spring when we made our way up Snowdonia. Rain fell as we were laboring our way up the wet, narrow and steep mountain tracks.

After climbing halfway, my shoes were soaked with water and my feet were cold. Parts of the skin on my feet started to peel off.

The bad weather meant that I did not have many good pictures.

This photo brings back memories of an almost forgotten hiking.
