Weekly Photo Challenge: Season ( Up on the Swiss Mountains)

Our Spring is still cold ( by our standards).

As one who lives in the subtropics, Switzerland always seems cold to me except in the Summer months.DSCF8573

Here are a couple of photos taken some years ago.

It was Spring; there was quite a contrast between the bleak snow covered hills and the grassland down below.DSCF8556

It looks as if there are two seasons there in the picture; Winter on the hills and Spring in the valley below.

Maybe the snow there never melts, even in Summer.

Milford Sound ( On a Cloudy Day)

Just wonder whether Milford Sound has always been cloudy.IMG_0051

Maybe, the only question is whether it is overcast, partially covered, dark clouds on a rainy day  or white clouds on a good day.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Half and Half ( Plover Cove)

This picture was taken just minutes before I got wet from the rain!

Depending on how you look at it, there could be many Halves.

It is a picture of half sky + hills against half water and reservoir dam.

It is a picture with the left hand side dark because of the rain clouds and the right hand side relatively brighter.CIMG1775A

It is a picture of contrasting halves, on the right you have the fresh calm water in a reservoir reclaimed from the sea, the armour protection on the right by the side of the road access is still bright and clear. On the left, the sea was already dark and somewhat choppy.

So, this photo taken at Plover Cove Reservoir, Hong Kong contains many contrasting halves!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Converge (Three Gorges)

I was standing on the deck at the very front of the vessel while it cruised noiselessly along the waterway of the Three Gorges in China.

The sun was setting.DSCF6175A

The hills on both sides just converged.

Another surrealistic view!
