This is a photo which I have never posted.
The water up in the lakes of Jiuzhaigou, China is blue; it is so rich in calcium.
The surrounding is so serene, the area is lush, together with the lake, they make a great picture.
This is like a post card!
If you like my post of yesterday then you probably like this one as well.
Again, it is a picture taken in the Ritsurin Garden, Shinkoku after a heavy down pour.
This helped to dispel any dust particle in the air and resulted in a clear image.
The reflection in the lake is again fascinating!
This week’s photo challenge is Edge.
I have always like edges to the water, whether it is sea or lake.
Here are a few shots taken at the edge of the lake Geneve near Morges.
It is idyllic to see yachts on a calm lake, as the ones I saw that day in Morges.
The flowers at the edges of the lake were also lovely.
I can sit there all day, just gazing to the lake, watching the water and the clouds.
Surely, there are people like me, relaxing near to the water edge.
These are wonderful views to be enjoyed.
This week’s theme is Edge.
I have shown this picture a few times before.
This will not be the last time I show it.
The fence there marks the edge to a paradise. . . . . . . . . it makes me come back to my senses and prevent me from falling into the paradise.
Picture was taken in JiuZhaiGou, China in Autumn.
This week’s photo challenge is Frame.
This is a screen window I came across in a building overlooking West Lake, China.
The screen is a skillfully carved timber frame which allows sunlight to come in and at the same time offers a view of the lake,
When I took the picture, my focus was more on the screen and less of the lake.
At the bottom of the screen were two egrets as part of the carving but they look so real!
Not sure this is really Opposite.
Is the colorful mountain opposite to the blue lake?
Or is the cloudy sky opposite to the water?
The picture was taken in JiuZhaiGou, Yunnan where the placid lake has a special blue tint because of the calcium dissolved in it.
The sun has just set and it was the golden hour in Botswana.
The lake was so quiet and tranquil.
The clouds and their reflections were lovely too.
This photo was taken by my sister-in-law.
