Green is my colour.
The tree branches were dripping down to the lake.
The picture was taken after heavy rain which stirred up the lake water.
The picture was basically in different shades of green.
On a rainy day, we found ourselves hiking laboriously in the mountains of Snowdonia, Wales.
My shoes were soaked, water penetrated my shoes, part of the skin on the feet has come off.
Llyn Llydaw – 1,430 feet (440 m) high, 110 acres (45 ha) – lies in Cwm Dyli, Snowdon’s eastern cwm, and is one of Snowdonia’s deepest lakes, at up to 190 ft (58 m) deep.
There was clearly a connection down to and across the lake, in the form of a causeway.
On that gloomy day, we did hike down and across the lake, in the form of a causeway. A day always remembered.
This place Jiuzhaigou has afforded me a lot of inspirational moments.
Lush trees standing out so clearly from the background mountains.
The blue water of the placid lake forming seemingly the first layer, followed by layers of different colors.
These are my inspirations!
The DP’s theme for this week is Half and Half.
Photographers talk about the rule of thirds.
Taking pictures half / half is usually not recommended.
This picture was taken at Lake Geneva at Morges, Switzerland.
The sea and the lake are basically of the same color, highlighted by some clouds and yachts.
It was a view to behold.
This week’s photo challenge is Rule of Thirds.
I learned this rule very early but have basically forgotten about it when taking pictures.
I would like to think this is a rule for the novice so as to get them away taking photos with subject of interest exactly at the center.
The picture here was taken by my wife while travelling in the South West of USA, visiting many national parks.
On this picture, the tree trunks are taken at almost the third points, leaving a lot of “empty” space to show the background – in observance of the rule proposed by the Challenger.
Unfortunately, this is the only one picture I can find right now fitting this week’s theme!
The theme of Serenity runs through my blog.
Here is the Serenity Prayer:
Serenity Prayer – God Grant Me The Serenity – Full Version
God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
As it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
If I surrender to His Will;
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with Him
Forever and ever in the next.
Don’t think I have sufficient material to write a good book on Annecy, France.
Of course, there is the Annecy lake which is so picturesque.
If I ever write a book on Annecy, this will be my Cover photo.
The castle (which was actually a prison) stands in the middle of the waterway. Two birds were gliding past – what a sight!
Please enjoy :-)
