Blue, Blue, My World is Blue. . . . . . .

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.100

The surrounding is so serene, the  area is lush, together with the lake, they make a great picture.

This is like a post card!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror ( Risturin Garden 2 )

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.cimg5549

This helped to dispel any dust particle in the air and resulted in a clear image.

The reflection in the lake is again fascinating!

 

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Edge ( of Lake Geneva )

This week’s photo challenge is Edge.

I have always like edges to the water, whether it is sea or lake.dscf0043

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.dscf0042

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.dscf0045

Surely, there are people like me, relaxing near to the water edge.

These are wonderful views to be enjoyed.

 

Weekly photo Challenge: Edge ( to Water Paradise )


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.065a

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge : Frame ( West Lake 1 )

This week’s photo challenge is Frame.

This is a screen window I came across in a building overlooking West Lake, China.CIMG1124

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!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Opposite (Jiuzhaigou)

Not sure this is really Opposite.

Is the colorful mountain opposite to the blue lake?

Or is the cloudy sky opposite to the water?013

The picture was taken in JiuZhaiGou, Yunnan where the placid lake has a special blue tint because of the calcium dissolved in it.
