The Vilinus Picture

Some of the pictures I have taken are to remind me where I have been.

However, I got very mixed up with the images I have in the Baltic countries, especially those in the old towns.

Here is a picture I have on Vilinus, Lithuania. It includes all the major landmark cathedrals and buildings in Vilinus.DSC_0329A

It looks very similar with my others taken in the other two Baltic countries.

In any case, I did have a good time in all three countries!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Landscape ( Outside My Window)

Saturday is not a good day for publishing a post.

My statistics show it is a day with the least number of viewers in the week.

I usually upload my post in the morning; which is Friday night in the USA.

Over one-third of my readers are from the States, many others are from the English speaking countries and almost none from mainland China ( I surmise WordPress is not popular or forbidden in China).

I can only conclude people are more interested in going out than reading blogs on a Friday night.

So, I am left with the choice of not uploading any post at all on Saturday or uploading something which is mediocre or something which takes little time and efforts to prepare.. DSCF0847

The latter is not a good choice as readers may perceive that the standard on my blog is mediocre ( maybe, this actually is the case!).

OK, as for today, I will just upload a picture which shows the landscape outside my living room.

It has been taken effortlessly with a zoom lens, so it shows only part of the scenery – the more attractive part!

It shows layers of trees when we were getting close to Autumn.

The mountain behind is called the Pat Sin Range – a mountain with eight small humps at the top. Literally translated, it means a range of Eight Fairies.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Half Light ( Canyon 2 )

Another photo from the Canyon which was taken by my wife.

I think she has beautifully composed this picture, with the jutting out tree and the bird blocking about half the light, but still leaving the lower portion covering the tops of the canyon.CIMG4957

Just wonder where she learned her skills – she doesn’t even seem to know how to use all the buttons on the camera!


Weekly Photo Challenge: Forces of The Nature (Utah)

The National Parks in the South West of the States are a good source for illustrating the Forces of Nature.

The forces may include: erosion, high differential temperatures, wind, gravity etc.DSCF3995

The process is repeated for millions of years.

We are only seeing a snapshot  of a long and continuing process.
