This week’s DP photo challenge is Mirror.
A serene water surface is a mirror.
Here is a picture – the focus of which is not the green lotus leaves but the sky above with the sun and the clouds.
The quiet water serves as a mirror.
The picture was taken by my classmate YM Chan for whom credit is due.
Please enjoy 🙂
It was a cold morning at West Lake, China.
The lotus have all weathered, leaving their stalks.
What attracted me most was the pavilion which seemed to have sprung over the tranquil lake water.
I like the silhouette of the whole thing which appeared before my weary eyes.
Is this from an Oriental fairy tale?
I think I have said too many times that my one day tour in Riturin Garden, Shikoku was a very good day.
I have enjoyed everything I saw there, from lotus flowers to strangely shaped trees, streams to Monet type footbridge, watching kois and even tea tasting in a tea house there.
I have shown many photos of the garden in my various posts; but there are still photos which I have not shown but I would like to share.
Here are some of those.
The first one is in fact a panoramic view of the garden, which I have pieced together using two photos.
The other ones would reinforce one’s perception of the serenity of the garden.
It wasn’t a good day in terms of weather; as it has been raining cats and dogs.
However, we did have a good day in the Ritsurin Garden, Shikoku, Japan.
Watching lotus, artistically twisted and trimmed trees, a Japanese style bridge which resembles the Monet footbridge, have Japanese tea tasting etc.
All in all, it was a good day.
I like the lotus flowers most, although they were shattered by the heavy down pour.
For those who are interested in the garden, please see my other posts.
The opening of the red lotus flowers at Angkor Wat, Cambodia marked the start of a fresh new day.
The Lord has given us a new day.
We will take it gracefully as it arrives!
This will be my last submission on the theme of Rule of Thirds.
I have always loved lotus flowers.
They always look serene and meditative.
The photo with the flower on the left third was taken by my classmate YM Chan.
Please enjoy 🙂
