Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O ( Another View of Tolo Harbor in the Mist)

Spring this year was particularly misty.

This is another view taken in Tolo Harbor, Hong Kong.img_1708

There is so much contrast between the clear view of the seawall/ breakwater and the view yonder.

All buildings in the distant were shrouded in a thick mist.img_1711

Walking closer towards a pier didn’t change the view much.

The pier jutting out to the sea was like a silhouette – you can clearly see a person cycling on it, but the misty background remains unchanged.

Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O ( Mist in the Harbor )

This is not a monochromatic picture.

It was taken earlier this year with a smart phone when the mist was heavy.

The view is one of Tolo Harbor in the New Territories, Hong Kong.img_1671

Fabulous clouds, layers of mountains as backdrop.

In the foreground are faint outline of high rises.

In the foremost are some fishing boats and sampans.

If you look at the left bottom corner, you will see a bit of the edge of the shore in a different color.

Rain, Rain, Go Away

This year has already seen an unusual amount of rainfall.

As we sipped our tea on the 102 level of the building, we were dismayed by the heavy rain beating against the window pane.CIMG7847

This marred the otherwise fantastic view – this is the view from the tallest building in the area.

The rain drops have smeared the windows, making the views look uninviting.CIMG7848

As somebody with a craze for taking pictures, I wouldn’t mind taking photos of these; recording that the Lord has given me another blessed day.

Another View from Floor 102

We were disappointed when we arrived at the restaurant on level 102 as we couldn’t see anything from the windows on account of the rain and the condensation.

So, we just enjoyed our lunch.

The weather turned better after finished lunch and I have my mint tea.

The mist seemed to be rising from the sea ( Victoria Harbor) as I went near to the window to get some shots.CIMG7843B

The mist seemed so thick and fantastic as I aimed my camera towards the Ocean Center and the China Macau Ferry Terminal on the Kowloon side of Hong Kong.

The view was so surreal!

 

 

The ZhangJiaJie Picture

This is the land which inspired Avatar.

We were strolling among the mist; viewing the strange forest of limestone columns.DSC_0095A

There were so many tall columns, some of which do look like those from Avatar.

I was especially interested in this column top where they have trees on top.

This is just another fairy tale story!

The WuYiShan Picture

Floating down the Nine Bend river on a bamboo raft was one of the scaring moments on this trip.

It was on a cold and raining day when we did this trip.

The rain was falling hard and beating against our body.CIMG0267

Mist has fallen on us.

The WuYi mountains were covered with mist that kept crawling down.

How did we feel – we were almost frightened!

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Half Light ( Misty Afternoon)

March is coming to a close.

By our standards, we have a relatively cold March.

It wasn’t only cold but damp as well; with relative humidity hovering near 100% for long periods of time.IMG_1708

Our usual winter is cold and dry which is more bearable.

This March is more like Winter but damp which makes it unbearable.IMG_1709

Quite often, we have mist in the morning; but the mist didn’t seem to dispel evening in the afternoon.

Here are some smart phone pictures I have taken in the afternoon while walking along the shore of Tolo Harbour, Hong Kong.IMG_1711

The mist have covered up some distant buildings.

Even on walking closer to the pier, the buildings behind still look buried in the mist.

Hope April will bring better weather!
