Last month has been the wettest January Hong Kong has seen since records began 132 years ago, the Hong Kong Observatory has announced.
As of Friday afternoon, over 260mm of rainfall had been recorded, the Observatory said, making this month the wettest January since 1884. Previously, the wettest on record was January 1887, when 214.3mm of rain fell.
The first picture is the mist outside my window. I have changed it to Black and White to make it look more moody.
The second picture was taken in the portrait format. There were so many raindrops on my window pane.
Go away, El Nino!
Thick mist floating down from the mountain top!
The mist seemed weightless while floating down from the WuYiShan ( Mountain) in China as we drifted down the river in a bamboo raft.
I think I am contracting myself – the mist must have weight to pour down from the top of the mountain, but still, I do like to think that they are weightless and the moment timeless!
As we ascended the Daedunsan Mountain in South Korea, we were engulfed in mist.
The view from the cable car was interesting.
The foliage have partially changed their color during the fall.
I was wondering whether I should take pictures as the mist was thick and also I could only take them through the glass windows of the cable car.
Here are two samples of the picture I have taken; hope that you like it.
I think I would not attempt to hike the Milford Track in New Zealand.
I have made my decision after seeing this photo taken by my wife.
Mind you, this photo wasn’t taken as a Black and White photo.
This to me, seems too intimidating!
Just wonder whether Milford Sound has always been cloudy.
Maybe, the only question is whether it is overcast, partially covered, dark clouds on a rainy day or white clouds on a good day.
Moody picture taken by my wife who is still travelling in New Zealand.
This is what we saw when we were near the highest point of the mountain.
Actually, it was just wonderful not seeing much!
I guess it was the point we could get as closest as possible to heaven.

Sanqing Shan is famous for its strange rocks, strangely shaped pines and the mist.
My four photos here will not do justice to the scenery there, but these are the best I have got, given the short stay there.
Many of the pines are older than 100 years.
They reach out for more sunlight, more air and moisture.
Sanqing Shan is a UNESCO site.
