Weekly Photo Challenge: Shine ( Through Trees and Leaves 7 )

This week’s photo challenge is Shine.

I like photographing against the light; in particular I like photographing trees and leaves against in coming light.

If the camera is set as Automatic, this usually poses a problem as the light sensor will sense there is strong light and the aperture will automatically reduce, giving a picture which is too dark.dsc_0285

I intend to upload a series of photos which has been shot against the light.

Here is a photo taken in a Chinese garden in Zhangjiajie, a companion photo to the earlier one. See the light that falls on the bamboo leaves; lovely?

Please enjoy!

Please enjoy!

Watching Kois

The recent Weekly Photo Challenges are just too difficult to me and I opt to post on other topics.

One of my pastime is watching kois swimming in a pond.

I can never forget watching them swimming in a tourist spot known as “Watching Kois in a Flower Pond” in the West Lake, China.dscf6440

That Winter day was cold and raining, giving a blue hue to the whole picture.

Ripples were set up in the water because of the rain.

Large schools of kois swam up and rushed together in the race for food.

That’s marvelous!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror ( Sky )

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.11960017_1164400920243713_5924525724566303271_n

The quiet water serves as a mirror.

The picture was taken by my classmate YM Chan for whom credit is due.

Please enjoy 🙂
