We don’t have many days like this, wandering among endless fields of canola or rapeseed flowers.
This place at Luoping, Yunnan is a paradise for photographers.
No matter which way you do it, it was a good day spending there, wandering around and having close encounters with nature.
<This post consists of two photos>
I have always loved the yellow color.
To me, they represent hope and joy.
The picture is taken in Luoping, China in one of those trips to Guizhou and Yunnan.
Thank God for creating such flowers!
This week’s photo challenge is Focus.
The challenger showed two pictures with two different depth of fields to illustrate Focus. That is a relatively easy job.
I would think it is more difficult to come up with is a picture that viewers quickly recognize that certain subject(s) is the Focus of the picture, without actually focusing it with a camera or without coloring the subject against a monochromatic background (which some clever photographers can do with a software).
Here are some photos which I would like to illustrate Focus.
It will be interesting to see how viewers see images – what they focus on and why!
More yellow rapeseed flowers to brighten up on a Monday . . . . . . . . . . . . .
We were driven around in an environmentally friendly electrical cart, firstly up the Wan Feng Lin mountains in Yunnan (shown as an almost horizontal line mid-hill on the image) and then actually down to the yellow fields!
The fingers of mountains rose quite steeply from the plains. . . . . . . so steep as if they were unreal. At the base, was a line of village houses.
The foreground was a bit blur, due to the movement of the electrical vehicle, but nevertheless, it is another sight we would remember for a long time to come.
This is Yellow Monday again; but I can assure you that it will not be another week of all Thai colors.
After posting every day last week ( continuous eight posts including this one), I am sort of exhausted.
When I first blogged, out of naivety, I called this blog – RetireeDiary, thinking I was going to write something everyday in a second language. Last week has taught me the lesson that doing so will be more like work ( and not retirement)!
I love the yellow fields of canola / rapeseed flowers in Luoping, Yunnan; so I am posting another picture of it to uplift my spirit and wishing you all a good start of a new week leading almost into Easter!
