Weekly Photo Challenge: Edge (Sea)

This week’s theme for Photo Challenge is Edge.

I like the edges to water.

This is the view in Dubrovnik over looking to the Adriatic Sea.dscf0802a

The very blue waters which pacify and cleanse my soul.

The edge to the sea is a promenade which is an ideal spot for looking to the sea or to the medieval town of Dubrovnik.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Frame ( Dubrovnik 2 )

This week’s photo challenge is Frame.

Many of my pictures taken in Dubrovnik are framed.

There are many picturesque views you see through small windows while walking the Dubrovnik seawalls.DSCF0923

Some of the architecture and arches appear to frame the subject so well too.

The picture was captured while walking the sea walls of Dubrovnik.

I would describe it as frame within frame.

It looks as if the old town and the sea was reviewed frame by frame.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Morning ( By the Sea in Hokkaido )

Woke up in the morning and found it was misty.

Got out of the hotel and walked as far as I could.

Came to a river estuary where the river meets the sea.004

The place was completely quiet apart from the occasional quacks of the wild ducks.

I sat on the pebble protected shallow beach, watching the ducks.006

By now more ducks have moved out from the beach; I presumed that they didn’t like me the stranger.

I admired how blissful these ducks were and have the place almost completely to themselves – except for the intrusion of this stranger.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Morning ( Beach at Harlech)

It was an early morning in 1985.

I stayed at a beach side hotel in Harlech, Wales.

Woke up early in the morning and decided to go down to the beach.

The beach was nothing I have seen in the past. It has some sand dunes piled up quite high parallel to the beach.28-12-2004 4-11-41 PM_0007

I climbed over the dunes; in my climb, I noticed some rabbits jotting about from their hiding places.

When I got over the dunes, my eyes were met with this magnificent sight.

Jesus light from the sky above and lines of waves coming in from the sea.

I was bewildered and took this photo.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Landscape ( Dubrovnik at Sunset )

We were driven up the mountains behind Dubrovnik, Croatia.

As we made our way up the winding roads, the sun was setting.DSCF0978A

We stopped for a while, witnessing the beauty of Dubrovnik against the setting sun.

From here, Dubrovnik is just a small city nestled within some jutting out landforms.

We knew we may pass this way once and once only.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dance ( of the Dolphins )

Have been out to the sea to see the dolphins; but never saw so many dolphins at the same time.

The Video below was taken by my wife while in California.

. . .. . . . . .  it shows a group of dolphins swimming playfully.

It looks as if they were dancing happily.

What a delightful sight!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Harmony ( Koh Samui)

The sun has set; the day was coming to a close.

We were still loitering on the beach of Koh Samui, Thailand.DSC_0578A

The tide has gone out, exposing all the rock and coarse sand.

There was a blue tint everywhere; this was the source of harmony.
