Jiuzhaigou – Before and After the Recent Earthquake
It takes millions of years to create the picturesque environment of the beautiful lakes in Jiuzhaigou, China.
The placid and serene lakes there are known for their mirror like reflection. The water is so clear that you can see the bottom of the lakes.
Water with calcium in it flows through the area creating bund like structures and series of terraces.
The water is so blue as it has no living plants in there; trees fallen over in the lake are progressively calcified.
The waterfalls are gone, the bunds disappeared.
Perhaps, the area will never recover . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity ( of the Trees)
<This post contains 2 images>
Those who have been following me know that I like photographing trees.
Here are a couple of photos taken with my little compact camera while at the Ritsurin Garden, Japan last year.
The trees seem to be making a statement. They fit in so well with the environment.
I derive so much serenity from just looking at them.
What will the world be like without any trees?
Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity (at Hokkaido)
The theme of Serenity runs through my blog.
Here is the Serenity Prayer:
Serenity Prayer – God Grant Me The Serenity – Full Version
God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
As it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
If I surrender to His Will;
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with Him
Forever and ever in the next.
