This week’s photo challenge is Shine.
This is another view from Kowloon Bay, on the Eastern side of Kowloon, Hong Kong.
The sun has set but still sending some of its colorful rays up, shining through the clouds.
Watching sun rise and sun set is my favorite pastime.
Here is a picture taken in the fringes of the city, on the Kowloon side, just before the sun sets.
I like the sun down to such a level and the silhouettes of the trees.
The views you get travelling up the Yangtze River are not quite the same as floating down the same river, people told us.
The trip was unforgettable!
I was entranced when we made our way up with the sun setting in front of us. It was surreal!
Most tourists head for the fortress side of Dubrovnik; we did the same too.
For a change, this picture was taken towards the sea, away from the fortresses, when the sun has set.
We were walking back to the hotel and my eyes were captured by the very peaceful feeling of the sea and the cliffs and the lone house by the seaside.
Altogether, a very soothing view!
I have been posting a series known as The Dog that Lived on a Fishing Raft.
It was about the life of a dog whose owner chose to rear this labrador on one of his rafts for rearing fishes in the sea.
For much of the time when the owner was not on the raft, the dog was a loner.
I have stopped posting about him when I heard last summer, this dog Dor Dor was drowned in the sea. He went for a swim but couldn’t get back onto the raft because his body was too heavy ( due to captivity on the raft) and the raft was too high to climb back on.
Here is a photo which shows the great connection between the dog and the owner. May his soul rest in peace.
