Weekly Photo Challenge: Shine ( Through Dark Clouds )

This week’s photo challenge is Shine.

I like pictures which show a lot of contrast.3667527188_8eb00d73d2_oa

This picture taken on the eastern side of the New Territories in Hong Kong illustrates my point.

Dark clouds hung over but penetrated by colorful light.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Shine ( Through Clouds )

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.

Just Before the Sun Goes Down . . . . . . . .

Watching sun rise and sun set is my favorite pastime.

If you are in the city part of Hong Kong, then gazing towards to the West of the Victoria Harbor probably gives you the best view without having to travel any further.4896163873_687f31ac34_o

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.

Please enjoy!

 

Travelling Up the Yangtze River

The views you get travelling up the Yangtze River are not quite the same as floating down the same river, people told us.

I can believe in this as views can be different if you view them the other way.dscf6180

The trip was unforgettable!

I was entranced when we made our way up with the sun setting in front of us. It was surreal!
