Here is a picture taken at a beach in Hong Kong when the sun was setting.
I like the atmosphere and both halves of the picture – the beach and the sky.
The DP’s theme for this week is Half and Half.
Photographers talk about the rule of thirds.
Taking pictures half / half is usually not recommended.
The picture was taken by my wife when she was in Bryce, as part of her trip to the South Western.
The sun was setting – the sky and the canyon were almost half / half.
I am glad that the Challenge for this week is Silhouette – as I have quite a few photos to show.
The first photo was taken by my sister-in-law in Botswana.
The sun was setting and the beauty of the image is not in the silhouette itself, but in the sky and the reflections in the water.
This week’s Sunday Stills Challenge is Sunrise and Sunset.
We love beaches in Langkawi so much that we were always out on the beach when we were there. We did not stay on any beach for a long length of time but wandered from one to another trying to enjoy the best sights and the best moments. The best moments, to us, include sunrise, sunsets and moonrise.
But wait! the moon appeared, a different light mellowed upon the sea. The moonlight refelcted peacfully from a hotel located next to the beach. The moon light cast a giant shadow of the hotel on the calm water. People walked along the beach enjoying the beautiful scene. It was this sort of timeless moment we have been waiting for.
We took a deep breath and soaked up as much of nature as we could. On seeing this breathtaking sight, we were filled with gratitude and were thankful we were given another new sunny day!
