Sunrise in Namibia

I like sunrise, but as always, I am too lazy to get up very early in the morning.

Sometimes, I do make the effort to rise up very early, but this is rare.P1030233

As a result, I ended up with few sunrise pictures and lots of sun set pictures in my archive.

The first one is a picture of an endless road in Namibia, taken against a sun rise.P1030220

The other picture mainly shows the Namibia sky and clouds.

The last one was taken when the sun has completely risen; showing the lodgings and a curvy footpath.P1030225

All photos were taken by my wife in her trip to Namibia, Africa last month.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Optimistic (Sunrise)

We just have the coldest day in 60 years!

There was snow cum rain in the Tai Mo Shan (mountain) which fell to -5 degrees last night.

There were reports of the same elsewhere;  frost was reported on the lower grounds.

I can only blame global warming which has brought us extreme weather throughout the world.

Snow was never heard of in Hong Kong.

However, I know I have to be optimistic.DSC_0388

The view of sun rise has always brought me hope and even faith in God. This picture was taken in Langkawi, Malaysia.

Let’s be Optimistic and hope that everything will be back to normal in a few days’ time.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning

The Photo Challenge this week is Beginning.

Beginning is quite an abstract notion to show in a photo.

Woke up early in the morning in Langkawi, Malaysia, when morning has just broken, I gazed out from our my window and found this wonderful sight.DSC_0385

This signifies the beginning of a brand new day . . . . . . . . .  . . . .  a day full of hope, warmth and peace !

Travel Theme: Hidden

Ailsa’s Travel theme this week is Hidden.

Woke up early in the morning, I stumbled onto the top deck of our ship that was cruising up the Three Gorges section of the Yangtze River and, as the only person on the deck, I found myself terribly alone.

There was total silence and a thick mist was around me.

Out of the thick mist, I could see mountains rising steeply on both sides of the river. The distant mountains appeared as layers of blue and green before my eyes.DSCF6137

Hidden behind the clouds and sometimes barely visible was our tiny sun.

Dwarfed by the mountains was this partially hidden speck . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  so tiny that I have never seen anything like it before.
