Weekly Photo Challenge: Tiny ( Leaves )

This week’s DP photo challenge theme is Tiny.

We were driving from Annecy, France towards Switzerland.

Shortly after we crossed the border, we reached a cable stayed pedestrian cable stayed footbridge of very old construction.

We took a short break and walked across the footbridge.cimg1599

From the middle of the footbridge, we looked down the valley with a running stream; it was lush, with a lot of tiny leaves during the Spring time.

The light shone on the leaves; giving a fresh and very green look.

 

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O ( Fountains )

This week’s photo challenge is H2O.

I like photographing water in its different forms and states.dscf0270

Photographing fountains is my favorite too.

The first one is a picture taken in the peace memorial park in Hiroshima.

I have adopted a slow shutter speed and a shallow depth of field.

At the bottom of the fountain, the water came bubbling up.dscf1165

The second photo was taken in Geneva, Switzerland.

I must admit my main focus was on the trees and the shadows although the fountain is an indispensable part of the photo.

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Edge ( of Lake Geneva )

This week’s photo challenge is Edge.

I have always like edges to the water, whether it is sea or lake.dscf0043

Here are a few shots taken at the edge of the lake Geneve near Morges.

It is idyllic to see yachts on a calm lake, as the ones I saw that day in Morges.dscf0042

The flowers at the edges of the lake were also lovely.

I can sit there all day, just gazing to the lake, watching the water and the clouds.dscf0045

Surely, there are people like me, relaxing near to the water edge.

These are wonderful views to be enjoyed.
