This week’s DP photo challenge is Look Up.
It was taken during my early hikes in the woods of the Tai Po country park in Hong Kong.
It was almost Autumn; some trees have shed their leaves others still have green leaves.
I can’t help taking out my camera to photograph these Flame of the Forest trees as they are the best I saw in years.
These trees were planted near to the Tai Po town area.
A bright side of climate change?
Here are two pictures taken from my home – they show the same tree but at different season.
The one taken in Winter is striking – it is all bare with branches only; dripping to the ground.
In any case, there is a striking contrast!
This is the season for the blooming of the Flame of The Forest.
My walk took me past this Flame of Forest tree. There are many around in the area while I was driving there.
I have always like these trees in full bloom.
This time of the year, they are just like a flame , on tops of the trees.
What a beautiful fire!
It is rather difficult to find one picture which represents the impressions of Angkor Wat, Cambodia.
However, I rather like this picture which highlight the underlying story behind . . . . . . . the green and lush forest taking over the temple leaving it “undiscovered” for centuries.
Spring and Autumn are the seasons I like best.
Summer is the month I feel most mobile and energetic.
Winter is the season for my hibernation!
How delightful it is to walk around the garden by the lake.
Flowers and green leaves everywhere, one complementing the other.
