This week’s DP photo challenge is Boundary.
The trees on this picture and the fence mark the boundary to the lake.
However, the beauty does not just stop at the boundary, it continues on to the blue crystal clear lake and beyond.
Beauty cannot be contained within boundaries; it penetrates through until it reaches the heart and mind of those who see it.
This is a casual shot up in the mountains of Switzerland some years ago!
Hope this illustrates Monochromatic which is the theme of this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge.
How I like the trees and the various shades of green!
Green is my colour.
Here is a picture taken in the Ritsurin Garden, Shinkoku, Japan.
The tree branches were dripping down to the lake.
The picture was taken after heavy rain which stirred up the lake water.
The picture was basically in different shades of green.
I think I have said too many times that my one day tour in Riturin Garden, Shikoku was a very good day.
I have enjoyed everything I saw there, from lotus flowers to strangely shaped trees, streams to Monet type footbridge, watching kois and even tea tasting in a tea house there.
I have shown many photos of the garden in my various posts; but there are still photos which I have not shown but I would like to share.
Here are some of those.
The first one is in fact a panoramic view of the garden, which I have pieced together using two photos.
The other ones would reinforce one’s perception of the serenity of the garden.
It wasn’t a good day in terms of weather; as it has been raining cats and dogs.
However, we did have a good day in the Ritsurin Garden, Shikoku, Japan.
Watching lotus, artistically twisted and trimmed trees, a Japanese style bridge which resembles the Monet footbridge, have Japanese tea tasting etc.
All in all, it was a good day.
I like the lotus flowers most, although they were shattered by the heavy down pour.
For those who are interested in the garden, please see my other posts.
This place Jiuzhaigou has afforded me a lot of inspirational moments.
Lush trees standing out so clearly from the background mountains.
Clouds just beyond the yonder mountain covering partially the mountain top.
The blue water of the placid lake forming seemingly the first layer, followed by layers of different colors.
These are my inspirations!
Sometimes, it is difficult to know the scale of things without anything to gauge or compare.
Here is a picture that I have captured on my hiking, while admiring at the buttress form of the mountain rocks and the plants and trees that have overgrown on them.
On the left upper corner, there is a trial supported on beams socketted into rocks. Hikers are walking on it.
From this, we can appreciate the scale of the mountain features!
