Weekly photo Challenge: Half Light ( Valley of the Shadow of Death)

This week, we are asked to submit images on the subject of Half Light.

We are to submit them relating to a poem, lyrics of a song, story, etc.

I already have a draft prepared, but my hike this afternoon has made me changed my mind when I walked through the dark part of a valley and took this image with a smart phone.

The image reminds me of the verses in Psalms 23.4 as follows.

Psalms 23:4 

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou [art] with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.IMG_1746

Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Depth

Usually, I will try to submit several entries on the WPC’s weekly theme.

The first entry is usually about something which immediately comes to mind when reading the Daily Press ‘s WPC.

Then, I would go for a search in my archive to see what else can be submitted as well.

For this week’s challenge, the view from the top of a mountain on the Langkawi island, Malaysia immediately came to mind.DSC_0290

We were up on this mountain and the cable car brought us even higher up. From the top of the mountain, we saw a deep valley below and as a background, we have the blue sea separated by a layer of white clouds from the equally blue sky.

The steeply rising hill contrasts quite a bit with the valley below!
