Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O ( House of Dancing Water )

Water sprung up from all sides as the show went on.

The pavilion was raised suddenly from under the performing platform.dscf0674

Dancers gathered round and the main actor and actress went into the pavilion.

This was part of the show House of Dancing Water in Macau.

Water is of course the main theme.

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: H2O ( Plitvice Lakes 2 )

This week’s photo challenge is H2O.

I have request to post some more images of water in the Plitvice National lakes.

There are some places on earth which make you think you are totally engulfed in a world of water.dscf0300

The Plitvice National Lakes in Croatia is one of them.

I was standing there taking a photo;  what occurred to me was that water was coming towards me from all sides.

In this series I will be showing some of them with water as the main feature.

Hope you like them!

Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O ( Milford Sound )

This is what you see from a launch at Milford Sound, New Zealand.img_0044

An avalanche of water comes crashing down!

Picture was taken by my sister-in-law to whom credit is due.

Blue, Blue, My World is Blue 3 . . . . . . . .

I think I am cheating a bit.

This is not exactly blue; but this photo contains the two colors I like – blue and green.

Like the other photos, the water is blue.dscf0274a

The photo was taken in the Plitvice national Lakes in Croatia.

Again, the water has a lot of calcium.

 

Travelling Up the Yangtze River

The views you get travelling up the Yangtze River are not quite the same as floating down the same river, people told us.

I can believe in this as views can be different if you view them the other way.dscf6180

The trip was unforgettable!

I was entranced when we made our way up with the sun setting in front of us. It was surreal!
