I am never tired of photographing the surreal scenery of the limestone columns at Zhangjiajie. Please enjoy :-)
We enjoyed very much the fall foliage in South Korea last Autumn.
For most part of our trip, the weather was fine. However, the weather changed quickly when we were making our way up Daedunsan in a cable car. By the time we were up in the mountain, rain has started. We hiked for a distance up the mountain but the rain was so heavy that we have to retreat. This picture taken just before we retreated, shows the mountain and the foliage in the mist and the rain.
Snow was falling when we reached almost the top. We didn’t have any thick clothes. Many of the pictures taken there appeared as black and white. However, this one taken of the rock slope do have some colors.
The view of a stone column jutting up in the mist with trees on top was just spectacular!
Mist and snow always add a bit of mystery to mountains.
Climbing up the mountains of Zhangjiajie is a challenge.
When morning has broken, we were happy to have a blissful view through the gap between the canyons in Zhangjiajie, China.
This week’s challenge is “Fleeting”
For a fleeting moment, the mist dissipated and we have a good glimpse of the trees and the mountain behind.
However, such moments were brief. In a matter of minutes, again mist was all over us . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
This week’s Challenge is on “Background”. Background generally means the part of a pictorial representation that appears to be in the distance and that provides relief for the principal objects in the foreground.
My favorite picture is one taken in Okinawa’s aquarium. The principal objects are the visitors who were taking pictures or pointing towards the fishes in the aquarium. The interesting thing is that the background was changing all the time, with different types of fishes appearing on the scene.
The nearest hill sloping down into Three Gorges River on the right appears very distinct, however, the two vessels and hills at a distance are somewhat blur; look as if they are disappearing into the mist.
It is fascinating that the background can be as interesting as the principal objects! Good photos have backgrounds that enhance the principal objects so that taken together they form interesting images.
Mystical is the theme for this week at Where’s my backpack?
Is this mystical or just “mistical” ? . . . . . . . . . . . . .
