Weekly Photo Challenge: Shine ( Through Trees and Leaves 7 )

This week’s photo challenge is Shine.

I like photographing against the light; in particular I like photographing trees and leaves against in coming light.

If the camera is set as Automatic, this usually poses a problem as the light sensor will sense there is strong light and the aperture will automatically reduce, giving a picture which is too dark.dsc_0285

I intend to upload a series of photos which has been shot against the light.

Here is a photo taken in a Chinese garden in Zhangjiajie, a companion photo to the earlier one. See the light that falls on the bamboo leaves; lovely?

Please enjoy!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Seasons ( Misty )

I know Misty is not a season.

But there are times within a season when it is especially misty, due to the humidity and the temperatures.DSC_0116

We were wandering in the mountains of ZhangJiaJie, China when mist came upon us.

We were like in Avatar, with the mist surrounding and not knowing which direction to proceed.DSC_0044

It was all fun and a bit adventurous.

Hope to be in the midst of mist again in my next hike!
