Journey

I was in Taiwan two weeks ago…  We went up to Alishan trying to take some photos of the clouds.  Unfortunately, the weather was not too good.  We then went shopping near one of the old railway stations.

I went into the museum next to the old rail and I found the train that used to run on this route.

This looked familiar and I remember I took a picture with this type of train last time when I visited Alishan in 1971.

Time flies…  What a memory!  I’m older and hopefully wiser.  But this type of train is now displaying in the museum.  It no longer brings people from one place to other. But it brings us history and a lot of memory…

Well, to me, life is just a journey that everyone of us goes thru! Isn’t it?

Island

Hong Kong Island, I think, is one of the busiest islands in the world…  It’s a financial centre. It’s crowded.  It has a lot of energy both days and nights…

Hong Kong

Hong Kong is my home…  I was born and raised up here.

I love Hong Kong!  Come and visit us!

 

 

 

Hummingbird

I met this pretty bird last May in San Jorge Eco-lodge in Tandayapa, Ecuador, first time in my life…

Thanks Luis Alcivar for teaching me how to shoot them.  What a memory!

I met different types of herons in Galapagos last May…  They are so different!

Frame

I was in Taichung last week…  We passed by a very famous shop.  It’s used to be the Taichung Health Centre in the past.  But now it’s re-designed into a shopping centre and restaurant.  However, it kept the original frame outside to let people remember it’s past and it’s original design.

This photo was taken on the lake side last month…   This lake is 4441 meters above sea level, one of the three most famous holy lakes in Tibet.

Tibet – the highland in China

Longing to visit Tibet for the past 20 years and I finally got a chance to be there in April…

My original target was only the Potala Palace in Lhasa given that it’s the most famous place in Tibet.  Surprisingly, I’ve found there are a lot of natural beauties around areas like Linzhi: the blossom of peach trees, the thousand years glacier, the snow mountains, the lakes, just to name a few.

The Jokhang Temple in Lhasa, the religious centre of Tibet is a must go for us to understand how Tibetan worship their gods!

Last but not the least, we visited the Potala Palace, the centre of power in Tibet…  There are too many things we can learn from this palace, it’s history, it’s art, it’s culture, it’s precious collections, it’s religious background, it’s architecture…

You can only be there to taste it… 🙂

 

Mi Dui Glacier in Tibet…

從沒想過到西藏可以欣賞冰川… 這米堆冰川,湖面海拔3800米,主峰海拔6385米,主要是由兩條700米至800米的世界級冰瀑布匯流而成。要欣賞這冰川,我們要在高原行走一個多小時的彎曲高低石徑,才能到達湖面,這是我們西藏行最辛苦的一段…

Flash

A flash from God gives us lives and energy… doesn’t it?

White…

One of the whitest things in the natural world is snow…

This photo was taken few days ago in one of the valleys (5013 meters above sea level) in Tibet.  We all wore heavy clothes and couldn’t even breath.  However, these sparrows were enjoying themselves among the snow…  It’s amazing!white with sparrows
