Tree-mendous Atmosphere

There’s something magical about walking through the trees. I love how they provide shades and natural air-conditioning. It feels good getting some cool fresh air and enjoying the beautiful greenery.  Moments like these uplift my spirits.

Reed Flute Cave

Is a fascinating gallery of limestone cave formations in Guilin, China. The cave derived its name from a type of reed growing at the entrance of the site, which can be created into melodious flutes and other wind instruments. I've been to a number of caves in different locations but nothing quite like this one.

The cave is filled with tons of stalactites, stalagmites and rock formations in different shapes and sizes that are millions of years old. I find it truly amazing that the caves are still in such good shape after all of these years.

Illuminated by the rainbow coloured lights, everything looks magical and the water seems to be perfectly still.

The walkways are spacious and the cave has great lighting to see each area of interest.

However, when large groups were not around, the coloured lights would turned off, so I had to time my shots carefully and fast before the lights went out.

Some photos didn't turn out pretty well but at least I was able to get a few good ones worth sharing.  Hope you'll like them too.

Peaceful landscapes

Sun Moon Lake is one of my favourite places in Taiwan. I find it really peaceful and it's hard to say goodbye to such a wonderful place.

Peacock Garden, Taiwan

This wonderful garden has the most beautiful peacocks that I have ever seen. There are many kinds of species and I find all of them amazing in its own way.

There are dozens of peacocks roaming freely in a large enclosure and they make unusual noises when they start squawking.

It was the mating season and the male peacocks would delightfully spread their beautiful feathers  to attract the females.

Mr Peacock was kind enough to allow me to take as many pictures, at close range, as I like

His pretty plumage were eye-popping to say the least.

Here's a back view of him flaunting its tail to impress the opposite

Another shot of him showing off his wonderful feathers.

I think I've been lucky this round to capture a peacock from so many different angles. A co-operative and friendly model.

Winter Trees

We came across these bare trees at different spots in Istanbul. I love the shapes of the trees and the vast expanse of branches reaching for the sky.

Recycled bottle fish


These decorative artwork are created from the recycled soju (Korean liquor) bottles. Isn't it great to see such items are reused and not thrown away?

Scenic Weekends - Memories of Ephesus

Here's a typical view of the ruins and structures scattered across the landscape at The Ancient Ruins of Ephesus in Turkey

Beautiful in its own right and reveals a lot about the rich historical past.

The entire environment is peaceful and the lush greenery is so soothing to the eyes

The surrounding views made it a worthwhile stop and I love the beautiful bursts of spring popping around the place

And here's another one standing tall in all its glory.

There's really no way to fully appreciate the art of acrobatic dancing without seeing it in person. This lovely duo portrayed their acro expertise in a variety of positions and they made it look all so easy. Wow simply wow.
