This week the theme for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is Reflection, from Patti Moed.
The photos I selected for this post are reflections of water I admired during different trips near and far.
This is Puente
de Alcántara Bridge over the calm river, Toledo Spain.
I took a
photo of the yacht during our whale watching trip at Newport Harbor California.
On the same
day of the whale watching, we had dinner at the beach and watched the sunset.
went to China and visited Guilin. This is Reed Flute Cave with different color
lights revealing the rock formation and the reflections from the underground
I have been
living in southern California for 40 years. Last week was the first time my
husband and I went on a cruise to see the Holiday Lights. All the homes, their
yachts, cruise boats and restaurants by the water were decorated with Christmas
lights. It was a treat from my daughter!
Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #25 – Reflections
Alaska was one of the exciting places we have traveled. We watched so much about glacier on National Geographic or BBC channels. But there is nothing like seeing it close up.
We flew to Anchorage. I had my heaviest jacket on when we went to the tourist center. The tour guide said, “Are you from California?” Then I looked around and realized that I was the only teddy bear.
We took the cruise boat to watch the glacier. I felt cold only when the boat got close to the glacier.
After the cruise, we did rafting on a calm river!! When driving around town, we noticed that more people owned seaplanes than cars. It makes sense because only seaplanes can get to and from many of the islands.
The exciting part of our trip was the helicopter ride to the top of the glacier. My husband is a helicopter pilot. The tour pilot said if my husband had his license with him, he would let my husband fly. Anyway, I took a lot of close up photos of the glacier. Eventually the tour pilot found a flat spot to land. We walked around and took photos, and took one for the cruise boat from above!
