Clouds

The sun is overhead and we see even clearer now. The umbrella shade of the pine trees, their sprawling branches, the steep cliffs and the never-ending sea of clouds floating so low. I would have held my hands out to touch the clouds if I could, their mesmerising beauty almost hynoptized me into believing the impossible is possible.

Top of the world

My all time favourite is this photo which I used as my blog’s header. It was memorable and significant for me because:

  1. I travelled very far to China to pay a visit to Huang Shan.
  2. I woke up at unearthly hours to shoot the sunrise.
  3. I trekked for an hour in the dark, risking falling off the cliff, before I reached the lookout point.
  4. What greeted me at sunrise took my breath away.
  5. No pain, no gain. Every time, I see this shot, I feel like I’m on top of the world, holding the most precious pearl in my hand, grateful to be alive to see the beauty of the world.
