Weekly Photo Challenge: Create


This week theme of Weekly Photo Challenge is CREATE. So I wanted to upload three different types of photos of mine in order to interpret the theme.

Here we go!

Last Sunday I and five friends of mine were going to The National White Water Centre for rafting. The centre is located on the River Tryweryn in Snowdonia, Wales. We were doing rafting for about two hours and it CREATED so much fun and excitement! We enjoyed it so much and we had a good laugh together. That’s the first one.

The second one is the photo of my solar powered lanterns that I just bought last weekend and put them on my back garden. The colour of the lights keep changing and it’s really nice to watch it. I shot it from my first floor. Obviously I didn’t create those lanterns. By putting them on my back garden then it is a part of my CREATION to decorate for, LOL.

The final one is about the nature. Who does CREATE the nature? Whoever the Master behind the nature, I always admire it! Every time I admire them I always remember How Great Thou Art‘s song.

Bala, Love at The First Sight

Image


My first time to visit Bala Lake was in summer 2009 with friends from the church for summer outing. My first impression was WOW and it still remains until now. My second time was summer last year and the third time was on Easter Sunday this year. I just can’t get enough. In Bala I fall in love at the first sight with Wales. Aha! I sounded so poetic, LOL.

Wales is largely mountainous and such a nice place to visit to. It offers you a beautiful, breathtaking, and spectacular scenery. That is the facts. What I love about Wales is its atmosphere and its nuance. It’s very relaxing. Some places still have old fashioned buildings and some houses still keep their old fashioned style as well. I’ve been to some places in Wales such as Llangolen, Holywell, Pantasaph, Rhyl and Prestatyn, Conwy, and of course, Bala.

Bala, Gwynedd in Welsh, is famous with its lake called Bala Lake or Llyn Tegid in Welsh. It’s a tourism place and located in Snowdonia National Park. In the summer there will be more and lots of people doing camping either any outdoor activities. In Bala they still have steam trains that operate alongside Bala Lake Railway.

Here some pictures of Bala that I took last year and last Easter Sunday.

My Photojournalism: The Wintry Weather in UK

Image


March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. That is an English proverb to describe the typical weather in March. Apparently this time of year it happened the other way round in United Kingdom (UK).

March started with beautiful and pleasant weather, sunny and dry. I read on a newspaper about a week ago that this is the hottest March in UK in 55 years. Unfortunately the weather turned out chilly in the last week.

Back to the English proverb. According to the article on Wikipedia it is said that the proverb is applied to the month of April more often than March in Wales. Apparently it is true. The weather forecast had predicted a week ago that there would be snow coming and there would be a chance to have snow on Easter! They were right except for having snowed on Easter. There were some snow at the time but the melting ones as I saw it when I went to North Wales on Sunday.

So now UK is having wintry weather in the spring time! I even have to wear my winter coat back due to the weather conditions at the moment.

Weird but Beautiful

I walked along the beach and found this kind of weird thing. Initially, I thought it was rock. Apparently it was quite soft like a jelly when I touched it. I don’t know what it was. There were many like this on that beach.
