footprints of a mighty God

IMG_0463IMG_0628IMG_0589

My island hometown is significantly divided by a range of mountains and hills right in its middle..although quite small but my memories of home are always  the mountains and the sea. Thus  the  Third Day’s song   These Thousand Hills are footprints of a mighty God”  has become  one of my favorite…indeed when I see nature I see an awesome God behind it…the hills and the  mountains became my signposts which  reminded me  that He is bigger than everything else in this  life…in this world…

Cooling off

Since I  can remember I always love looking at National Geographic’s  vivid  pictures of all sorts of wildlife. Last summer,  in a hot afternoon  in Suzhou, a Chinese friend and I visited one of its many nature parks. By the way Suzhou is famous for  its canals and gardens. I thought it was just perfect to spend it in a park full of man-made ponds and  lots of trees. As we stroll leisurely we came across this sight. I’m thinking this is my first almost like a NG (magazine) shot, of course it is far from it since my camera is below par  for that. But it was  refreshing to see these geese just immersed in their own world and oblivious to us.

cherishing autumn

Took my first autumn shots today. In this part of China I can’t almost experience the fall season . Winter sneaks in too soon unknowingly.  Where I’ m in the wind is  strong so one moment the leaves are still on the trees and the next moment  the wind has blown them away. But this year seems different . It looks like  autumn is lingering  for me to enjoy its magnificent colors. My favorite is  this climbing ivy with a blueberry like seed. It is a beautiful sight as it changes colors slow enough for me to enjoy  its changing hues. Indeed coming from a tropical country autumn has become my favorite time of the year more so because of its color. I love it!

pretty n dainty legacy

Just  a month ago , a sister of mine shared  this photo…it is one of the garden flowers we had at my parents home. My sister who is not really into photography but more into flowers has managed to take this beautiful shot after a heavy downpour . My mother who passed  away six  years ago  was a green thumb, had left so many beautiful flowers to us .  My parents home were occupied now with other siblings so change is inevitable somehow,  just recently they wanted a bigger lawn for kids to run around so we lost some of the flowers that my mother had cared for  many years. But I am so happy to see that they saved this  beautiful shrub, one of my favorite.

Up close with a beauty

I finally got the  chance to visit the local zoo last week. Like most zoos here in China people are encouraged to feed the animals . Of  course I have to buy  the feed myself which means extra income for the zoo. What I enjoyed most is getting close to the animals, because they are used to people giving them  goodies the animals are not afraid to get near you. In the bird sanctuary I found this peacock roaming around freely waiting  for us to give it corns./ seeds…she even allowed me to pet her for a few seconds …thus I got this opportunity to get  this very close up shot! Awesome!
