Tourmaline

Tourmaline have great variety of colors but these little rocks are in my collection.  I also have small tumbled black Tourmaline, not just in the photos).

Pink, Green, and Watermelon.

These look boiling candy and fascinate me as good as it gets, but they also make me feel warm and soothing.

I hope I could share their good energy with you too.  🙂

A piece of work of the day 26

So this is another piece of work for which I had drawn this for the same subject.

Again, I struggled with drawing hand.  I would have drawn it visible but in translucent, but all the combinations of the figure, the lines, the choice of the colors, hue, shade…made it a little too invisible or hard to see.

Well anyway, this was my best I tried for the work, and it will be great if this leaves something in you.

Everyone has beautiful soul in yourselves, but many of us got lost to keep it shined in the busy and complicated day to day life.  Our modern life makes us easy to build worries and pressures, and get lost ourselves by fatigues.

With my sincere hope of my friend’s recovery from depression…

Lens-Artists Weekly Photo Challenge #19: Magical Light

I went to Waikiki beach every day at sunset during my short stay at Honolulu in September.  I photographed the sunset beach in many shots and this is one of them.

As we all know, every sunset is different that you will appreciate on the day, and which would be different from the one you saw yesterday.  And this was one of the reasons  why it kept me back at the beach every day.

This is my first contribution to Lens-Artists Weekly Photo Challenge.

One Word Sunday: Purple

Pale Indigo?  Yes, this is pale in hue but is still purple to me.  😉

Jacaranda season is back in Sydney.  They turn Sydney and suburbs to beautiful purple, as if that’s their way to celebrate spring season grounded.

Luckily, my bedroom is being a prime spot for appreciation, because there are three Jacaranda trees in front of the unit building where I live.

This is my (belated) contribution to this week’s One Word Sunday: Purple, hosted by TRAVEL WITH INTENT.

Full moon of the month

I missed taking her at moon rise on the full moon night because the forecast said that the evening would have been cloudy and I did not bring my camera when I left house in the morning.  The forecast ended not correct that the beautiful full moon rose and I admired her beauty at the house as cooking dinner.

I got this chance next day at dawn.  The moon was already set on the west of the skies but was still there clearly.  Her beaming light could not be missed!

I think I have missed photographing full moon number of times (months?) this year.  Sky condition was main reason of why, but I was not be able to make chances for doing it either (I would like to photograph just after the moon rise).

With the hope I will get some shots for 2 more full moons to come for 2018….

Views at Tumgun Lookout

I passed by local surfers at the walk path in Burleigh Head National Park, most of whom scurried the path reaching for the point beneath Tumgun Lookout.  They then rushed down the graveled slope to the seashore and puddled the board to catch the wave.

The below photo caught the shoreline looked down from Tumgun Lookout.  I enjoyed seeing various patterns appeared and swept by waves.  I also enjoyed seeing dotted local surfers on the water paddled and surfed.

If you move your eyes to the right, you will see the Gold Coast shoreline toward the end which is at Snapper Rocks.  Underneath the lookout is the entry point of Tallebudgera Creek, that was taken in deep emerald and blue and was not cold (yes, I touched the water before I came to this lookout).

It was a nice walk of total 2 hours.
