This shot was taken with a Nikon D700 in Greens Pool, Denmark, Western Australia, 2009.

Just one tree standing in the midst of the cleared slopes of a vineyard in Pemberton. Storm clouds gathering, this tree stands strong against all nature forces unwavered.

This couple of weeks may have more photos of this genre showing strength and integrity. One man particularly earned me the respect over the years is Mr Chiam See Tong. Just like this tree he stood unwavered against the stronghold of the MIW, always fighting for the rights of Singaporeans and standing up for us. This GE 2011 is not just about the MIWs but also about us the Singaporeans to take the extra step to make a difference with our vote by standing strong with our decision and look forward for the change. Thumbs up for Mr Chiam See Tong, whom despite with his current condition, still stands out and speaks up during the rallies.

This shot was taken with a Canon G10 in Lijiang, Yunnan, China, 2009.

Taken in Lijiang within a park in the premises of the elephant hills, this shot was taken with Canon G10 zoom at the maximum. Waters were extremely still, perfect reflections, beautiful colors of the surroundings. A touch of zen.

Taken in Lijiang from the top of elephant hills. Steep uphill climb, but to locals, it appears that it is a daily routine climb up every morning. Wishing for clear blue skies but gotten dreamy clouds with the backdrop of Yulong Snow Mountain. Home in the mountains.

This shot was taken with a Canon G10 in Tiger Leaping Gorge, Yunnan, China, 2009.

Taken at the Lower Tiger Leaping Gorge, this shot emphasizes the man against the forces of nature. How such sheer architecture is built against the strong currents, how long can the structure withstand the forces of nature? Question of time.

Taken at the Lower Tiger Leaping Gorge, this is just pure display of the strength of nature’s strong currents at its very best. Hearing and seeing is believing, witnessing this scene and hearing the thunderous roars of these currents makes me wonder what will happen if one falls over. Can’t imagine…

This was taken after we reached the lower portion of TLG (Tiger Leaping Gorge) in midst of rain and driver navigating through rough terrain with risk of landslides. Tina’s Guesthouse is one of the stops that most backpackers would camp by for the night after taking the high trek. Took the trek in 2007 and in 2009 we passed by this zone but never stayed. It’s amazing how the bridge linked across the ferocious gorge below and remained functional over the years in the midst of horrendous weather and climate. Set with the background of mountains and clouds, this is indeed a link to the heavens.

This was taken after we reached the lower portion of TLG (Tiger Leaping Gorge) in midst of rain and driver navigating through rough terrain with risk of landslides. The meandering rivers, and plateaus, complemented by the mountains in the background make just a picturesque landscape even with my G10.
