Which Way?

I have come across the intense blue of the Greek sky from my many readings. When I discovered my very blue sky at Cerok Tokun, I could not stop from asking: is mine as blue as that Greek sky?

In fact, I was experimenting again. Trial and error is my other teacher, besides learning in the blogosphere.

I got the next one just because I have forgotten to change the setting of my camera. Since inventions usually happen unintentionally, this unplanned shot turned out to be my favourite.

It had a different look after I decided to turn on the flash. It is sometimes better to have a dim view, the mysterious feeling will at least keep my imagination glowing.

Going through adventures like Indiana Jones's needed him to keep exploring new places, otherwise Indiana Jones is no more Indiana Jones. Indiana Jones did not go back to the same place, because this was at the discretion of the director. I am myself the director.

I went back to the same place again to experiment my new experience. I have lost the intense blue sky, but met my new friend enjoying the winding game.

Yes, every creature enjoys in each different way, my way, his way or her way, but certainly not a no- way.

first i have to agree...behind the shadows of a dim light lurks a mystique that overworks one's imagination...

and yes about the unplanned shot...most of them turns out the best you ever did! and about which way...i'll go where the sun rises and where the brooks flows. so, i can see where the path leads me and i can find my way home.... doesn't make sense but i like the sounds of it...ha!ha!ha!

Wow.. That Water Dam looks like ancient kingdom fortress. I wish you can show us more of that rainfield. Beautiful!

I like the results of your experimentation (or forgetfulness). I think the photo without the flash is much more interesting. Please experiment some more and share the results with us.

Sharodindu said...

Good learning...and the best part is that you are sharing your learning with us :)

Like all the pics very much...great job!

When things are very obscure... it allows imagination to run, meander and find some meanings. ~bangchik

I can see different visions and stories through each photo. They share similar yet surreal highlights. Trial and error is my teacher as well :D Love this post Rainfield.

Salitype: This is the reason I go hiking in the morning. I'll go where the sun rises so I can see where the path leads me and i can find my way home

VanillaSeven: Oh really? Then I'll come back again.

George: Feel so good to have you loving my forgetfulness.

Sharodindu: This is the beauty of blogosphere. There is no limit in the learning.

Bangchik and Kakdah: When see thing very clearly, we start to pick the fault(s).

Poetic Shutterbug: I share the same with you. We walk through the journey at different time, and we gain different experience.

Going back to a place can always reveal something new and exciting. Your dam is one of those exciting places. Maybe Indy wishes he could go back too.

Tes said...

What a lovely sky -so blue! Yeah revisiting some places can teach us something new. I learn through trial and error too.

Kirigalpoththa said...

That unplanned shot is my favourite too!

maricar said...

i read somewhere... "honour your mistakes, they are your teaher, learn from them"...

beautiful "mistaken" shots rainfield... same here friend i'm still learning...

have a nice weekend my friend.

Life Ramblings said...

i believe in learning through trial and error too as well as a little patience which could produce the results i wanted.

happy weekend.

Icy BC said...

Very beautiful shots! Each one is different and unique..I spend less time outside now since it's so cold here already!

Bengbeng said...

it is good to learn new stuff. i am learning new photography technics too. makes blogging so much more fun

rainfield61 said...

Ratty: I shall call Indy to go back, better not to wait for the director.

Tes: You will derive more fun from your hiking experience. Waiting for you to share them.

cherie: You are so kind. Take care.

Kirigalpoththa: You know, I do not always get what I have expected.

maricar: I always tell my engineers not to be afraid of mistakes, but to learn from them. This is a universal law.

Life Ramblings: I have not seen the weekend yet. Sigh... It is my work day. BTW, happy weekend and happy mid autumn festival to you. Have a bright and big moon with you.

Icy BC: I have come to almost one year in blogging. I am going to see winter in another cycle again from all your blogs.

Bengbeng: we all learned from each other, that inspires.

Nothing wrong with going back to the same place to get a different view every time. Digital cameras are made for trial & errors.

Mei Teng said...

The sky is blue indeed! Sometimes, we get really blue skies here too but then it would be really, really hot.

I love the colour of the skies in Australia. So blue :)

betchai said...

we can never tell what treasure we can find in our journey. i have to agree with VS, the water dam looks like an ancient kingdom fortress. wonderful pictures and experience again.

Ayie said...

the sky's very blue and that dam looks ancient

same here i like the mysterious side of dim shots too
