Sea of Clouds

I was astonished when a couple approached me for where they can witness the sea of clouds a few weeks ago. Yes, sea of clouds at Cerok Tokun.

(卓坤山上的云海)

Not many hikers have stopped for this scenic view, as I observed, because it is hidden behind bushes and trees. Moreover, clouds will only gather together and form a sea of clouds after continuous heavy rains. I wonder from where they came across this unknown side of Cerok Tokun. Unfortunately they had to come back again, and not to forget to carry some lucks along.

Not to mention places off the main track, there is only one vantage point where I can enjoy this amazing creation, and it is about four hundred meters towards the top of Cerok Tokun. I always climb up the side rail and skillfully enough to balance myself for an unblocked view and descent pictures.

This scenic view appears more attractive in a picture than in our bare eyes. Our eyes have always confused us by taking in too much information, ending up everything looks nothing more than ordinary.

I have a few posts talking about this beautiful scene. Having another or few more will never be excessive. I am always tempted but refuse to resist each and every time. It is thrilling to be in love with her, a charming lady, and in fact, I have been in love with her for a such a long time.

I have to say that your images are getting more and more captivating with every post you write. It must be due to you walking in the clouds.

It is an amazing view. I like you title "Sea of Clouds", very fitting.

jeannette said...

Incredible views, Rainfield! Very similar feeling to when you sit in an airplane and come at the level of the clouds! Be careful with your "balancing" act!

Glennis said...

Your sea of clouds really does look remarkable in the pictures, even if you think it doesn't as much when you look at it with your own eyes. Maybe the people that approached you understood that you were a great traveler and adventurer as soon as they saw you.

I translated it literally from Chinese words as what are appearing in the post: 云海.

I need to balance myself between excitement and calmness at that moment. I needed to travel quite a distance to the foot of the hill.

Yes. Thanks for your reminder.

A path well tread as it appears so inviting! Wow, the Sea of clouds are really enchanting- another side to this mysterious Cerok Tokun! I think you have a point, how can we absorb it all? We must come back.. but after all, we take pictures so they'll last longer-
