Glasses not seeing things wife's way


Wife to optometrist:
"I'm returning these glasses I bought for my husband. He's still not seeing things my way."

The husband needs rose-tinted glasses  :-)

Beautiful Walpa Gorge, Kata Tjuta, NT, Australia


Walpa Gorge is a gorge between two of the highest domes in Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), Northern Territory, Australia.

Here is a rare, but most stunning scenery of water pouring down the cliff faces of the gorge:
The photograph was taken in 2013-05 in pouring rain. The rain ruined my camera ... but to be able to witness such a scene is well worth it.

Photograph courtesy of Ricky who was mad enough to be with me in that trip.

As of today, I can't find any picture posted by others on the internet of the gorge in the rain.

By contrast, here is a photograph of the same gorge taken by me 14 months later in 2014-07 in a sunny afternoon. Still a sight to behold, but I prefer the beauty of the previous pic.
( More photos and trip report on Walpa Gorge are in my blog:

My abode in the woods


Some people want a big house, a fast car, and lots of money.
Others just want a tiny cabin in the woods away from those kinds of people.

Caterpillar tree ferns - Dicksonia antarctica


The 2 photographs here are Soft Tree Ferns, Dicksonia antarctica. They have fallen or bent into an arch. On reaching the ground, the stems turn vertical and continue to grow and hence having the appearance of giant caterpillars crawling on the forest floor.
Although Dicksonia antarctica is a common species in Australia, seeing them in a caterpillar state is quite rare.

But in Dicksonia Forest Ravine, there is a forest of Dicksonia antarcticas, and many of them are in this caterpillar state. More photosgraphs of these caterpillars, and a trip report to the ravine are in my blog:

By the way, the ravine is like an enchanted world, like a mythical fairy land. You should visit it if you have a chance.

(Dicksonia Forest Ravine is in the north-western corner of Blue Mountains National Park, NSW, Australia. Click on the above blog link for the precise location.)

How to count 97 in French


I was interested in learning French after seeing this joke:

3 dogs are competing in a swimming race. There is an English dog named "one two three"; a German dog named "eins zwei drei"; and a French dog named "un deux trois". The dogs all swim across a lake. The English dog finishes first. The German dog finishes second. But the French dog is nowhere to be found.

Why?

Because un deux trois quartre cinq.

But it wasn't a joke when I learned that to count to 97, you say 4 * 20 + 10 + 7. I had a 6ure and 5 to my knees and pray God to 7 the French language on fire ... I had e9.

Fire Rainboow in Singapore


A fire rainbow is a rare phenomenon ... formed when sunlight refracts through ice-crystal clouds.

Here are the photos of a fire rainbow over Singapore in 2017-02-20, around 5:10pm-ish and lasted about 15 minutes. Wish I was there to witness it !
