"Across the sky, the haze was twirling,

The moon, as though a pale dye,

Emerged with yellow through faint clouds.

And there I sat, immersed in doubts,

And now, just take a look outside.

The snow below the bluish skies,

Like a majestic carpet lies,

And in the light of day it shimmers.

The woods are dusky. Through the frost.

The greenish brown trees are exposed,

And under ice, a river glitters.

And there the tree in silence

Slumbers all day long

With branches of the purest snow.

The snow gleams brightly In the golden sun

For the First Snow of Winter has just begun."

Best wishes for a wonderful Christmas and a bright New Year, everyone! Thank you for all your sweet comments and support this year. I"ll be on and off until after Christmas, but will check in on you brilliant streams whenever I can. :)

Everytime I go out with my camera, I take some pictures that I like, but since they are not part of the main event i am shooting that day, I never upload them. I have now decided to upload them to flickr rather than let them get lost in one of my external hard drives. they are just random pictures i click. I will call them "Just Clicks". Hope you like some of them.

"There is no time more fitting to say Thank You and to wish you a Happy Holiday Season and a New Year of health, happiness and prosperity."

 

Have a safe and blessed Christmas, everyone!

 

My sincere thanks to all the birthday and anniversary wishes from yesterday. I appreciate each one of those wonderful wishes and made me happy. :heart_eyes:

A Merry Christmas and a Happy Flickr'ing New Year to you and your loved ones, dear friends. Cheers , stay safe and keep smiling.

 

Dear friends,

 

This is going to be my last post for this year. I'm off for now. I love (learning to love) the heat (in Malaysia) every time I walk outside. I've stopped complaining about the heat =). I sleep at about 9pm (local time- 2am NZ time equivalent) and wake up at about 4 am. You can laugh all you might =). Sometimes I can't sleep at all. This criterion qualifies me to apply for a position of a watchman ey? hahahahahaha. What a super duper long jet lag and it continues up till now.

 

Whatever it is, I do enjoy your companion in this flickr world. I hope our friendship will continue to thrive even though we are apart in distance. I hope that I’ve been a good pal (flickr friend) to you, as much as you are to me =). I've travelled all around the world through your lenses. I've experienced the world through your exceptional photos. I breathe in different countries every single time I venture into your streams. I've got the chance to know people across cultures, regions and professions. And for that, I thank you =)

 

Thank you for your kindness. Thank you for your love. Thank you for the time you gave to me. Thank you for the things you taught me. Thank you for your heart.

 

Together with this photo I attach to you photos of most views, most comments, most faves and most interesting in my stream. You can click on the "popular" button to view your own great collections =).

 

Many thanks dearie friends.

Sorry for any wrong doings

Take care alright =)

Hugsss

 

Love,

Nur Arifah Abd Majid, 23, still single...hahahahahaha, currently reading "The God of Small Things" by Arundhati Roy, Till then, bye!

 

p/s Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Salam Maal Hijrah in advance! Don't be surprised if I crash into your chimney to give out presents for Christmas....hohoho!

Dont miss me and keep on smiling alright =)

Mangroves are trees and shrubs that grow in saline coastal habitats in the tropics and subtropics. The saline conditions tolerated by various species range from brackish water, through pure seawater to water of over twice the salinity of ocean seawater, where the salt has become concentrated by evaporation.

 

There are many species of trees and shrubs adapted to saline conditions. Not all are closely related, and the term 'mangrove' may be used for all of them, or more narrowly only for the mangrove family of plants, the Rhizophoraceae, or even more specifically just for mangrove trees of the genus Rhizophora.

 

More than fifty species of Rhizophoraceae grow in Australasia, with particularly high biodiversity on the island of New Guinea and northern Australia.

 

Australia has approximately 11,500 km2 of mangroves primarily on the northern and eastern coasts of the continent, with occurrences as far south as Millers Landing in Wilsons Promontory, Victoria and Barker Inlet in Adelaide, South Australia.

"And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?"

 

Another year on Flickr, it goes so fast, and so to you, a really big thank you for all the support and encouragement, the comments, faves and testimonials. Thank you for all the visits and thank you also for sharing your work!

 

I wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

 

See you in 2013!

I just wanted to stop by and wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas. Karen and I are having a great time with our company, we've been to the Grand Canyon and Sedona. It was very cold but we bundled up with many layers of clothes and just enjoyed the beauty of the surrounding area.

 

I have turned off comments as I do not have time to comment on your photos. I will try and catch up with each of you next weekend after my company leaves. The photo in the first comment was taken in Sedona.

 

Merry Christmas and a

Healthy, Happy New Year.

I wanted to post the landscape version of this shot that highlights the curves of the "fire wave" itself. This is the image I ended up printing and hanging on my wall... Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and remember the reason for the season- Jesus! This giant "candy cane" is my Christmas gift to you all!

Merry christmas and happy new year! Let's hope the new year of 2012 will be favorable for photography and exploring of nature. Ofcourse couple of volcanoes and unexpected adventures would be great too ;-)

I was visiting my parents for christmas when the sky suddenly exploded in Northern Lights. On the evening of December 26th I was heading for the sofa with a christmas beer (Julefred by Kinn) when my mom came in the door and said, "have you seen that the sky is purple?".

I left the beer, got dressed for aurora hunting and grabbed the camera. It was a great show and the "northern-lights-panick" hit me, and I struggled to choose where to shoot or how to compose. I ended up with a few random shots in all directions, and this is one of them. Facing east, with the mountain Landegode and the city Bodø on the horizon. 100 meters from my parents house.

Merry christmas and a happy new year! :)

This is for you all..wish you Merry Christmas & Happy 2010

No photo can show the whole beauty and power of Niagara Falls. The mist always interferes. Getting a good perspective is a challenge too ...

 

My favourite Christmas song:

 

www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIqwxp5Jmck

 

"... and every dream that herein asleeps

has a child whose heart it keeps

and now, for someone else's sake

one by one those dreams awake"

I always loved this scene with its mysterious light, great sense of depth and beauty. I captured it on film on a mountain trip between Christmas and New Years Eve in 1997 (with the Nikon FE-2). I have already posted a BW version earlier and I think I like that version even better. But, I figured this color version could be a nice end of the year "post card" photo for 2010. The photo itself is not so spectacular but the scene is of course very special with the light breaking through the fog behind the snowed down trees.

 

It has been a very busy year for me and I have not posted many photos on Flickr. I hope to improve this in 2011. Most of my time at Flick I devote as one of the admins of the group PPro - thoughtful meeting place to share images, get honest critique, and build a knowledge. Another reason for the lack of photos in 2010 has also been that my key projects in 2010 have been of a very personal nature. I have turned to photographing people (trying to lift the family photo to a higher level). It has been a very rewarding experience and I have been shooting most of my stuff with the 50mm f/1.4 and the 35mm f/1.8. Lately I have been enjoying the superb ISO performance of the new D7000 body and shooting people and places in very low light conditions. I have also been working on and completed two family book projects.

 

I thank you all for your interest in my photography. In spite of my 2010 absence as an active Flickr poster and commenter I hope we can stay in touch also in 2011. I wish you all happy holidays, Merry Christmas and a really happy New Year!

 

Comments without banners/photos are very much welcome.
