Images of the Grassland at Yangchenghu Peninsula 阳澄湖半岛冬游

Yangcheng Lake, located at the northwest of Suzhou City, is well-known for its crab which has the fame as “The king of the carbs”. I wento to Yangchenghu Peninsula yesterday. It looks like a piece of shiny jade in the sun. And surprisingly, it has a wide grassland for fun. We enjoyed the natural scenery and participate in some sports there.

Hi Steemit Friends, this is my entry for ColorChallenge initiated by @kalemandra. The color for Saturday is Indigo. Here’s the detail for ColorChallenge. I like to share my life experience through different pictures.

大家好,这是我参加色彩挑战的帖子,今天的颜色主题是#SaturdayIndigo 靛青色。应该是气温骤降的原因,我得了重感冒,一直在咳嗽,咳得我若隐若现的头痛,除了忙忙碌碌的工作,什么都不想做。

I am getting over a terrible cold and now trying to recover myself. I totally understand if my lack of enthusiasm on posting or overall communication has driven you away. But hey, everyone has the moment when they don’t want to write down anything.

这张照片拍摄于苏州阳澄湖,阳澄湖大闸蟹是闻名海内外,不过这个季节没有大闸蟹,可以到阳澄湖大草坪露营。不过风超级大,除了能放风筝,估计人都能刮上天。

Images of Flowers in Bloom at Shangfangshan National Forest Park 山花烂漫,春天有约

此间盛景不须歌,自有樱花八面多。
哪怕一朝随雨尽,无欢无戚踏青莎。

After a heavy rain last week, the weather is getting colder. Now it is reported that there would be a snow here in Suzhou. These photos are taken at Shangfangshan National Forest Park. It is holding a “flower festival” and the entire place is covered with cherry blossom trees and tulips in every color imaginable. I walked with Ethan in the forest park, and took the pictures below. Everything seems to be prettier and everyone seems to be a little happier in the flower bloom.

Theme|主题: Flowers | 花

漫步在上方山国家森林公园,感受“山花烂漫,春天有约”。这是我去年春天在上方山拍的郁金香跟樱花,很是浪漫写意。这一系列,用来提交 @jamtaylor 组织的摄影比赛#steemitphotochallenge,想参加的可以点击这里

Images of Metallic Chain Partly Covered by Green Moss 寂静生长的美丽: 苔藓 | MundaneArt

Hi Steemians,

This is my entry for 📷 #MundaneArt Photo Challenge organised by @kus-knee. For those who are interested in it, please read the details here.

Theme|主题: Moss and Lichen | 苔藓和地衣

moss.jpg

山不在高,有仙则名。水不在深,有龙则灵。斯是陋室,惟吾德馨。苔痕上阶绿,草色入帘青。谈笑有鸿儒,往来无白丁。可以调素琴,阅金经。无丝竹之乱耳,无案牍之劳形。南阳诸葛庐,西蜀子云亭。孔子云:何陋之有?

在《陋室铭》中,刘禹锡诉说自己屋子上布满苔藓,却怡然自得的心境。古人经常借住苔藓卑微而顽强的生命,象征自己的满腹才华,却郁郁不得志,虚负凌云万丈才,一生襟抱未曾开。而在现代,苔藓植物似乎成为了艺术美的主角。

Images of Changzhou Tianning Temple 千年古刹 | ColorChallenge

真正的平静,不是避开车马喧嚣,而是在心中修篱种菊。
尽管如流往事,每一天都涛声依旧,只要我们消除执念,便可寂静安然。
愿每个人,在纷呈世相中不会迷失荒径,可以端坐磐石上,醉倒落花前。

Remembering my last visit to Changzhou Tianning Temple this summer in #fridayblue on #colorchallenge contest.

This sky blue temple picture is taken with my Nikon D7000 camera. I found peace when standing at the foot of the temple especially that day the whether is quite good. After I took this picture, an old man said to me that it is not polite to take the pictures of the temple and Buddha. Something bad will happen when people are taking photos with the Buddha. I am scared by his words. I just enjoy taking pictures as my hobby. The whole temple looks amazing under the azure sky. So I took out my camera and captured the moment. Then I never show this picture to others.

Images of Nantong Wolf Mountain 心诚则灵 | ColorChallenge

世界上大概只有华人是以红为囍。
红代表美满,代表温暖,代表春。
中国人的世界里,所有美好的事情都会掠过一抹红。红唇、红烛、红盖头,当然还有红包,都是祝福和对美满的期待。

Remembering my last visit to Nantong Wolf Mountain this summer in #mondayred on #colorchallenge contest. The Wolf Mountain is in south area of Nantong, where I was born and raised. I really admire the historic temples at the top of the mountain. And it is one of the famous eight little Buddhist Mountains.

这个系列拍摄于南通狼山,八小佛山之首。南通是我的故乡,一个有着丰厚文化气息的城市。

red.jpg

I captured an old man climbing to the top on steep stairs holding a red plastic bag with a walking stick. That is why I named the series as “Sincerity can work Wonders”. Many young people including me choose a cable car ride, rather than hiking to the top. But this old man is trying hard to climb the stairs with his walking stick. In the red plastic bag, there are joss sticks and candles. He may be climb to the temple of the top to pray for his son or wife. It means best wishes to his family and friends.

我最喜欢的是这张照片,这位老爷爷左手拄着拐杖,右手拎着红色的马夹袋,步履蹒跚的准备登顶狼山,手上的袋子里装着香烛,应该是要到到山顶的寺庙里为他的妻儿朋友敬香祈福。很多年轻人,像我这类,都倾向于走缆车直接登顶,也不会自备香烛,所以我给这组照片命名为“心诚则灵”。

悠闲假期:烟雨漓江,绝美山水生活画卷 Travel with me: East or west, Guilin landscape is best.

桂林风景甲天下,如诗中画画中诗;
山中樵夫唱,江上客船归。奇!

guilin1.jpg

“East or west, Guilin landscape is best”. I have learned this sentence when I was a primary school student. I planed to visit Chongqing or Sichuan, but I didn’t get the tickets there. And when I search for the tickets, I found the flight to Guilin is really cheap. Then I changed my idea, and went there with my mum to spend my holiday. I have stayed in Gulin for 5 days, and went to Beihai City to continue my holiday.

小学的时候学的课文有介绍桂林山水甲天下,长大这么些年一直都有去桂林旅游的想法,却没有合适的时机,这次原本是打算去四川重庆,不凑巧机票没有买到,恰好桂林的机票特价,就跟我家女王大人同行,从浦东机场飞往桂林,再坐机场大巴到桂林市区入住酒店。到达酒店后上网搜了搜附近的景点,第二天玩了象鼻山,然而天气陡然降温,去商场买长袖衣服,然后夜游两江四湖,第三天去了超美超美的龙脊梯田,第四天乘竹筏漓江,漂去了阳朔,骑行十里画廊,狂风暴雨的夜晚赏印象刘三姐,然后辗转南宁,去了海滨城市北海

中间出了一个小插曲,就是我买的浦东机场的机票,然后我带着我家女王大人理所当然的去了虹桥机场候机,距离飞机离起飞时间还有两小时,打了一个飞的赶过去的终于在起飞前半小时赶上了安检。

象鼻山

名气挺大的,但是我觉得就是个小公园,挺适合情侣去玩的。

guilin2.jpg

在桂林到处转悠的时候,遇到一个司机,一路跟着我们,我们明确表示了不用坐他的车,他依旧很热心的给我们介绍桂林景点,告诉我们哪里有桂林小吃米粉,哇,那酸笋的味道真是终身难忘。第一天吃的酸笋田螺,我勉强把田螺吃掉了,第二天吃的米粉,那酸笋问起来虽然臭臭的,味道确实不错,怀着吃货一颗包容的心很开心的吃掉了,但是我刚刚走出店家五十米,居然吐得精光,幸好没有被老板看到。

IMG_20170220_212109.jpg

(一品鱼家味馆,酒店前台推荐的,真心不错)
IMG_20170220_211822.jpg

(传说中的酸笋田螺,我一开始以为是田螺臭了,准备找服务员换菜,我家女王大人吃了一口酸笋,说是酸笋自带的味道,我不相信的吃了一口,真心终身难忘,呸呸呸,为什么桂林人喜欢吃这种味道啊啊啊)
IMG_20170221_132230.jpg

(在司机的协助下找到的螺蛳粉店,我理智的跟店家强调了千万别放酸笋,果然成了我在桂林吃过的最好吃的米粉店)
夜游两江四湖

liangjiangsihu1.jpg
那风是嗖嗖的刮啊,站在船头看夜景,冻得我买了一条丝巾,把自己裹成了阿拉伯妇女,只剩两只眼睛。具体的 @herlife 投稿过 @someone 的帖子中有好多美照。

;iangjiangsihu2.jpg

日月双塔又称金银双塔,是夜游两江四湖的一个绝美夜景观赏地。

龙脊梯田

tianti2.jpg

坐车大概两个多小时行程,到达龙脊梯田,恍若看到了天梯。

看到当地的村民养猪养在半山腰上,用柴火大锅烧猪食,溪水流进农舍的石头器皿,一派田园风光。

催烟袅袅,绝美山水生活画卷。

烟雨漓江

IMG_20170223_093711.jpg

漓江的水是那样的美,仿佛置身于山水画中。山因水而青翠,水因山而秀美。江面上还有阵阵凉风吹过,前一天去龙脊梯田天气超级好,无奈去漓江的时候淅沥沥的小雨,那气温,冻得我把所有能穿的衣服不管长短都穿在了身上。

斗志昂扬贝宝人,撸起袖子加油干

在贝宝的第二个月,Boss为了庆祝三月份业绩突破月度新高,组织大家来了一场说走就走的旅行。于是我拖家带口的报名了,怎么辜负如此大好春光?公司80%都是妹子,当然是有好多美女照片啦,想欣赏妹纸照片敬请期待下一期,容我几天时间修片,这一期主打风景篇。

那边有一片美丽的桃花树林,也就是最近的热播剧中的三生三世十里桃林,出发前众妹纸都跃跃欲试要去偶遇折颜上神。一棵棵桃树桃树应经长得很高大,可以已经过了花期,大部分桃花度已经走向衰败了,枝头已经不复一片繁花似锦的壮烈,有些小桃子已经冒出枝头来,很艰难才能拍到五个花瓣都完好的桃花,唯有漫山遍野的油菜花,开的如火如荼。

跟Ethan漫步在一片花海中,各种角度拍照片,讲真, 怎么拍都是美的。满山姹紫嫣红,花团锦簇,美不胜收。

本来以为要下雨,到了湖州,几乎已经是初夏,稍微一动就满身的汗,失策只带了雨伞,我最应该带的是遮阳帽。

城山沟

这张是我的最爱,缩小之后似乎少了很多神韵,如美人手托着尖尖角的亭子,有一种旖旎之美。

右下角那是半个我,某猪拍风景照,一不小心,我入镜的原因吧。 Continue Reading

一路向南(3):大阳山植物园

原本是打算是去大阳山文殊寺,无奈风大雨急大车多,辨不清方向,开车到大阳山停车场的时候,发现到了植物园大门口,将错就错就带着Ivan进去转转。苏州的六月天就跟女人的心思一样捉摸不透,狂风暴雨一眨眼结束了,阳光又重新回到了大阳山,除了地上的水渍什么也没有留下。Ivan依然是没心没肺的撒腿就跑,一如既往的对大自然生意盎然不感兴趣,我则百无聊赖的一直追着他,怕他磕着碰着。小家伙看我追不上,就放慢速度等我,一靠近他又开始加速。

顺着平坦的马路往里走,植物园路边有金黄的麦穗在风中摇曳,我惊奇地指给Ivan看,哼着风吹麦浪,有种空山新雨后,天气晚来秋的feel。

大阳山

整个植物园景区占地约111公顷,映莲湖是植物园外围,属于免费开放的区域。Ethan说他理想中的生活应该住在这里,没有都市的繁华,但是有山有水有人家。

大阳山民宿

穿过映莲湖,植物园检票口对面是林泉里,是民宿,可以住宿吃饭。林泉里往北是大阳山山脚,有一片片开阔的绿地,适合三五好友支起帐篷,在大阳山南麓享受着大自然的美景。我随车带着野餐垫,不过刚刚下过雨,地面太湿,没派上用场。 Continue Reading

一路向南(2):沙家浜

南通往南驱车在高速公路上,一个个沙家浜的广告牌在眼前飞闪而过,于是乎,果断在携程上定好房间,晚上入住常熟,准备第二天早上去沙家浜芦苇荡。小时候在外婆家过暑假,总是听到京剧的《沙家浜》,不过我基本上没有多大印象,Ethan最喜欢侃侃而谈,提前跟我普及了阿庆嫂智斗刁德一,老百姓跟新四军的军民鱼水情。

本以为常熟反正也不大,就算房间定在市区,距离沙家浜不外乎十公里上下,匆忙中到了常熟市区后才发现距离沙家浜还有20多公里,各位去的话,最好宾馆定到沙家浜。那边有阳澄湖大酒店就在景区的出口处。不过住在市区的好处也是大大的,吃的特别多,我们俩特地去尝试了虞城百姓最爱的十碗面,大排面好吃到流泪。

沙家浜

沙家浜南临阳澄湖,北临昆承湖,去了才知道沙家浜湿地公园原来就是上千亩芦苇荡。我们在芦苇荡迷宫里面彻彻底底的迷路了,七拐八拐,发现脚下的土地半小时前我们才从另一个方向来过,最后Ethan趴在地图前面分辨了五分钟才找到了出口的方位。

沙家浜
进入大门,左手边有爱国主义教育基地,是免费的。像我这种刚刚陪选党代表的优秀党员,爱国主义觉悟自然是高高的,没有进去,径直奔向了芦苇荡。一进门就是大片的水面,上面飘着一望无际的荷叶。 Continue Reading

不成瘦子则成仁

春天,是一个万物生长的季节,一不留神,我今年又又又胖了五斤,一眨眼,藏不住的肉夏天就这么来了,那些疯长的肉肉就无所遁形了。

犹记得在本宫当年读书的年代,吃起东西来那叫一个无肉不欢,依旧是瘦的弱不禁风。今非昔比,终究是到了喝水也长胖的年纪,面对日益飙升的体重,无语问苍天。二十五岁过后,一直没有奔三的自觉,一直觉得自己约等于二十五岁,昨天准备买倩碧三部曲的时候,发现这已不适合自己,原来咱已经在奔三的路上一步一个脚印。这样的迷之思想也体现在了对自己体重的误解上,总是觉得自己也就一百斤多一点点,再加上各类亲戚还一直说我瘦了,我就这么在糖衣炮弹中腐朽了,终于酿成了今时今日的杯具。前两天找出去年夏天的一条裙子,勉强穿上了,但是本来的膝盖以上的长度俨然成了超短裙;在试了试之前买的牛仔短裙,A字裙穿身上已经成了一步裙的效果,仰头长啸,遍寻不着,犹叹当年小蛮腰。空余恨,一身五花膘。 Continue Reading
