What a lovely place to unwind. The chalet we booked is situated right by the river, and the sound of flowing river has a way of calming the soul, and lifting ones spirits.
Some shots below. It was oh sooo nice to be among nature and to be able to "capture" some bugs again on my camera. I'd missed nature photography so much. Some shots below.
|Since the chalet was pretty small (it has just one room), some of us had to camp. It was nice camping in cool weather beside the gurgling stream.|
|Some of the children at play. They spent almost every waking hour at the river.|
|Early Morn by our campsite.|
|Beautiful colours, a feast for the soul.|
|I spent lots of time sitting here, reflecting and at the same time watching damselflies and dragonflies. After sitting still for a while, some damselflies actually began landing on my hands.Cool. :)|
|There's an amazing variety of dragonflies and damselflies here, mainly the colours of blue, purple, orange, red and green. That's almost every colour isn't it. That's what I love about nature...colours.|
|I particularly love this greenish one. Oh so beautiful and intriguing.|
|Was so hard to capture it with its wings opened. After several failed attempts, walla, one achievement.|
|Attempt at capturing one in midair. Not so clear, but I know practice makes perfect. Will keep practicing.|
|Finally, the greatest "catch" of the weekend was this furry caterpillar. After some research, I believe that this is a Tussock Moth Caterpillar. It walks rather fast and doesn't seem to be very scared of humans.|
