How much do you love nature?

    Nature tripping is one of my favorite hobbies.  My very own way of 'chillaxing', meditation and appreciating the most wonderful work of art.  God gave us eyes to see beauty.  He gave us the heart and mind to be able to connect emotionally and intellectually to what we see. When I see nature, words are not enough to really explain the feelings within me. The feelings of gratitude for life... the feelings of amazement to the awesome Creator of such beauty... the mixed emotions are wanting to burst out of my lips but can't say anything at all. I can actually stay for hours and hours with nature without getting bored.

    When my family and I lived in Scotland, I felt so close to nature. Scotland has got every nature you could get.
    There were places I visited with my husband and loved every moment with mother nature.  Do you also feel astonished with such lovely sceneries? I would like to share my photos with the marvelous exquisiteness of Scotland. Hope you like them too!

    Thanks for viewing everyone.  You can also share your close encounter with nature and feel free to express yourself.

My Very Own 'Amateur Photography'

    I love taking pictures of the nature, my pets and some of my flowers in my terrace garden. That's when I feel bored but too lazy to get out of the house. I would just go out the terrace and enjoy taking pictures of anything.
Just sharing my humble work of art... my so called amateur photography. I also included some of my pets' photos. Happy viewing!

Took a lovely shot of the sunset one lazy afternoon

Farmville at the back terrace... =)

Getting dark already

Lonely red hibiscus

Really nice!

Simply beautiful

Ants lurking at the petals

Hibiscus laciocarpos also known as rose mallow

Malvarosa - a mosquito repellent 

What kind of insect is this?

Caterpillar under the leaf

Fragrant orchids

The flower that turns white at dusk then starts the sweet smell.
