Oasis in the Desert | Huacachina | Nature | Landscape | Sunset Photography | Jonace World Travels

Instead of going to the super touristy place of Machu Picchu, we choose to go to Huacachina.

Huacachina is a desert oasis and tiny village just west of the city of Ica in southwestern Peru. At its center are the green waters of the Huacachina Lagoon, ringed by palm trees and thought to have therapeutic properties.

I was amazed at finding this very special place. The oasis is real, you see such mirages in cartoons.

Did you know the small lake is natural? the trees around the lake draws water from the air and store it in the ground which created the lake.

It was a rather painful climb cos of the Fibromyalgia but this photo makes it all so worth it.

All my photography can be bought as prints, just contact me to discuss your options.

Enjoy,

Snowdon Valley Sunset, Wales, UK | Nature | Sunset Photography | Jonace World Travels

This is the view I got after climbing down Snowdon Mountain. It was supposed to be a simple hike, which ended up being 8 hours with scrabbles!

Snowdon (Welsh: Yr Wyddfa, pronounced [ər ˈwɪðva]) is the highest mountain in Wales, at an elevation of 1,085 meters (3,560 ft) above sea level, and the highest point in the British Isles outside the Scottish Highlands. It is located in Snowdonia National Park (Parc Cenedlaethol Eryri) in Gwynedd. It is the busiest mountain in the United Kingdom and the third most visited attraction in Wales, with 582,000 people visiting annually.[3] It is designated as a national nature reserve for its rare flora and fauna.

It was my 1st ever hike on a mountain in my life. It was like a near death experience from the searing pain in my back and also climbing up very steep parts.

Even the 2 friends I was with who were experienced hikers found it difficult! Glad that I survived it with God’s help though:D I kept speaking out loud ” I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” with each step I took.

This is the view when I was done with the hike, it was so beautiful and a good reminder that with God all things are possible!

Super Blue Blood Moon Sunset | Nature | Sunset Photography | Astrophotography | Jonace Aussie Travels

Here is my photo of the Super Blue Blood Moon Sunset; NASA is calling it a lunar trifecta: the first super blue blood moon since 1982. That combination won’t happen again until 2037.

I was so blessed to be able to partake in this beautiful event with close friends.

Instead of just photographing the moon, Here is the Super Blue Blood Moon Sunset above Perth city with yachts sailing around at sunset! That is what I find exciting!

The moon and our beautiful colourful sunset and in this instance, the city of Perth in the backdrop! That to me is the tri-factor with the yachts on the water as a bonus element!

I intentionally kept the photo dark so that you can see the details on the moon better. Part of me is disappointed that the moon was not blue in colour since blue is my favourite colour!

As the moon rises, I was finding it harder to have the moon and the city in the same frame. We stayed till about 11:45 pm and got lots of photos of the lunar eclipse.

I also did a night panorama of the scene with the moon but the moon was tiny and was very bright so as to capture the surrounding nightscape.

I’ll post that tomorrow!

If you like this photo, contact me to purchase a print.

Enjoy,
Grace-yi
