It’s Friday! The happy weekends are waiting for you. After five day’s hard work, it’s time for you to consider how to relax yourself.
Sometimes, you need to step outside, get some air, and remind yourself of who you are and who you want to be. Recently, I’ve been quite busy. A lot of things are waiting for me to deal with. When I am under pressure, I choose to have a short trip to relax myself. So I invite some friends and drove the car to fishing near the city.
Jinding Lake is our destination. The truth is, it is not a lake but a reservoir. As it is quite large, the local people call this reservoir the “lake”.
Many city men, like me and my friends, drove cars to the Jinding Lake for fishing. It doesn’t matter whether you can catch the fish or not. This is an opportunity for busy city people to slow down the path of their life.
Because it is Friday, there are less people than the weekends. But lucky me! I don’t like the big crowd of people. I am here for the scenery not for people.
I spent the whole afternoon at the Jinding Lake. It was already 6 p.m. when I realized. The sun was still bright. So I took out my camera and record down the fabulous sunset.
Slowly, the nightfall is approaching. The sky became red and orange. The lake was painted on orange color by the sunset. The surface of the lake was so sparking that I can barely open my eyes.
Samuel Johnson, the British writer, once said: “Hope itself is a species of happiness which this world affords.” That is very correct.
In this cozy night, I am walking along the Sand River. It is a infamous place which few people visit here. To me and the river, this is a good thing.
Watching the peaceful river and the amazing sunset, I can’t help thinking the meaning of our life. There is a kind of missing which can be called a light happiness. There is a kind of happiness which is the frequent concern. There is a kind of concern which is the distant appreciation.
“All men whilst they are awake are in one common world; but each of them, when he is asleep, is in a world of his own.” Plutarch
I took many pictures of the sunrise of Great Walls. However, I hadn’t done the sunset yet. Therefore, in this warm and breeze spring afternoon, I came here to record the thrilling beauty of Great Walls in sun set.
The flowers of peach trees on the mountain are in full blossom. The blossom flowers suggest us that we are already in the deep spring.
When the nightfall was approaching, the temperature dropped. And the wind on the mountain top became a little bit cold. I was breathtaking when I saw the first light of sunset spilt on the walls. It is so amazing!
