'Tis The Season To Be Jolly.....Tra La la

I felt like having fun right now, after all, this is the season to be jolly, tra lalala...lalala. Though this is not April Fool's Day, but I feel like having a confusing game. But maybe, what I have in mind is not really that confusing, after all, if you have followed my blog well enough, maybe, you will remember very well when these pictures were taken. But then, I am not up to date with my postings, so I know these can still be pretty confusing even if you may have followed this blog for some time already.
This would be like a matching type game, where you will match the 4 pictures with the 4 seasons, whether the picture was taken at spring, summer, winter, or fall.
Picture A - North Lake, Bishop Creek Canyon, California

lake was frozen, and the snow frosted rocky slopes of the Sierras were reflected on the clear ice of the lake
Picture B - Big Sur, California

waves were pounding the shore, the fogs were disappearing to greet a sunny sky!
Picture C - Lassen Volcanic National Park, California

where is the afternoon sun?
Picture D - Tooth Rock, Poway, San Diego County, CA

orange California poppies and blue canterbury bells blend well with the blue sky

How well do you think will you fare in this matching game? Are you very confident with your answers? Which picture do you think is the most revealing and why?

Anyway, I would want to greet you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, may you all have a blessed and joyful celebration with your family.

  1. Hi Betchai... tis really the season to be jolly... sad to say, i will fail in your game because i wasn't able to follow your blog on a regular basis... but one thing is sure, you never fail to amaze me with your snapshots

  2. More amazing pictures!!! Wish you a merry Xmas!!!

  3. Hi Betchai, I am a new follower of your blog, but one thing for sure, the last picture was taken in Spring. Your pictures show that you are a well traveled adventurer! they are just so amazing.

    P.S. Thank you for your well wishes and I hope to feel better these coming days and be in full time blogging. The 12/2 incident started it all. But on the positive side, I feel better.

    May you and your family enjoy the spirit of the Holiday Season.

  4. Betchai, I only started blogging in mid-September so I missed many of your posts. I am glad to see these amazing pictures and I am so delighted to become acquainted with your blog, partly because of my good friend, Joanne Olivieri ( Poetic Shutterbug ).

    Blessing to you at Christmas and always.

  5. I don't remember the order of the posts, but I remember each picture. I would guess, in order of the pictures, Fall, Summer, Winter, and Spring. I'm almost sure that's wrong, but that's what I feel from just looking at the pictures.

  6. Have a wonderful and merry merry Christmas!

  7. I have only one season to share with you, thus you are more lucky than me.

    No matter Fall, Summer, Winter, or Spring, they look great.

    But I do not the temperature of winter.

    Merry Christmas to you.

  8. Hmmm lemme guess - fall, spring, winter, summer? hehe Merry Christmas Betchai! My daughter is now chanting your post title, lol!

  9. Second guess - fall, summer, winter, spring. *wink*

  10. Hi Betchai, what a fun guessing game! I think the last one could be spring, but the others are too tricky for me. I hope you post the answers sometime. :)

  11. Oh betchai, this is more like a test, even though I have followed you from the beginning.

    I'm not confident with my answer, but here it is: winter, fall, spring and summer!

    Merry Christmas to you and Khai!

  12. Well I a am probably going to be wrong but I am going to say Spring, Fall, Winter, and Summer are the pictures. I hope you, and yours have a very Merry Christmas.

  13. I also will wish you a merry christmas, to your parents, friends an all people in your country!
    Have a nice day

  14. Wishing you and your family happy holidays! I also guess it is Fall, Summer, Winter, and Spring. Winter because of the snow, Spring because of the flowers, Summer because of the fog, and process of elimination for Fall. :)

  15. Happy Holidays!!! Love these beautiful pictures of amazing nature!!!!!!!

  16. hello there, you have a very nice blog, congratulations. and here I wish you a Merry Christmas and lovely life ahead to you and your family!
    love Naqvee

  17. Lovely pictures betchai :)
    Sorry that my mind is clouded with too much turkey, logcakes, panettone cakes and wines...

    Have a blessed Christmas for you and your family :)

  18. I remember all the pics but not sure what order.

    I will guess A = Autumn, B = Summer, C = Winter then D = Spring.

    This was done via process of elimination as I was pretty sure I had C and D correct.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  19. Goodness your pictures are so gorgeous. They are christmas gifts to my eyes. :p

  20. These are beautiful and wonderful photos. Sorry to miss the fun..

  21. A bit of a sad xmas for me being far from my family the first time and more knowing our little Elisse has been sick. But I know that shouldn't stop me from celebrating for this joly season.

    I missed your quiz... Bleated merry christmas!!!

  22. well, i am not going to guess. but all i can say is those pictures are just breath taking. how did you ever came to be such a great photographer? ;-)
