This shot was taken with a Nikon D700 en route to Albany via Albany Highway near Stirling Ranges in Western Australia, 2009.

Recommended by my cousin for the great seafood here, we paid a visit to Emu Point for a nice simple seafood fare at Squid Shack. Before that, I can’t miss taking the colors that are falling upon the jetty with the sun setting behind. Taken at the blue hour with sunset colors, this long exposure was extremely tough with my lightweight tripod in the strong winds and cold temperatures. Nevertheless, got one shot and this is it.

Summer was scorching hot in the outback but skies were amazingly clear and “blessed” with swarm of houseflies. Every shot in the wild have to be taken fast, else u will simply be swarmed by the fly army. This shot simply shows how wild and vast the outback is with just a lone tree in the plains.

Shot taken from above the skies of Western Australia during dawn, before sunrise. The silhouette breaks the black shadows and creates a depth for this shot.

This shot was taken with a Canon G10 in Lijiang, Yunnan, China, 2009.

Taken in Lijiang from the top of elephant hills. Steep uphill climb, but to locals, it appears that it is a daily routine climb up every morning. Wishing for clear blue skies but gotten dreamy clouds with the backdrop of Yulong Snow Mountain. Home in the mountains.

This shot was taken with a Canon G10 in Tiger Leaping Gorge, Yunnan, China, 2009.

Taken at the Lower Tiger Leaping Gorge, this shot emphasizes the man against the forces of nature. How such sheer architecture is built against the strong currents, how long can the structure withstand the forces of nature? Question of time.

Taken at the Lower Tiger Leaping Gorge, this is just pure display of the strength of nature’s strong currents at its very best. Hearing and seeing is believing, witnessing this scene and hearing the thunderous roars of these currents makes me wonder what will happen if one falls over. Can’t imagine…

This was taken after we reached the lower portion of TLG (Tiger Leaping Gorge) in midst of rain and driver navigating through rough terrain with risk of landslides. Tina’s Guesthouse is one of the stops that most backpackers would camp by for the night after taking the high trek. Took the trek in 2007 and in 2009 we passed by this zone but never stayed. It’s amazing how the bridge linked across the ferocious gorge below and remained functional over the years in the midst of horrendous weather and climate. Set with the background of mountains and clouds, this is indeed a link to the heavens.
