Along the Qing Jiang River in Yidu, Hubei Province China, fishermen raise fish in these aqua farms. This photo was taken on a ferry rise from the mainland to a small island.

Hana, Maui--Taken around 6:30 PM, the morning sun waits for no one. I was having trouble getting a good exposure with the morning sun rising over the ocean. I might have benefitted using a neutral density filter, essentially sunglasses for a camera lens. 

Then I noticed how beautiful the sky was reflecting in this puddle.

Facing the Andaman on the western coast of Thailand is the sleepy island of Koh Phayam. Squid and Barracuda are favorite treats in these waters. Over the 9 days I was here, no two sunsets were the same.

Moonrise, Shen Nong Jia
Moonrise, Shen Nong Jia

Hubei Province, China--Blue skies in China are never taken for granted. Especial in January when coal choking air means that Lunar New Year fireworks have no noticeable effect on the air. At the end of the day, in the mountains of Shen Nong Jia, the beautiful moonrise made the whole trip worthwile.

On the way to shennongjia, the mountain road is beautiful and demands respect as it gets icier and slipper with few guard rails the higher we climb. 

Farm houses like this in the remote mountain seem peaceful and perfectly serene for winter hibernation from the rest of the world.

But I am sure on closer inspection, the romance of remote mountain living gives way to some bitter realities.

The gray sky casts a dream-like quality over the water as the mountains reflect into the river. The red lantern hanging from the boat is the only indication that this image is in fact not a black and white shot.
