Gold Rush

It's not easy to find a good spot for a sunrise or a sunset in Hong Kong, unless you actually go to the coast. However, with the beautiful weather we had on the first day of the lunar calendar, I decided to go and shoot in Wanchai and enjoy a stroll in unusually quiet streets ...

Mountain on Fire

Sentinel Bridge is another location in Yosemite National Park made famous by Ansel Adams. It's a great place to enjoy a beautiful view of Half Dome reflecting in the Merced river, especially at sunset when the iconic mountain is glowing under the warm evening light.

Machines from Another Time

When in Death Valley National Park, my biggest fear was to run out of gas, which almost happened as I had underestimated the small size of the tank. Fortunately, the gas station at the exit of the park came as a real salvation. Not only that, it has a few antique machines displayed outside, helping ...

The Temple of Pure Water

Kiyiomizudera, one of the major temples in Kyoto "floats" over red autumn foliage thanks to its stage built on wooden pillars, bringing it about 12 meters high over the ground. This year's red foliage wasn't actually the most impressive one. It had suddenly got cold then the temperature rose again, preventing the leaves from turning ...

The Great Torii

This photo was taken at Miyajima, a place I should have visited a long time ago but never did. In a way, I'm happy I waited long enough for my photography skills to be a little sharpened up, as I was able to take advantage of the seemingly cloudy weather (something that might have put ...

Sunset at Qutab Minar

For my first day in India, I had a busy schedule visiting as many sites as I could in Delhi, knowing I'd be leaving the same evening for Agra to visit the Taj Mahal the following day. To end this quick tour in Delhi, I decided to visit Qutab Minar, a beautiful minaret from the ...

Another Face of Hong Kong

I have been guilty of portraying Hong Kong as a crazy city with tall buildings and narrow streets, while leaving aside another one of its important aspects: the countless hikes in the mountains and other green areas. Thanks to talented photographer Justin Law and to Canon HK organising workshops for members of the Club Canon, ...

Half Dome at Sunset

This is a view not to be missed in Yosemite Park. Although any photo with the Half Dome in it almost instantly becomes a classic, this particular shot gives you a nice view on the famous rock reflecting on the Mercer river, while the soft light gives the bit of colour you need to brighten ...

Rains of Blessing

In Zion National Park, a favorite location to shoot the sunset is from the bridge close to Canyon Junction bus stop. The location allows you to have a nice view of The Watchman while including the river in the foreground. It's an absolute cliché shot but one that you need to have in your collection! ...

Layer Cake Island

White Pocket in Arizona has got to be one of the most fascinating places I've ever seen. It's like nothing else out there, with such a huge diversity of formations ranging from cauliflower type of rocks to sandstone, with swirls and waves all over the place. The place may not be as famous as The ...
