Summer Vacation | China Trip 2015 Day 6 | Wuyi Mountain Hiking

China Travel

Day 6 of our China Summer Vacation series! We started with exploring the natural beauty of the Wuyi Mountain area which is a famous area in China for the mountain range. Basically a National Park like we have in the US, super popular with tourists for it’s beauty and clean air… and of course it’s tea! So yeah, tea is huge in China, very hard for me to find some morning coffee anywhere in China but especially here in Wuyi where tea is king :). For our Sixth day in China we began exploring the hiking trails of Wuyi, winding through the mountains and next to tea growing freely next to you. Today on Day 6 we did some light introductory trails, only a couple of kilometers with minimal hiking… more to come!

In the morning we saw Betty’s cousin Pei-pei briefly before she was off to study some more!

Caught up with a tourist group as I got closer to civilization at the end of the trails, apparently I took the long way around! An unmistakable sight in China, wearing heels everywhere, even on a hiking trail in the mountains!

Another unmistakable sight in China, pre-wedding photo shoots in any scenic location! We saw this every day we passed this access portion of the river, and everywhere in Shanghai as you will see in an upcoming blog post from that part of the trip!

Personal | Daytrip to the Great Smoky Mountains with Jing & Ping
I've been pretty good about pumping out the wedding-related posts, and even recently doing a quick write-up of a new restaurant in Downtown Altanta. What I have not done recently, is shared any personal photos of just our normal life, which mostly revolves around Miles of course. Well, most days for us are really not that exciting with a schedule of waking up, taking Miles to the park and/or museum, while either Betty works on her dissertation or I edit wedding photos/videos. A couple of weeks ago when it was still relatively chilly out, we headed up to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to take Betty's PhD classmate and visiting profess ...

End of Summer in New York City | Family Sunday at the Central Park Zoo & Roosevelt Island
Fall weather is arriving and the temperature up here in New York is just amazing right now! Friday I was down in Atlanta shooting a beautiful wedding at Jaffari Center, pouring rain all day outside on Friday and raining all day Saturday for my flight back home to New York. Saturday afternoon and Sunday? Amazing 75 degree Fall weather - while it is pouring rain in Atlanta. Ah, the difference of a thousand miles :). We decided to take advantage of the great weather, and the fact that I was only gone for 1 day this weekend for the wedding so I was home on Sunday, to head into New York City with Miles and take him to the Central Park Zoo and Roos ...

Random Vlog #2 & Sony RX100V Photos at Roosevelt Island Cherry Blossoms
No wedding this week! So in an effort to keep that online content flowing, I put together a quick non-wedding vlog of our Sunday trip to Roosevelt Island and Central Park. Okay so not super exciting wedding-related content for THIS blog, and okay not the best vlog for YouTube either but it was fun playing around with the newly acquired RX100V and testing some settings - mainly Slow Motion and recording in the Slog2 profile which makes editing the videos a little different from my previous Sony A7ii video and vlogging workflow. The previous RX100V Wedding Photography vlog from two weeks ago in Richmond, Virginia I used the native 4K setting ...
