Summer Vacation | China Trip 2015 Day 7 | Wuyi Rafting & Hiking Heaven-Traveling Peak

China Travel

Day 7 of our China adventure kept us in the Wuyi mountains of Fujian province, this time starting off with some rafting in the morning before things got too hot and then MORE hiking after lunch! We braved “Heaven-Traveling Peak” which is touted as the No. 1 scenic spot in Wuyi, beautiful view – way too many steps to climb!

Our “captain” pulled over and gave us some shore time to explore a little outcropping – but I think it was more for them to have a smoke break, lol!

Reminded us of Horseshoe Bend in the American West! It’s almost like the Colorado River… almost…

About to make that trek up those stairs behind us to the green spot on the veeeery top!

Those tiny stairs so far away are what we just climbed up, the little pavilion is where we took the first set of pictures from before these.

When we were done we swung by “A Thread of Sky” a super narrow canyon…

Beijing Day 3: Summer Palace & Winter Palace
Here is our long awaited (or not) follow up blog post to what else we were up to in Beijing during our May 2010 trip to China.

Next up on our list of historic sites was the Summer Palace and the Winter Palace (Yuan Ming Yuan) on Day 3 of our time in Beijing. The Summer Palace was pretty packed when we were there, with many other Chinese tourists and school children seeing this historic site. Much like the Temple of Heaven, the Summer Palace historic site also includes a huge national park area with many smaller buildings and t ...

New York City Christmas 2015 | Sony A7ii Travel Photography
New York City Christmas Even with this unseasonably warm Winter, it still looks like Christmas all around New York City! With the holiday displays in the windows and the lights installations around Manhattan, you can't help but feel the holiday magic (even if it's 60 degrees outside)! Being a Floridian at heart I think I'll take this warm weather, but I did wish we had a White Christmas this year for Miles to see =). All photos taken here with the Sony A7ii and Zeiss 16-35mm f/4 OSS lens of course! Bryant Park's fountain has not frozen yet, and the Winter Village with ice skating is full of people for the holidays! ...

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 ...
