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!

Miles got to stand up on the front of the boat for a photo with the famous mountain peak in the background.

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…

Fall in the City | New York City with the Sony A7R 2014
Going through some older photos from the end of 2014, here are a few from some walks around Manhattan =). Besides eating lots of ramen and drinking espresso, I love checking out the city for cool New York City engagement session locations or places for a pre-wedding photo shoot. These first few photos were taken with the handy Sony A7R, my favorite walk around camera (and reviewed as a wedding photographer's camera in these links to other blog posts). Check out a few photos from this random afternoon grabbing some ramen and walking around the Chinatown/Brooklyn Bridge area of lower Manhattan with the A7R! ...
