Photo Mania – Cherry Blossoms in full bloom

Places Unknown

The Cherry Blossoms are in full bloom. There are thousands of people coming out to look at them, everyone taking photos. Some are looking super pros, with big camera, click, click, click. Some are somewhere in the middle with midsize cameras and P&S. Some are with their smart phones only. True photo mania.

Nubble Light

Places Unknown

You might remember my two previous posts with Nubble Light, you can see them under the Maine/York category. For this one I was trying to get very low and close to the water and try to get reflection of the Nubble Light in this little water puddle. The angles did not work at all and I could not get it into the view. Also I had to be very careful walking on this rock, it was very slippery and I did not want to crash into the water.

Times Square Reflections

Places Unknown

It was pouring rain in NYC when I showed up at the Times Square, my shoes got soaked wet in about five minutes, but I was hoping to get some interesting shots of this famous place with some cool reflections. It is probably the busiest place in USA, the crowds never stop, morning or midnight. This rain actually helped with pushing most of them into the stores and off the street. The place is amazing!!!

Cheer Up with Colors

Places Unknown

Yesterday was a beautiful day with temperatures around 60F, which overnight changed into rain and right now it is cold and grey, weather man predicting abut 4-6 inches of snow in North Carolina mountains and potential snow at lower elevations as well. To cheer myself up I decided to post this colorful autumn photo from North Carolina mountains, where it is probably snowing at the moment.

This is Blue Ridge Parkway’s Lin Cove Viaduct, snaking around Grandfather Mountain. Enjoy!

Turpan; Hottest Place on Earth?

Places Unknown

I’m not sure if it is the hottest place, but it is definitely the hottest I’ve ever had a chance to visit. Day time temperatures get to around 65-70C, which is around 150-160F! The bellow giant thermometer shows 65C. This is the home to the Bull Demon King and Iron-fan Princess.

Do you think people live in those conditions? Of course they do. They adapt to it and make very interesting architectural changes to their houses.  

Turpan is located in western part of China, in Xin Jiang province, about 150 miles east from Urumqi. We rented a car from our hotel – with a driver – to take us there. It was not cheap, but money spent is totally worth the experience we got from the trip, and convenience of a good car, with good AC, with local driver who knows how to drive Chinese highways is really priceless.
