Situated on the banks of the Li River, Yangshuo in southeast China is surrounded by limestone mountains that are a beautiful backrop to a culture filled city. It was the last day on a visit there in September of 2013, an early morning rise to catch a bus to the next city made for a last chance at capturing this stunning landscape.
Fall is in full swing in the Yukon Territory. These 2 Trumpeter Swans along the Klondike Highway between Whitehorse and Dawson City are of the last to leave the Canada’s north and make their way south.
As a blast of arctic air embraced southern Alberta this past week, many Albertans no doubt found themselves thinking of warmer climates. One warm place that stood out among other experiences for me was a visit to Spitzkoppe, Namibia in May of 2010. As the warmth of the African day continued into the evening, my group and I ascended one of the many rock outcrops that rose up from the desert floor to watch the sun set; this photo was one of many taken that evening.
While recently travelling through Nepal during the week long Dasain festival, Hindu holy men called Sadhu were present throughout Kathmandu. I had seen this Sadhu pass by me on the street the previous day however this time around he was stopping to bless people and administer the red tilaka to almost everyone on the street. After receiving a blessing and the tilaka, he stopped for a brief moment and allowed me to take his photo.
