Views of Dhaulagiri

                              Hiking in the Annapurna region of Nepal is just spectacular!   This image was taken up on Kopra Ridge where there is a simple lodge that sits on a finger of land surrounded by deep gorge.  Ahead is the magnificent…

In the Mountainous Fields of Ha Giang

First Glimpse – Ha Giang

  Recently I spent an amazing week photographing Ha Giang.    This gallery is the first sneak peak of the week which was filled with awe-inspiring mountains and impossibly beautiful views along with loads of wonderful people.   Enjoy  🙂   I’m also working on a project to help raise funds for some of Vietnam’s…

Looking across to the Forbidden City from the top of Jingshan Park

Beautiful Beijing – Views from Jingshan Park

While a winters day in Beijing can be kind of grim at times, there are occasions mid afternoon when the sky is blue, air is chilly and the light turns simply sublime – bathing stunning sites such as the ancient Forbidden City in gorgeous tones of rose gold. These images are the result of one…

Beautiful details of classic Qing dynasty architecture in Yangmei, near Nanning, China.

Ancient Yangmei

  This is a collection of images from the sleepy living relic of times gone by – Yangmei.  A place where art students and discerning tourists come, hoping to catch a glimpse into a bygone era where the treasures are being preserved in an olde world atmosphere.   Surrounded by river on 3 sides this seemingly…

Fuchuan Wind & Rain Bridges, Guangxi, China

I love these wind and rain bridges, and it seems the more disheveled the better.   I am a little…

Spending time here often felt like I had stepped into a totally different world – one that was very…

Always a sucker…
