Nikko

Nikko is a UNESCO world heritage site, for good reason. It houses a large complex of historic temples with a very ornate architectural style that is not widely seen in the rest of Japan. Unlike the Western perception of minimalist “Zen” architecture, these temples are encrusted with brightly painted carvings.…

Peru Creek

We did this campsite towards the end of summer and it was pretty cool winter night. So nice warm jacket and gloves are recommended if you’re shooting at night time. The temperature dropped to high 40’s at night since we did our put our tent near tree lines and woke…

Girnar Hills Trek

Girnar hills isn’t literally a trek (no camping grounds), but a climb of over 9999 steps carved into the mountain, which ends up at the summit that hosts a Hindu temple. On reaching the summit, you can see many mountains further but they are usually not scaled. The entire trekking…

Manhattan View from Brooklyn Bridge Park

I’ve so enjoyed playing around with night photography lately. However, I’ve learned that finding a photogenic scene without construction, ugly wires, ugly buildings or other aesthetics impediments have been more difficult than I thought.

In Manhattan, motor cars can enter from either direction of the FDR Drive, Park Row, Chambers/Centre Streets, and Pearl/Frankfort Streets. Pedestrian and bicycle access to…

Zabriskie Point Sunrise

Death Valley has some of the most unusual colors you’ll ever see in a landscape, and the Zabriskie area is no exception. It’s an alien landscape of maze-like canary yellow ridges tiger striped with chocolate browns. It has ravines of pistachio green rock topped with pink gravel—bizarre and wonderful. You…

Sugarloaf Mountain

If you plan on hiking to the summit before opening hours or after closing hours, you should park your car outside the gates of the main entrance. Otherwise your car might get locked in. You can obtain a map of the mountain and all trails at the entrance free of…

Floe Lake

It was becoming late in the season when I reached Floe Lake, it was early October and I was lucky not to be trudging through snow due to the dry spell at the time. I arrived late in the evening and so did not get much of a chance to…

Sandy Point State Park

The DMV area is not exactly known for being a very photogenic region in general but this place is great for viewing sunrise. You can also see the golden sunlight hit the Bay Bridge, making it almost look attractive. For sunrise photos, I would get here at around 5 A.M.…

Karnali Bridge

This is an iconic single pier cable stayed bridge spanning 500 mtrs over the Karnali River, the longest river of Nepal. You may wish to photograph the bridge either at dusk or dawn. A wide angle lens is recommended.
