I wish to visit the Glacier some day again, soon, before the glaciers are completely gone -- according to the article, "Scientists say that by 2030 all will be gone."

我们一行八人租了一辆国内叫做“商务车”的小面包，车的外观与 minivan 没有多少差别，但是车内却多了一排座，显得有些拥挤。我们也没有机会细做安排，到了婺源县境，天色已透亮。在路边看到了晓起村的大广告牌，就将车拐进了晓起。
我们的车出了江湾，回头看去，白墙黑瓦的村子在烟雨中格外醒目。我们在路边停下车，我奔向村子的方向，拍下了《江湾 - 雨中印象》。没有三脚架，只好把有些模糊的照片处理成油画了。

The extra long (2491.5 seconds) exposure has recorded tracks of stars, movement of clouds, even a car driving across the desert scene. Night scene is transformed into day. Reading this picture, you see time frozen in this snapshot, yet you feel time flying away fast at the same moment.
This is only one example of the photographer's marvelous work.

When I got to the larger sized image, I saw the TV tower further in the fog. This tower on the east bank of the Huang-Pu River has been a landmark of the new Shanghai.
It should be early spring now in Shanghai. Soon the wet season will begin. Shanghai, and large parts of China south of the Yangtze River, will be drenched by spring rain that never ends. But then the earth will become green -- may be it already is over there...
The layers in the photo is intriguing. The three birds not only balance the composition of the image, but also add motion to it as well. Over all a non-flashy photograph, very much like the subtle season in that land.

This one drew me in. It is good photograph, although may be not the best from her. The title certainly caught my attention.
Many people seem to agree with my thoughts expressed in my "God's Billboard" entry on this blog. I am not religious but I do admire people who truly believe. I just despise those who only want others to believe that they believe.
Back to the photo. The tension from her hands creates an attraction to the red flower in the center of the picture. Overall, the lighting is very well done and the red colors make the entire image dramatic.

We drove around quite a bit the second day and took some pictures. But the perfect lighting and shadows from the previous day's clouds were gone.
Looks like California has moved one step ahead of the rest of the country.
