After the trip to China and before I came back to Wisconsin, I stopped in St. Louis at my parents' place for a short visit. It was just turning Autumn then so I took a few pictures of the neighborhood. We live in a very natural area with trees and a few ponds, its very pretty.

Hong Kong Part I

Hong Kong is a very scenic city, although extremely crowded, it offers a great chance for photography, the few days I stayed there yielded great results. Its very foggy and smoggy sometimes so clear days are extremely rare. Street views should use HDR to try as much as possible to avoid the white glare of the sky:

I've been in Nanjing the last few days and while its not as impressive as Beijing, it does have its own sights. Outside of family and large dinners, Nanjing's air quality is much better than Beijing and I had several days with clear sky.

Here a picture of Nanjing from the 17th story of a tower:

Summer Palace(Yi He Yuan) in Beijing

I went to one of my favorite places in Beijing today, the Summer Palace(Yi He Yuan). For some reason, there was a giant duck in the Lake. I think it was a gift from the French or something(they give America the Statue of Liberty but give China a large plastic Duck). I did go around sunset so I did catch some great sunset moments:

I've been spending the last several days in Beijing checking out some of its sights and in the areas around Beijing. Beijing is nearly always clouded by pollution these days so its hard to find a clear day. For instance:

 

Forbidden City

 

This pictures was taken mid day. Its hazy not because the camera is (...)

Instead of driving out by car, I went out by Bike today along Glacial Drumlin. Its still a bit early as the leaves haven't really changed colors yet but the cornstalks are all up and the fields are mostly yellow. Some of my favorite shots are of Rock Lake near Lake Mills.

Got up at dawn today to do some HDR photography work before sunrise. The results were pretty good for the sets that came out ok. I got several pictures of the shoreline and sunrise on Lake Monona at Dawn.

Went to the Wisconsin Iowa Border 2 days ago and visited Nelson Dewey State Park and Wyalusing State Park. Both were very scenic, having high bluff views of the Mississippi and Wisconsin River. I also got photomatix a few days ago to make HDR photos and although (...)
