Zhangjiajie, China – Looking back at the hairpin turns that were taken to ascend the Tianzi Mountains (taken on August 11, 2010)
Isle of Skye, Scotland, taken on July 1, 2016
Skye is a photographer’s heaven and there is no shortage of good photo opportunities. The Fairy Pools are one of the most visited attractions of Skye, and while I’ll be completely honest and say I was a little underwhelmed by the actual pools themselves, the mountains that served as the backdrop were simply magnificent and awe-inspiring! (See the original photo in colour.)
Isle of Mull, Scotland, taken on June 14, 2015
On Mull, I spotted a white lighthouse almost floating in the water in a distance. I asked the bus driver what that was, and he said, “That’s Lismore.” I later found that the lighthouse was indeed Eilean Musdile on the island of Lismore, not too far from Mull. Such beautiful scenery, and the lighthouse appeared so small in the midst of the majestic mountains in the background!
Mount Rigi, Switzerland, taken on January 11, 2014
Landscapes are one of my favourite types of photos to take, and Switzerland is certainly blessed with some of the most breathtaking landscape I’ve ever seen. In fact, Switzerland was my favourite place in Europe…until I went to Iceland 😉 Mount Rigi is really a magical place, even out of this world, perhaps.
