Callander Crags, Scotland, taken on October 31, 2015
While taking this photo, I was in a fascinated state of mind. I stood in awe as I emerged from an area of dense woodlands, completely not expecting that a vast landscape of hills would sudden appear in front of me out of nowhere. The hills seemed so far away, yet so paradoxically close – and the skies were so unconventionally clear for Scotland. I was genuinely content at that moment and I felt it necessary to pause and immerse myself in the pureness of nature, recognizing how small and insignificant I am among the hills, under the great sky.

The lochs and hills of Scotland are such lovely treasures of this mystic country – I wonder how many love stories have taken place along the bonnie banks o’ loch lomond, hopefully with better endings than that in the song 😦

Oops! While snowshoeing, Jaro had a great fall – ouch! In hindsight, though, he seemed to have enjoyed his time in the snow, huh!

The most famous trio in Zhangjiajie would have to be these three sisters – made of stone. The “Three Sisters Peak” is one of the many attractions in the scenic areas around Zhangjiajie. I don’t remember what the other two were doing, but the one in the middle was definitely holding onto her newborn baby.

Isle of Mull, Scotland, taken on June 14, 2015
It is interesting to look at what’s beneath your feet from a different perspective, as sometimes we don’t pay much attention to the road we walk. That was exactly what I did on the Isle of Mull, near Duart Castle. Tired after a long hike, I lay down on the grass, the very ground that I had stepped on as I arrived at this place. From this point of view, the mountains in a distance looked so small and insignificant, yet I knew not to be fooled! How many more steps would it take to get to the other side of the waters? I wondered…!
