The Opposite Hotel
What an amazing hotel in the heart of Beijing! Thank you all for the suggestion to go here... I love this kind of neo-modern-techno architecture, so it was a real treat to run around and take photos everywhere. I was like a man possessed :)This is the lower pool area. It was dark in there for sure. I used a tripod to make sure the exposure was long enough to get the effect I was going for.The video on the right is from another part of the hotel... up in my room... where you can see some cool things as well as what was in my bag.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read more, including an exciting announcement for Android fans, at the Stuck in Customs blog.
The Secret Crystal Lake
This remote lake was so icy cold. You would think it's about 33 degrees or something, right? It felt like absolute zero. I dropped a little piece of my tripod in here and my hand almost froze off trying to retrieve it.In the distance you can see where the glacier comes into contact with the glassy lake; it gives a sense of the epic scale here.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
Deep into the Jungle Mists I was many kilometers down this river away from the town. I got off my little boat to do some hiking up through the hills through the jungle. It was dense. Even when there was a little opening, it still felt like leaves and vines were pressing in on me. On occasion, I would see a wider break that let me see into the mysterious beyond.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
