Big Cities and Little 'uns
Waiting on the Solstice Sun
Up in the northwest fjords of Iceland, the roads end but the land keeps going.There is this distant island, pictured here, that has no roads at all. It seems so remote and... well... scary. I don't know why I get that foreboding sense! It just feels so lonely, so far north... the cliffs are so sheer... no one to hear you scream... and these sorts of things. I do like being remote, but this is a little too remote.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
The Yosemite Valley
This was my first trip to Yosemite ever, so I was pretty excited. I've been to Yellowstone about a dozen times, but this has always been a blank spot for me. It was a great trip and we had all sorts there from the Google+ PhotoWalk.The first evening there had a nice set of pinks and some vermillion reflections that cascaded down the valley. Subsequent days had me traveling all the way down the valley to see all the same mountains from a variety of perspectives.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read more at the Stuck in Customs blog.
The Bird’s Nest From Above I was at the top of this tower late one night in Beijing. It’s a cool tower (I don’t have a photo of it), but it’s the kind of tower that will look awful in about 10 years. Anyway, this photo is not about the tower.The famous Bird’s Nest stadium was spread out beneath me. When I saw this scene, I knew I was going to shave off the top and the bottom. The bottom was kind of interesting. The top was dreadful. It’s a bit painful to take a photo when I know I’m going to be cutting out so much, but I do it quite often anyway.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
