Yau-Sun,

 

A lovely landscape with great composition, depth, color and clarity.

 

Paul

 

Greetings and thank you Paul!

 

It was just before a hail storm, the lighting on the sky was not too good at that moment, a bit flat and lacking of drama. And after the storm, the ground was too soggy even for a 4-wheel-drive Landcruiser, was extremely difficult to move at all on that vast high-mountain grassland (see attached photo below showing after the hail/rain storm). But the area was truly pristine and fresh. We stayed on the mountain top in the Kazakh yurts, and the next early morning was more interesting for photos, and observing the life of the nomads.

      A snapshot from a unexpected place on this planet...
       
      The subdued lighting of weather, the huge white snow covered black rock mountain, vast space of sky, the large chunky iceberg, the open water, all accentuated by the team of seemingly tiny reddish-kayaks...
       
      And that prompted me to have captured the moment quickly with a D-lux5...

      Greetings!
       
      Each time after leading our Special Cultural/Photographic Expeditions, I'd make a "photo-diary" with snapshots taken with a little pocket-sized Leica point & shoot camera… those images are just for that purpose - snapshots for a photo-dirary of that trip…
       
      But after our fascinating 2010 October "Taklimakan Desert Expedition" (http://photoart.chebucto.org/photos-folder/2010_Taklimakan%20Desert_Expedition_PhotoDiary.pdf), I did not make a photo-diary… the reason was that I felt my snapshots were not what-so-ever up to par to represent the rich & colourful culture/nature we had experienced and enjoyed during our 4,000km journey across & around the World's second largest desert…
       
      Until few days ago, two of our participants of that journey from Vancouver Island who are visiting Nova Scotia, we met again here in Halifax, Ray and Judith told me how much they enjoyed the travel in 2010… and also sent to me the below note: (quoted here, with their permission)
       
      ----------
      Our trip to Xinjiang with Yau-Sun was the best trip we have ever taken. We went to places that no “tourist tour” would ever have taken us, and we experienced real life in the off-the-beaten-track villages. The opportunities for photography were fabulous. The vast and haunting Taklamakan desert, joyous Tajik weddings, yurts in the foothills of the stunning Kunlun Mountain range, the hustling and sense-assaulting Kashgar market ….so many memories captured in our photographs.
      It is a trip we will never, ever forget.
       
      ~ Judith Green & Ray Anderson
      Duncan, British Columbia
      ------------
       
      Judith and Ray's compliment really moved me, and prompted me to act for this much due late photo-diary for a truly - "Gone, But not Forgotten" experience…

      Here is another long overdue photo-diary: http://photoart.chebucto.org/photos-folder/2010_Tea-Horse-Trail_Expedition_PhotoDiary.pdf
       
      Although the expedition was in Summer of 2010, but because feeling that I lack of adequate snapshots to form a photo-diary that could proximately reflect our well-done expedition... so never had made that photo-diary until recently thinking it is still better to have a not so good one than no photo-diary for that yet another "Gone, but not forgotten" memorable journey to a part of the world so special...
       
      So share with you here is my http://photoart.chebucto.org/photos-folder/2010_Tea-Horse-Trail_Expedition_PhotoDiary.pdf
