Tianzi Mountains, China



Tianzi Mountain is located in Zhangjiajie in the Hunan Province of China, close to the Suoxi Valley. It is named after the farmer Xiang Dakun of the Tujia ethnic group, who led a successful local farmers' revolt and called himself "tianzi". This means "son of heaven" and is the traditional epithet of the Chinese emperor. After seeing the floating mountains which came in the Avatar movie, this mountain was also pretended to be the same.

Lake Retba, Senegal



Lake Retba or Lac Rose lies north of the Cap Vert peninsula of Senegal, north east of Dakar. It is so named for its pink waters, caused by Dunaliella salina algae in the water that produce a red pigment that uses sunlight to create more energy, turning the waters pink. The color is particularly visible during the dry season. The lake is also known for its high salt content, which, like that of the Dead Sea, allows people to float easily. The lake also has a small salt collecting industry and was often the finishing point of the Dakar Rally, before it moved to South America in 2009.

Zhangye Danxia Landform, China



The Danxia landform refers to various landscapes found in southeast and southwest China that "consist of a red bed characterized by steep cliffs". It is a unique type of petrographic geomorphology found in China. Danxia landform is formed from red-coloured sandstones and conglomerates of largely Cretaceous age. The landforms look very much like karst topography that forms in areas underlain by limestones, but since the rocks that form danxia are sandstones and conglomerates, they have been called "pseudo-karst" landforms. Danxia landforms cover several provinces in southeast China. Taining County, Fujian Province, has very good examples of "young" danxia landforms wherein deep, narrow valleys have been formed. As the landform gets older, valleys widen and one gets isolated towers and ridges. The danxia landform is named after Mount Danxia, one of the most famous examples of the danxia landform.

The park covers an area of ??3.5 hectares and the flowers are amazing all year round. Each season you will find a different variety of flower blossoming over the "Miharashi No Oka", a hill commanding a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean.

Nordbugt Peak



Photo Credit : Peter Eastway

"I have recently been lucky enough to travel to Greenland and Norway, the lands of the midnight sun! Certainly one of the highlights of the trip was staying up until past midnight, watching the sun dip below the horizon only to re-appear a few minutes later. No darkness at all!

Mind you, Joshua Holko who I travelled with explained that August was better than the middle of June when the sun was directly overhead - all day! In August you get sunsets that last for several hours, followed by sunrises that last for several more!

The image above is a work in progress. Looking at the file converted into sRGB for web and email, the reds are too strong. They don't look quite so raw with a DCam 3 profile on my Eizo monitor or my Wacom Cintiq - oh, for colour managed internet! It will happen!

This is a mountain peak in Nordbugt, one of the fjords on the south-east coast of Greenland. If you think this is amazing, wait until you see Josh's photo of the same peak taken an hour or so later with a row of neat clouds around its base! We mightn't have seen a lot of wildlife on our trip, but we saw some amazing spectacles and incredible landscapes.

Mark August 2015 in your diary if you want to come along on a return trip!

This photo was taken from a zodiac with an ultra wide-angle lens. The low camera angle helps with the reflection, while a spot or two of sunlight added some drama and mystery."
