Amazing Fireworks Exploding Inside a Cloud Over the River

I did make it to the postponed fireworks show down on Lake Austin last night. It was very stormy, as usual, and they shot off a bunch of the fireworks into some low clouds, which caused some very strange and interesting results.

I missed my trip to Shanghai because of some travel visa issues, but it was nice to be in Austin for a few bonus days to see the big show.

I’ve decided to call this shot “Tongue of Satan”.

Also, I get many requests about how I do this stuff… I have a tutorial up right here. It’s poorly written. Sorry about that.

Stampede of the Wild Horses

After a long hike through the mountains of Yellowstone, I came across over 40 horses sprinting from one meadow to the next. I stepped behind a tree to get out of the way and shot this one.

There were no fireworks, but there was this nice sunset

I went out to my secret spot to get fireworks shots (that is not all that secret), but they did not shoot off because of all the high water and floods. But, there was still a great sunset… so I snapped this one.

I’m off to Shanghai – fresh shots soon! :)

Streaming Light at the Fortified Gatehouse

This gatehouse sits on one side of the moat of Angkor Wat. We were not supposed to be inside the gate this late but my monk friend has some pull with the locals.

The Royal Anandapur Tea Company

For some reason this tea looks really good, even though most teas taste the same to me.
