The Most Magnificent Lake in China (The West Lake, Hangzhou)

2010-02-27 25

They said, it’s like a ‘heaven on earth’ in Hangzhou. Why did they said so?

Hangzhou is a city rich of tea, silk and famous with it’s natural beauty and cultural heritages. It’s indeed like in heaven, on earth. And the most attractive attraction in the city are definitely a must-go place in Hangzhou was the West Lake.

There are lots of west or east lakes around the whole China, but the most magnificent one belongs to this west lake at Hangzhou. West Lake is man-made and created after the Chinese love for garden style parks for recreation. It surrounded by mountains on 3 sides, with an area of around 6.5 square kilometers.

There are beautiful flowers, trees and plant surrounded the lake, which make the place a great place for family outing, recreation park, picnic, exercising and etc. Take your time to walk around, it’s indeed a very beautiful moment. A slow cruise along the lake made us slowly enjoy the breeze, on another point of view. The moment and the picture of the beautiful scenic view of the lake are, priceless, to me.

    On my birthday, I climbed the holiest mountain of Bali on a genuine pilgrimage. Walking towards Pura Besakih is also a tale about Balinese Hinduism, which is a singularity in Indonesia. So tighten your sarong around your hips and stick with me on this spiritual passage through the gates of heaven.

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.

    Vicuna's Travel Stories | Burkina Faso: The Land of Upright People

    When someone asks me why I love Burkina Faso so much and what's so special about it, I answer without any hesitation: the people. There's something in this country that connects the people together very strongly. Here, foreign visitors are warmly welcomed. And honestly, I think that the portraits I'm most proud of and that I really love are those shot in Burkina Faso. "Why," you ask?

    A Salute to the Masters: Bare Soles in Como (A Tribute to Christopher Anderson)

    The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare feet images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!

    In 2009, Neil Krug uploaded a commercial for Pulp Art Book on Youtube. In the comments section someone asked, “Does anyone know what kind of camera he uses or how he gets his pictures to look the way they do?” Krug was on to something. He did something wildly intriguing, one that looked to have a secret formula.
