  1. "The Painted Veil", Guilin, Guangxi Province, China
    An incredible sunrise over one of the most spectacular landscapes on the surface of this planet.

    《江山如画》 ,中国阳朔
    如画的山峰点缀着大地。漓江如美丽的缎带飘洒其中。 这是全世界最美的地点之一。漫天的朝霞更让我难忘。






  2. "Painted Mountains",Guilin, Guangxi Province, China
    Layer after layer of mountains lie agnest the backdrop of a golden horizon at sunset time. I have been to so many beautiful locations around the world, and I have to agree with an old Chinese saying: "Guilin's mountains and rivers beat them all."
    《如歌的晚峰》,广西桂林
    日落时分,层层群峰在金色的天边徐徐展开。 我曾经见证过全世界无数美景, 但站在这里,
    我依旧想起 “桂林山水甲天下”一说。古人诚不我欺也。






  3. "The Splendid Prairie", Inner Mongolia, China
    Finalist, 4th Annual Nature's Colors Photo Contest, Outdoor Photographer Magazine.
    On a chilly autumn morning, I captured one of the most amazing scenes I had ever witnessed.

  4. "Morning Glory", Banff National Park, Canada
    First rays of sunlight lit the peaks surrounded the beautiful emerald Peyto Lake.
    《Peyto湖日出全景》,加拿大班芙国家公园
    初升的阳光把山头映照得鲜红,如蓝绿宝石般的冰川湖水,似镜子般映照出山头的红光和天空中微妙的色彩,让人恍若处于仙境。



  5. "Amphitheater in Winter", Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah, USA

    《血红雪白》,美国犹他州布莱斯峡谷国家公园

  6. "In the Forest of Life", Rain Forest, Oregon, USA

    《生命之林》 ,美国俄勒冈州温带雨林






  7. "Nature's Splendor", Jasper National Park, Canada
    A spectacular Sunset Over Maligen Lake, one of the most beautiful lakes in Canadian Rockies.
    《玛琳湖日落》,加拿大Jasper国家公园
    这个视角很常见,那天的晚霞也不是壮丽的火烧云。可是这依然是我见过的最美丽的日落场景之一。

    周围万籁俱静。白天熙熙攘攘的游客全部都回旅馆了,除了另一个远道从英国来的摄影师外,见不到一个游人。
    夕阳把山头染的通红。这个加拿大洛矶山脉中最著名最漂亮的湖泊的最美时分,让我又一次心跳加速,可惜几乎所有的游客都错过了这场光影大餐。



  8. "A Perfect Autumn Morning", Michigan, USA
    《绝美秋色》,美国密执根州



  9. "Northern Sunrise", Alaska, USA
    Sunrise behind the impossibly jagged peaks and glaciers of a remote Alaska area on a stormy morning.
    My friend Marc Adamus and I had to be picked up by a helicopter a few hours later because of the approaching storm.
    《破晓》,美国阿拉斯加州一个非常偏远的高山之上

    暴风雨即将到来前的那个清晨,高耸的山峰和冰川上乌云变换。几个小时后,我和我的伙伴马克.爱德姆斯就必须被直升机接下山去,以免被困在风暴中。
    整个上午,四周所有的山峰都一直被低云笼罩,我还担心直升机过不来。但技术高超的飞行员一路顺着峡谷,在云层之下低空飞行,
    最后接上了我们。






  10. "Secret Passage", Oregon, USA
    A brilliant sunset outside a hidden sea cave in Oregon coast.
    《心之隧道》,美国俄勒冈海岸。
    站在这个隐秘的太平洋海边的岩洞之中,我看到的是一个巨大的心。
    贝壳和海星在石壁上顽强地生长。 隧洞之外,火红的晚霞在天际尽情地辉煌。




  11. "Olympic Fantasy", Olympic National Park, Washington, USA

    《魔幻天空》,美国奥林匹克国家公园海滩
    落日的余晖,把天空演绎成一个魔幻的世界。海滩上如镜的残留海水,映出远处海中岩柱的倒影。




  12. "The Garden of Eden", Alaska, USA
    Melting water from glaciers tumbles down from the surrounding high peaks.
    Millions of dwarf fireweed flowers cover the entire banks and the floor this extremely faraway valley, surrounded
    by soaring peaks, blue glaciers, and countless waterfalls, as far as the eyes could see.

    《伊甸园》,美国阿拉斯加州一个非常偏远的峡谷
    当直升机第一次降落在这个从未有人来访过的山谷的时候,我被四周的景色震撼地说不出话。
    从不远的高山冰川流下的雪水一路欢畅的流向山谷。峡谷的四周,是高耸的尖峰,蔚蓝的冰川,还有数不清的瀑布。
    落日的云影在溪水中飘动。 在视线所能看见的地方,是无穷无尽的鲜花,盛开在岸边, 铺满了山谷,如同传说中的幻境。




  13. "The Power of Ocean", Oregon, USA
    Epic waves crashed into the cliffs near Cape Kiwanda during golden sunset time.
    《惊涛拍岸》,美国俄勒冈州太平洋海岸
    金色的夕阳下,滔天巨浪不断扑向海边的悬崖上。





  14. "A White Autumn", Patagonia, Los Glaciares National Park, Argentina.
    An unexpected snow storm during the peak fall color season turned the rugged Patagonia mountain
    scenery into a fairytale-esque landscape.

    《雪中秋色》, 巴塔哥尼亚,阿根廷冰川国家公园
    一场突然到来的暴风雪把巴塔哥尼亚高山上的绚烂秋景变成了童话世界。






  15. "Midnight Swirl", Yukon Territory, Canada
    Mysterious auroras swirl the midnight sky of this extremely remote mountain ranges near the Arctic circle.

    Technique Notes: This is a very complicated shot consists of 16 exposures. Fourteen consecutive frames
    using ISO 6300/f2.8/30-sec were used for focus-stacking and multi-frame-average-noise-reduction to get a high-quality,
    sharp foreground image under such difficult dark conditions. The reflection was captured using ISO 12800/f2.8/8 seconds.
    The aurora itself was recorded by tilting the lens to include more sky, using ISO 12800/f2.8/1-sec. The reflections,
    foreground, and the sky were stitched together to get the final image. The aurora was moving so fast that a slower
    shutter speed would have blurred its magical shape.

    《魔界午夜》 ,加拿大育空山区。
    一个意外接到的电话。一次说走就走的旅行。15小时的飞机到达加拿大白马镇。直升机飞进育空山区。背负60磅的背包穿行于布满巨石的山坡。
    在北极圈附近的暴风雪中露营。在五彩斑斓的北极光下就寝 。而当午夜时分,漫天梦幻神奇的北极光在这全世界最偏远的壮美群山上空一次
    又一次爆发的时候,心里唯有震撼和兴奋。所有的幸苦,全都忘却于脑后。

    技术细节:这是一个在极其困难的光线条件下的极其复杂拍摄过程。总共是16张大光圈曝光,用来实现景深合成,多张平均降噪,还有上下拼图。






  16. "Graceful", Banff National Park,Canada

    《优雅》,加拿大班芙国家公园






  17. "Golden Lines", Death Valley National Park, California, USA.

    《金色线条》,美国加州死谷国家公园






  18. "The Legend",Fly Geyser, Nevada Desert, USA
    The glory of the spectacular dawn was a perfect match for one of the most beautiful and mystical geysers in the world.

    Created accidentally by well drilling many years ago, the Fly Geyser gradually grows to its current size and shape because
    of the deposition of minerals from the hot geothermal water. The brilliant colors of green and red are primarily due to
    thermophilic algae, which flourishes in moist, hot environments.

    Very few people are lucky enough to see this extraordinary wonder with their own eyes. Capturing her legendary beauty
    under such a splendid sky was really a once-in-a-life time experience.

    《绝世之美》,美国内华达州沙漠
    这大概是全世界最美丽,也是最神秘的喷泉。她藏身于美国内华达沙漠深处的一个私人牧场里,因为几十年前打井的时候意外
    碰到地下热泉而形成。五彩斑斓的矿物质以及嗜温苔藓给了她无穷无尽的微妙色彩。多年来她一直是一个神奇的传说,只有
    极少许幸运者能亲睹她的风貌。而能捕捉到在罕见的沙漠火烧云下映照下她的传奇般的倩影,更是一生一世难得的机遇。





  19. "Day Dreaming", Proxy Falls, Three Sisters Wilderness, Oregon, USA
    Soft and warm light from the setting Sun dapples the most spectacular waterfall of Oregon, creating splendid rainbows.
    I had to navigate the slippery and dangerous rocks, falling tree trucks and cold, rapid water, while fighting the spray of water,
    in order to chase the elusive rainbows and light patterns. Moving the camera position by mere one foot and the rainbow might
    disappear. The light conditions changed minute-by-minute. Each image captured was distinct and unique.
    《梦境》,美国俄勒冈州
    当最后的夕阳穿过密林,柔和地打在这翠绿山涧里美西北最壮丽的瀑布的时候,那些斑斑点点的阳光和彩虹,如同梦幻之境,让人陶醉。
    夕阳时分在这里拍摄,真正体会到了“追逐阳光”的含义。从密林缝隙中穿过的光束,位置每分钟都在变幻,而彩虹的位置,不仅取决于阳光,
    也和溅起的水雾的高低有关。我在地面的冰冷的激流和光滑乱石间来回穿梭,为的是抓住每一米最后的阳光和彩虹。瀑布飞溅的水珠如同
    雨点般飘来。每拍一张,我就得擦掉镜头上水珠。每一张都不同,每一张都不可能重复。





  20. "The Spell of Rising Moon", Yukon Territory, Canada
    The moon rose after midnight over the Tombstone range. The aurora borealis show was so strong
    that it drowned in bright moonlight on the sky.

    Technique Notes: This is a very complicated shot. Seven frames using 14mm/ISO 1600/f2.8/30-sec,
    captured consecutively within a few minutes, were used for focus-stacking so the resulting image is
    tack-sharp from near to far. The aurora was relatively static on the sky so I could use a slow (30 seconds) shutter speed to capture more light.


    《月之精灵》 ,加拿大育空山区。
    午夜时分,一轮明月悬挂于育空山区的墓碑山脉之际。夜空中灿烂的北极光在尽情地舞动。





  21. "Midnight Rendezvous", Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA
    In the midnight, an elegant white geyser suddenly erupted under the breathtakingly beautiful velvet sky full of stars.
    《午夜邂逅》,美国怀俄明州黄石国家公园
    午夜时分,黄石国家公园里的一个美丽喷泉在满天繁星下突然喷发。
    黄石国家公园拥有全世界最著名的地热景观和全世界大多数间歇泉,吸引了来自全世界的无数游客。可是,
    极少有人能有幸目睹璀璨星空下的温泉喷发。感谢小女陪我去荒郊看星空。半夜我们全家来到公园里一个
    偏远的角落。在荒寂的原野,四周寂静,只能听到温泉突突的声音。我们站在这个美丽的白色间歇泉前等
    待。午夜时分,在满天震撼人心的繁星之下,喷泉突然喷发,奔腾的水汽怒吼地直冲云霄。短短一分钟后,
    又回归平静,仿佛一切从没有发生。






  22. "Eternal Curves", Antelope Valley, Utah, USA
    I was probably the first person who came up with this innovative and creative composition
    in a location that had been shot millions of times. It was the finalist of 4th Annual

    《永恒曲线》,美国尤他州羚羊谷
    在一个被全世界摄影师拍摄了千万次的地方,我创意性地首先发现了这个全新的视角。

    只要摄影师努力,每个人依然可以拍出自己独特的风光。
    获2012年第7期《Nature Photographer's Online Magazine》 "Photo of the Month"和封面照片荣誉。
    被Apple公司选用作Macbook Pro广告

    《燃烧的魔戒》,美国亚利桑那州马蹄湾

  29. "Set Fire to the Sky", Mono Lake, California, USA
    A two minute night exposure captures a huge wild fire burning near Mono Lake, California. It was a bad news for the US Forest Service,
    but it provided a once-in-a-life time opportunity for landscape photographers to record an extremely unusual perspective of this iconic location.
    《火湖》,美国加州梦娜湖
    一场意外的森林大火给了摄影师一个千载难逢的机会,拍摄到一个极为特别的梦娜湖。





  30. "The Path of Stars", Crater Lake National Park, Oregon, USA
    The Magnificent Milky Way glows over the deepest and cleanest lake of USA.
    《繁星之路》,美国俄勒冈州火山口湖国家公园
    Crater Lake是火山口形成的湖泊,是美国最深的湖泊(约600米深),也是全世界最干净的湖泊。湖里的水全部来自雪水和雨水,没有
    河流带来的泥沙和污染。但这深似海洋的湖泊,偏偏又位于海拔2000米的高山顶上。五月中旬的山下已经是摄氏三十多度的酷暑夏日,
    但山上依然是白雪皑皑,大部分道路被数米厚的积雪覆盖,没法通行。为了探索拍摄角度,我只能在雪地里徒步跋涉。天黑之后,所有
    游客全部散去,停车场上只剩我一人。 午夜寂静时分,一个人在高山之巅独自享受这样的寂静的雪山,深邃的湖泊和璀璨的星空,感
    觉异常奇妙。

    High wind and raising tide bring huge waves crushing to the shore of Oregon coast.

    2015的新年凌晨,乌云开始散开,洁白纯净的新雪覆满了红色的峡谷和山峰。





  34. "Hidden Gem", Oregon, USA
    Punchbowl Falls is a real beauty hidden in the Columbia River Gorge
    《酒碗瀑布》,美国俄勒冈州
    一颗隐藏在翠绿的哥伦比亚河谷里的明珠。要拍摄到她必须在几小时的跋涉后,站在齐胸深的水中。

  37. "Lake Louise Winter Sunrise", Banff National Park,Canada
    A really, really cold morning (-38C) in the Canandian Rockies after a snow storm that lasted four days.
    The snow hung magically in the trees and on the mountains, turning everywhere the eyes could see to a winter wonderland.
    My tripod would not extend because of the cold temperature. The LCD screen of my cameras stopped working.
    However, the view in front of me was unforgettable.

    《路易斯湖冬季日出》,加拿大班芙国家公园
    一个极寒的清晨(零下-38C)里的美丽日出。四天暴风雪刚停,周围的一切都是银装素裹,如同仙境。

    《生命的线条》,加拿大洛基山
    远山上被大火烧焦的树干,在皑皑白雪的衬托下,如同一幅幅水墨山水画。 这些挺拔的线条,让我想起有一年金秋我在科罗拉多
    拍摄的《秋韵》里那些难忘的白桦树林的场景。它们一个热烈,一个冷峻。但都在讲述生命的故事,也都极具抽象之美。






  46. "Dancing With the Stars", Fly Geyser, Nevada Desert, USA

    like fairies dancing on the roof of an extravagant castle.

    Until now.

    《冷焰》 ,美国阿拉斯加州一个非常偏远的高山之上

    一个此星球上可能从没有任何一个人涉足过的地点。 一个让人见过后就永生难忘的美景。

  59. "Into Cold Darkness", Three Sisters Wilderness, Oregon, USA
    An beautiful snow cave hidden in the Three Sisters Wilderness, never discovered by anyone before. />
    《冰凘溶泄》,美国俄勒岗州三姐妹山区。
    在这个以前从未被人发现的雪洞里,融化的雪水奔流不息,洞顶更有流水潺潺滴落。

    大火卷起烟雾灰尘,直冲云天,形成罕见而壮观的的云霞。日落后西边天空的散射光,让一切景物都沐浴在温暖的色调里。





  62. "The Explorer", Arches National Park, Utah, USA

    《河水的轻唱》,美国犹他州锡安国家公园
    秋天是锡安峡谷最美的季节。寂静而壮丽的峡谷里,清澈的河水轻轻地流过鹅卵石覆盖的河床。棉白杨德叶子化为金黄,
    点缀着高耸的红色峭壁。






  68. "Star Trek", Death Valley National Park, California, USA
    In the middle of night in one of the most remote areas of American West, alone in the middle of the dry lake floor,
    I enjoyed the solitude of wilderness and witnessed the magnificent starry night and the famed "sailing rocks",
    which move across the dry lake-bed mystically, leaving long trails behind them.

    Death Valley’s night skies are among some of the darkest in the United States. It is so dark, that near the horizon
    on the south, you can very clearly see the orange-hued light pollution coming Los Angles, which is 200 miles away!
    You can see even stronger light pollution come from Las Vegas, which is 120 miles away, on the east. Under the long
    exposure of modern cameras, the midnight sky is unexpectedly filled with vivid orange/red colors, and everything on
    the ground is bathed in a faint, warm glow. The experience was very surreal.
    《星空作证》,美国加州死谷国家公园的“石头赛道”
    “石头赛道”是全世界最著名最奇特的地点之一。要来到这里也十分不易,要在颠簸的乱石路上开几个小时的车,而满地尖锐的
    碎石随时可能划破车胎。在这极其平坦的干湖床上,星罗棋布般散落着很多石头。龟裂的泥地上留下了它们悠长的凝固轨迹。
    近百年虽然有众多猜测,但从来没有人能证实这些重达几十甚至几百千克的石块为什么会自己在湖床上神秘地移动。直到两年前,
    科学家才第一次观测到它们移动的原因。 原来冬天的湖床上偶然有非常浅的积水, 在寒冷的冬夜,会结起薄冰。在白天的阳光
    照射下,冰面开始融化并破裂 。在风的吹动下,这些大面积冰块在湖面上移动,带动散落的石块滑过湖床的表面,并在泥土上
    留下长长的轨迹。

    在这个美国西部最遥远荒寂的角落之一,深夜我独自徘徊在干枯的湖床上,周围没有任何人类活动的痕迹。和我作伴的惟有璀璨
