Streams, Geysers, and Waterfalls





  1. "Patagonia Sky", Patagonian, Los Glaciares National Park, Argentina.

    《巴塔哥尼亚的天空》,巴塔哥尼亚,阿根廷冰川国家公园








  2. "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。





  3. "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。





  4. "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。





  5. "Moonrise", Columbia Plateau, Washington, USA
    《月升》,美国俄勒冈州
    史前地球上最惨烈的岩浆喷发和难以想象的滔天洪水造就了如此雄伟的峡谷。而当一轮明月再次
    升起在这片神奇的土地之上的时候,古老的月光却为这样的蛮荒场景增添了一丝柔美。





  6. "Enchanted Springs", Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee, USA
    《雾中溪流》,美国北卡州大烟山国家公园





  7. "Spring Creek", Great Smoky Mountains National Park, North Carolina, USA
    《春溪》,美国北卡州大烟山国家公园
    流水,流水,大烟山国家公园里到处可见潺潺流水。 五月山中的清晨,空气中依然有点寒意。为了最好的构图,我站在流水中,咬紧牙关,忍受那溪水刺骨的清凉。





  8. "Cascade", Oregon, USA
    Water cascades over a lava-formed cliff in Central Cascade Mountains of Oregon.
    《顺流而下》,美国俄勒冈州
    瀑布旁的激流,在如台阶般的火山石上流淌。

  10. "Winter Morning Rush", Zion National Park, Utah, USA
    The Three Patriarchs soar over the rushing Virgin river on a pristine winter morning.
    《清晨的激流》,美国犹他州锡安国家公园

    Water flows at a very high speed through this very narrow crack on red sandstone in the remote back
    country of Zion National Park.

    举世闻名的哥伦比亚河谷内,隐藏着许许多多美丽壮观的瀑布。





  16. "The Wall Street", Zion National Park, Utah, USA
    The legendary Zion Narrows is a narrow slot canyon carved out by the Virgin River, with majestic walls sometimes
    only 20-30 feet apart and a thousand feet tall on both sides. Sunshine barely reaches the bottom of the canyon.
    Instead, warm sunlight bounces between the impossibly high red walls, creating incredibly beautiful glow. The most
    dramatic section of Narrows is known as “Wall Street”, where the sheer vertical walls soar to 1500 feet.
    Can you see two tiny hikers at the bottom of the walls?
    《华尔街》,美国犹他州锡安国家公园
    处女河水流淌了千万年,切割出传奇的锡安峡谷。 峡谷两边是千尺高耸峭壁,而最窄处只有十几米宽。阳光极少能照到谷底。
    温暖的光线在宏伟壮丽的岩壁间来水反射,让整个峡谷充满了美轮美奂的光影。锡安峡谷的最精华部分被称为“华尔街",
    这里的岩壁更高,更陡峭。 您能分辨出照片中峡谷底部两个徒步探险者吗?





  17. "The Melody Of River", Zion National Park, Utah, USA
    Fall is the most beautiful season inside Zion Narrows. In the silence of the majestic canyon, cold, clear water of the
    Virgin River whispers gently over the boulder-filled riverbed. Golden cottonwoods decorate the rusted steep stone walls.
    《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。
