Vulcan Baru

Vulcan Baru is the largest mountain in Panama. It sits at 3,474m (11,398 ft) above sea level. I hiked up and back in a day. The sunrise is spectacular. I got a chance to see the Caribbean and the Pacific Oceans at the same time for the top.

On the top of the volcano sits this cross. To me it was a reminder that every day is a gift that is given to us and we should treat each day as it is our last.

Waters Recede

In January 2016 there were two floods across the Jellat Jellat Flats when the Bega River burst its banks. I took this photo two weeks after. It takes a long time for it to recede. As the water recedes, it leaves the land brown. The water that is now left will evaporate.

Longsheng Rice Terraces

The rice terraces in Longsheng were amazing. I traveled up the chair lift through the cloud. The landscape changed at it came into view amongst the cloud. At the top of the rice terrace, I got the experience the moving clouds and the mystery of the terraces. I was up the top of the rice terrace for about an hour and there was always clouds around the mountains. This is one of the shots I got before the cloud came in and covered the rice terrace and mountains.

Mountains of Li River

I spent a day traveling along the Li River between Guilin and Yangshuo. The day was raining. Most of the mountains were hidden by the low lying cloud. The day wasn’t going to be the best for a boat cruise. It turned out really well though. The low clouds created a mystery and added drama. This is one of the many photos I took between the rain. Most of the time I hid in a corner on the boat trying my best to dodge the rain and keep my camera dry. I did learn that a shopping bag is a goo way to stop the rain. There were not plastic bags in my bag that day. Continue reading “Mountains of Li River”
