Baishi Mountain is located in Taiyuan county, west region of China's Hebei province. Its main ridge line is over 7,000 meters long and the highest peak is 2,096 meters high. The fog at high altitudes make the mountain a fairyland on Earth.

During my Honeymoon I woke up before the sunrise and went out for a walk. This picture describes what every sunrise was like in French Polynesia. The water by the first hut is only 3 feet deep, and by the furthest hut is about 4 feet deep.
If you ever have the opportunity to go, make sure you have your camera by your side at all times. I ended up with over 1450 pictures during my two week stay. This is one of my favorites.

Angel's landing is one of Zion National Park's most famous hikes. This photo was taken off-trail and you can see in the bottom right corner, the path leading to the Virgin River valley below. Down center is the road where the bus shuttle drives. It is only authorized vehicle in the park past its lodge. It is an amazing park to visit, only a two-hour drive from Las Vegas, Nevada.

The graceful, winding arms of the majestic spiral galaxy M51 (NGC 5194) appear like a grand spiral staircase sweeping through space. They are actually long lanes of stars and gas laced with dust.
This sharpest-ever image of the Whirlpool Galaxy, taken in January 2005 with the Advanced Camera for Surveys aboard NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, illustrates a spiral galaxy's grand design, from its curving spiral arms, where young stars reside, to its yellowish central core, a home of older stars. The galaxy is nicknamed the Whirlpool because of its swirling structure.
The Whirlpool's most striking feature is its two curving arms, a hallmark of so-called grand-design spiral galaxies. Many spiral galaxies possess numerous, loosely shaped arms which make their spiral structure less pronounced. These arms serve an important purpose in spiral galaxies. They are star-formation factories, compressing hydrogen gas and creating clusters of new stars. In the Whirlpool, the assembly line begins with the dark clouds of gas on the inner edge, then moves to bright pink star-forming regions, and ends with the brilliant blue star clusters along the outer edge.
Some astronomers believe that the Whirlpool's arms are so prominent because of the effects of a close encounter with NGC 5195, the small, yellowish galaxy at the outermost tip of one of the Whirlpool's arms. At first glance, the compact galaxy appears to be tugging on the arm. Hubble's clear view, however, shows that NGC 5195 is passing behind the Whirlpool. The small galaxy has been gliding past the Whirlpool for hundreds of millions of years.
As NGC 5195 drifts by, its gravitational muscle pumps up waves within the Whirlpool's pancake-shaped disk. The waves are like ripples in a pond generated when a rock is thrown in the water. When the waves pass through orbiting gas clouds within the disk, they squeeze the gaseous material along each arm's inner edge. The dark dusty material looks like gathering storm clouds. These dense clouds collapse, creating a wake of star birth, as seen in the bright pink star-forming regions. The largest stars eventually sweep away the dusty cocoons with a torrent of radiation, hurricane-like stellar winds, and shock waves from supernova blasts. Bright blue star clusters emerge from the mayhem, illuminating the Whirlpool's arms like city streetlights.
The Whirlpool is one of astronomy's galactic darlings. Located 31 million light-years away in the constellation Canes Venatici (the Hunting Dogs), the Whirlpool's beautiful face-on view and closeness to Earth allow astronomers to study a classic spiral galaxy's structure and star-forming processes.

Lightning over the Grand Canyon. I took this photo on the north rim of the Grand Canyon near Bright Angel Point looking south-east across the canyon.
A large thunderstorm rolled through and I was shooting 10-30 second exposures.
This photo has not been modified with the exception of some noise smoothing. The colors and other aspects of the photo are as they were captured.

Klöntalersee is a natural lake in the Canton of Glarus, Switzerland. Since 1908, it has been used as a reservoir for electricity production. The dam's construction substantially increased the lake's volume.
This is certainly one of my favorite lakes in Switzerland!

Taken from the 102nd floor observation deck of the Empire State Building. We're looking South over Downtown. In the back you can see the new One World Trade Center that almost looks finished. Opening will be in 2015. About five minutes later, the city was completely covered in clouds.
