The mid-morning light was just "right" here as I drove into the park one recent October. Quickly parked and set up the tripod by this roadside forest scene.
The Summer Palace, Beijing. One of the best places in China to watch the sun setting behind the Fragrant Hills. The colors of the sky reflecting on the serene lake gives the surrealistic feeling.
We stumbled up this small gravel road that meandered through the foggy forest. It ended being one of the best 7 miles of solitude and interesting photography discoveries within the park.
This was taken just after the reds and oranges of the morning sunrise had passed. I had a few moments of this beautiful slate blue grey light, and windless reflection. It was my first visit to this spot, it won't be my last.
A romantic bench.. in the middle of blooming flowers.. colors of life around.. fragrance in the air.. love in my heart.. A sweet smile on my lips.. I have found my heaven!

The longest waterfall on earth. Bring wide-angle and telephoto for wildlife! A graduated neutral density filter could be helpful too. While the park open at sunrise only, I ask a ranger to escort me to this spot to shoot the break of the day. These...

At last melting snow in May brings water to Navajoland, a welcome sight!
After an hour of hiking around Watson Lake I found nature at it's best. I sat down and enjoyed the serenity of the calm lake. I've never seen Watson Lake so beautiful until this day and it was a perfect morning for breathe-taking photo safari.

I discovered this old school house while out on a drive. I loved the yellow wild flowers and old pumphouse. I didn't like the way it looked so I played with it till I came up with this.
