Soul Searching in Tibet

Step, count to 10, step, step, step, count to 10, and repeat! This recurring mantra fills my every thought as I ascend the formidable Langma La, a high pass that guards the entrance to the Kharta Valley on the east side of Mount Everest. At 5360m/17,585 feet you reach a series of rock cairns mostly hidden [...]

By | 2016-12-07T17:06:16+00:00 September 3rd, 2016|Blog, Reviews|

Having been very impressed with the Nisi V5 Holder and the ND filters I reviewed last month, I was understandably excited to get my hands on the big brother system - specifically designed for use with the flagship Nikon 14-24 f2.8 lens. I've owned this lens since 2007 and it's incredible sharpness and potential [...]

Most people are familiar with the term pre-visualization, and many consider it to be the holy grail of mastering the art of photography. The concept, in short, is to somehow imagine the final image in your mind before you have even taken it. The term itself is attributed [...]

石头的故事

By | 2016-12-07T17:06:17+00:00 December 11th, 2011|Chinese|

让我做一次海岸边的无名石, 浪潮不断塑造我的形状, 并将我带到地球上不同的角落, 光与水暗中描绘我身上斑斓的色彩, 让我的生命也有着一刹那的灿烂, 直到潮汐不断削弱我的身体和意志, 最后将化做无数粒心碎的海沙在风中起舞。 无 名 石 曾几何时, 相知却无声。 光于影之间,心有灵犀, 当潮水再次涌来,别离之痛, 藏记忆于风中, 曾几何时…… 回忆如此悠久,我不记得 我来自哪里 从夏季的暴风雨中脱离于悬崖是最初的开始 然后无数次从原始体分离, 就这样一次次重生洗去过去的痕迹 日复一日,年复一年 海浪周期的程序把我带到那些不知名的角落 在汹涌澎湃的潮水间忍受翻滚的折磨 黑暗的洞穴里经历着孤独的沉默 一切揭示世间有始有终的真理 无论似“苦”似“甜” 意识与潜意识下 合并可知与不可知的意愿 去探索一个不平凡的世界

神圣的西藏雪山

神圣 的 西藏 雪山 母亲给予我 生命 神山赐予我 灵魂 很久以前 在她的壮丽容颜前 一望无际的蓝天下 那一刻,我感受到内心最深刻的平静 我离开了,重新认知了爱的意义 然后,我再次回到 同一片一望无际的蓝天下 她的容颜美丽依旧却映衬着忧伤的阴影 我的心感受到无法言语的悲痛 我离开了,重新认知了痛苦的意义 直到今天我仍然没有返回的勇气 也许只有一颗真正超脱的心 超越自己和时光的境界,让我回到她的身边 在云上,在云中,在云下, 我的灵魂在她的身边释放, 快乐着,痛苦着 阳光里,月光中, 我重新认知了自由的意义, 原来离去更需要勇气, 珠穆朗玛 我停留于离你最近的远处 夕阳的余晖下你神圣的面容带着妩媚 痴迷的我在月光慢慢向你接近 今夜的秋风也反常的宁静 绒布河谷边的我还是不善言语 [...]
