Crater Lake National Park, Oregon was the last stop of our recent 10-day Oregon photo tour. The first outing was to take the sunrise photos on the very next day upon our arrival. Since our hotel was 40 minute drive away, we had to get […]
We were extremely lucky to see the magical sun rays came through the redwood forest in the foggy morning as we drove on Redwood Highway 101. We must have stopped on the roadside for more than half an hour to appreciate and photograph the beauty […]

I went back to Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens yesterday (2019.6.29). Thousands of lotuses are blooming in peak conditions and are simply gorgeous. Hope they will last for at least two more week when the Annual Lotus Festival will be held.
