Shooting a timelapse sequence at the moment on the Hailuogou glacier, on the Tibetan Plateau. Seems like a good time to post a photo while I wait for the sequence to finish. Amazing view.

Stay tuned… here.
27.06.12 – I decided to upgrade my camera this week and plumped for the new Canon 5D mark III. Excited to start putting it through its paces on a new trip in the south of China next week.
One other thing that might come in handy is what’s in the blue bag. When you buy camera equipment in China, they often like to throw in some freebies to sweeten the deal. Today, I was offered a Canon branded tent to go with my new camera. As ever with China, a slightly odd experience.
Do I need the tent? Erm…not really. But, everybody loves a freebie, right?! If you’re interested in taking it off my hands, drop me a line!
17.06.12 – Assignment today took me to the north-eastern outskirts of Beijing to visit one of the city’s oddest attractions, ‘Wonderland’, an abandoned theme park.
The park was left deserted when construction funding dried up, leading to the half-finished park being left to the advancing shrubbery which is now slowly taking back the land.
The highlight of the park is a Disney style castle which towers above what is now mostly farmland. It’s a bizarre but interesting place which is well worth a brief visit.
More to come on this when the work is published…
16.06.12 – It’s easy to get jaded with Beijing’s air quality. Sometimes though, we get a clear day and you suddenly remember how nice the capital can actually be.
This is the north-east tower of the Forbidden City this evening. A sunset and view worth waiting for.
If only it could be like this more often…
