Road Trip to Oregon
Long Exposure Light Painting. + Trip to see Fall Foliage.
You can learn to paint using longer exposures such as 1/4 second and try to move the camera why it is exposing. Doing so allows you to paint with whatever object that is lite on the viewfinder. Granted that you choose a good setting and you can get long exposure, its quite fun. 🙂
Recently, I went on a trip in which I had wanted to go for years. Tibet was not a place that was easily accessible. While planning was fairly complicated due to inconsistencies of ticket prices and scarcity of transportation in and out of the region, the trip itself was fairly smooth. However, Tibet is a plateau region in southwest china and well above the sea level with an average elevation of 4,900 meters (16,000 ft). It is easy for first time travelers to such altitudes to get high-altitude sickness. Climbing 2 flight of stairs feels like climbing 10 as air is thinner and your heart has to work harder to provide more oxygen to the brain. In short, if you ever lived through college, you know how hangovers and shortness of breath feel like. It’s on par with the worst one you’ve ever experienced, but you learn to deal with things like this.
