Sunrise in Heaven - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

By now, I hope you've all met the beautiful red fox that we had the fortune to meet by Lake Kussharo.  As if the encounter with her was not enough, our streak of luck continued. 

Lake Kussharo is a caldera lake in eastern Hokkaido.  It is the largest lake in Japan to completely freeze over in winter.  When we arrived the day before, the lake water was dark and choppy. However, later that day, it started snowing and the temperature dropped.  We took a risk and drove over before sunrise the next morning and was greeted by an amazing scenery.

It was so cold that the steam from my breath froze on the screen of my camera.  But I was totally immersed in the beauty of the pink glow, frost flowers on ice, mist arising from the surface of the water and the reflection of the snow covered mountain.

Sunrise at Venice, Italy - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

I'm not a sunrise photographer and I think I've made it pretty clear before.  However, I'm willing to make exceptions from time to time.  

In Venice, Italy, photographing sunrise means not only getting up early, but also extra early to catch the water taxi in darkness.  However, when the city on water, especially its windows, catches fire from the morning glow, all efforts that went into waking up with the city seemed more than worth it.

Happy Valentine's Day - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

The northwestern Iceland has always been noted for its horsemanship.  But having a herd of Icelandic horses waking up to the first ray of daylight right out of our bedroom sliding door was more than what I could ask for.  In Hvammstangi, I got to meet some characters, including these two.  What do you think they were talking about?  

Maybe, something like this:


"Do you like the flowers?"
"Yes, they are delicious."

Haha, this Valentine's Day, don't make him/her mad, make him madly in love! :-)


Leave your caption below in the Facebook comment box.  The best answer will be rewarded with something of these two horses. :-)
