Hani woman with a heavy load.  Taken at a construction site in Yuanyang Province (just north of the South China border with Vietnam).  Much of the work of all types in this area is done by hand. Women from the Hani minority were hauling wicker baskets full of sand and rock up some crude stairs in the early morning light.  The grey concrete make a perfect neutral grey background.  I'm back after spending a couple of weeks photographing the ethnic peoples of Guizhou and Yunnan provinces in Southern China. Terrible internet connections in China with many sites completely embargoed (including Google, gmail, UTube, Facebook, Twitter plus many others even in major hotels in major cities), so no point even trying to post or comment.    Thank you all, and especially Rick Willis for helping to keep my photos 'alive' during the past 2 weeks during my absence!  I'm posting a couple of 'sneak preview' photos today to provide a taste for what I've been photographing.
Woman walking across flooded rice paddies at sunrise    The Honghe Hani rice terraces are a recently designated UNESCO World Heritage site in the south of Yunnan province, China (just north of the border with Vietnam).  They cascade down the Ailao mountains to the banks of the Hong River and have been in constant cultivation for the last 1300 years.  They are truly marvellous to see and photograph.
Immature Peregrine Falcon - from a series I took in December. Underexposed and bit noisy but I like the POV and the ambient light on the eye. Taken near Olympia, Wa.  I really appreciate the comments!
28.01.15 - Saturn Rising  Another "under alien skies" composite inspired by the guys at Roscosmos who produced some stunning images recently. If you want to try one of these there are lots of free wallpapers out there of planets or sci-fi skyscapes, the possibilities are endless really. I find the hardest thing is to match the sky colours, and a misty scene helps with the blending  I have a small gallery of these here; http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/Photography/UNDER-ALIEN-SKIES/47186401_qW6hrD#!i=3846553564&k=vjB8JWT

1/29/15 - Snowstorm in Colorado Springs, better in the largest size. I find snowstorms challenging to capture well, so I take a lot of shots when I have the opportunity.  I was pleased with this one.  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the weed seedheads in the light.
