Beijing Sunshine

    Newer Older

    I recently spent 2 weeks in Beijing, China with the idea in mind to see many things and hopefully get some good images. It seems that I caught the flu shortly after arriving there and it really hampered my plans. I had planned on going to the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square as well as the Zoo. As it turned out, I managed to get to the Zoo before coming down with what I believe was airborne in my flight of 14 hours from Detroit to Beijing. I ran a fever for 5 days in the middle of the trip and it robbed me of many of my plans. I must say, that even though I spent a few days ill, I really enjoyed the trip and what I got to see.. It is hard to believe that the population of Beijing is 19.5 million people - more than 2.5 times that of NYC. Amazing place!!
    Do keep in mind the air quality in Beijing is terrible and even thought there wasn't a cloud in the sky, all images are shot in real overcast conditions..
    So I will be sharing with you some of my zoo shots in the next few days. Please don't feel obligated to comment as I am very busy and it is unlikely that I will have the time to return your visit and comment.. However, if you like what you see, feel free to drop a "fave" on it so I know who has been here..
    I hope you enjoy and thanks for your visits, comments and faves.. They are always appreciated, even after 5 years out here in Flickrland...

    This is the sun in Beijing on a calm day without a cloud in the sky... terrific air quality.

      Wow, that's a very cool looking sun Steve! I'm sorry to hear that you were not feeling well on your vacation, it's always a little extra rougher when you are away from home.

      Cool shot - that's some nasty atmosphere they have going on there - kind of like what England must have had during the Victorian times ( except without the sunshine, and more rain lol )

      Pretty gross place to breath. How sad for the inhabitats! Asthma city. Amazing what the camera captured here.

      It is an amazing image really, Jared... Like a famous man once said, put the camera in the right hands and you can produce extremely nice images... :)
