Portrait of a Colonial Woman
Morning is the best time to visit Colonial Williamsburg, if you want to shoot portraits of the interpreters. The light is soft and most of the visitors haven't arrived yet. It's possible to really enjoy a chat and shoot some great shots.

The Yuan Yang Rice Terraces in Yunnan Province, China, at sunset. These terraces were hand carved out of the side of the mountain over thousands of years. Because of the cooler winters, only one rice crop is grown each year. You can see the new bright green rice plants in a few of the ponds. The rest are filled with water and reflecting the sunset. Soon, the rice plants will be planted in all of the ponds. These rice terraces are located about fifteen miles north of Vietnam.
