I took these photos in the northwest part of China. I am a high school senior in China who was born in the United States, and current Director of my school’s Digital Video Club. Since picking up a camera at ten years old, I have become passionate about using photography to record memories for the future. Wherever I go, I have my camera on hand.
When I saw this crystal-blue sky, I was so impressed at first sight that I had to capture the amazing sight of the snowy mountains against the sky. At the time, I was traveling in Tibet. I felt the distinctive culture, full of factors extracted from Buddhism. People in Tibet wore traditional clothes and silver ornaments on their heads; their attitudes were open and full of willingness to help a tourist like myself. After viewing the lively street and appreciating the grandiose architecture, I felt I could understand the spirit of the land. Standing under the mountain, feeling the winds carrying the scent of soil, I felt calm and relieved.
