“I used to think the top global environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that with 30 years of good science we could address these problems. But I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a spiritual and cultural transformation, and we scientists don’t know how to do that.” (James Gustave Speth)
Back to Hollenbeck (again)
A few days ago my friend Kevin and I went for a hike at Hollenbeck Canyon, where I hadn’t been in quite a while. The creek that flows in the canyon doesn’t always run and after the recent rains, I was hoping to make a photo of it as the water is making its way through some rocks, that sort of thing.
Video: Foggy Bamboo Forest
While going through the photos from Taiwan for yesterday’s monthly “throwback” post, I inevitably saw a couple of unedited photos that I liked enough to work on them and in this particular one, it was possible to show a few useful techniques in a very simple photograph, so I recorded a video of the process.
March 2013 Throwback (Taiwan Edition)
This month’s throwback to ten-years-ago contains photos from my first trip to Taiwan, in March 2013 (who would’ve thought?!). We spent 2 1/2 weeks or so visiting Shuwen’s family, met some of her friends, and visited many really, really beautiful places, primarily in the interior part of Taiwan, Nantou County, where the higher elevation’s cooler temperatures are a refuge from the stifling humidity of the lowlands. Sunny days on the forest trails would abruptly be ended by dense fog, which was quite a treat, of course.

Results Are Uncertain
