This week I am sharing two photos taken one year ago in China. When I tried to geo-tag these photos, I realized that Google map could not search coordinates in China. Had to use the Chinese copy Baidu map.

The storm on Christmas Eve led to landslides and closure of major roads and trails on Christmas day. Luckily I already captured the scene I wanted to the day before. Plus, I got to go back to Cades Cove and see the beautiful raining look.

Elks were the only wildlife I found in my visit to Cades Cove, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It was not too difficult to get close to take photos.

A full spectrum converted camera is very fun. Mine is my good old Sony NEX-5n. With an IR filter, you can get pure infrared photos; just like these two weekly photos. Without an IR filter, you can get unbelievable black and white photos with huge dynamic range.

Conversion is not too difficult. I DIYed it. Just disassemble the camera, get rid of the blue IR filter in front of the sensor. That's it. I may convert my shelve setting Sony a7r some day.
