Photo by @iantehphotography | My taxi driver during my stay in Linfen, also known as China's coal-capital in 2007, was an ex-coal miner. He would tell me stories about the dangers of the job, worrying everyday if he'd make it back aboveground after a hard day's work in the mines. He wasn't exaggerating, because at that time 80% of the world's coal mining accidents were in China. He took me to his old workplace, and while he caught up with his boss, I was allowed to explore. I walked down past the entrance to the colliery and waited in the dark until I heard footsteps of miners approaching. They were surprised when they saw me—a man in civilian clothes with a pair of cameras. I asked to take their portraits, but I'd need their help in the dark. Moving various workers around my chosen subject, I asked them to shine their head torches directly at their friend as I took this picture of him. They were delighted. After the shot I could hear them chattering excitedly as they continued deep into the dark for another day's work on the coal seams. #coal #mining #climatechange

Handmade Ramen Noodles | Photograph by Peng Zhang (@yummytimephoto)
#YourShotPhotographer Peng Zhang photographed a chef making traditional handmade ramen noodles. “By continuously pulling and shaking,” writes Zhang, “he made up the long and silky noodles from a dough.”

In awe of Mother Nature at dawn - Cordillera Huayhuash, Peru.⁠
Doing the Huayhuash Trek (Cordillera Huayhuash in Peru) had been a dream of ours for 10 years. Although our expectations were high, the reality of our experience far exceeded them: eight high mountain pass crossings, surrounding peaks of 6,000+ meters (20,000+ feet), turquoise alpine lakes, stunning glacier-covered mountains, and a diversity of landscapes. Each day felt like a different experience, a new discovery. After answering endless questions about planning, organizing and preparing for the trek, it’s time we share it all in our Huayhuash Trekking Guide (link in bio)⁠
Since the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu often get all the tourist and adventure travel ink in Peru, many people have never heard of the Cordillera Huayhuash. However, this small sub-range of the Peruvian Andes packs a huge punch for its size. Although only 30km long, it includes six peaks over 6,000 meters (20,000 ft.) and features spectacular panoramic views of scores of high snow-covered peaks from different perspectives.⁠
This view was the beginning of Day 4 of our trek, at our campsite on the shores of Lake Carhuacocha. Before dawn, our trekking guide woke us and enticed us out of our warm sleeping bags with cups of steaming hot coca tea. We scampered up a hill just above the lake and waited for the the sun to emerge behind us and shine a light on these 5,500 - 6,600+ meter / (18,000-21,650 foot) snow-covered peaks you see here.⁠
As much as I wanted to capture the “perfect” shot, I reminded myself to put down my phone and camera to just enjoy the moment - the shadows, the light moving across the glaciers and peaks as the sun rose higher in the sky, the changing colors from orange to pink, and the subtle movements of reflections on the surface of the lake. .
Most of all, I remember a stillness, sense of awe and feeling of peace. This is the Cordillera Huayhuash. .
