Welcome to my little photography niche! As you may notice, the name is 'The Echo of Nature'. Over the years, I have been increasingly amazed by how nature is constantly shaping our planet Earth. Mountains, oceans, canyons, tundra, and all those marvelous creatures that evolve and adapt in changing environments. Being an engineer studying biologically inspired technologies offers me opportunities to probe into those incredible natural designs at both macro and microscopic levels. Hope you enjoy the photos and find a moment of serenity, some of which are exclusively licensed by Getty Images, Visual China Group, and 500px. I will try to update the gallery on a non-regular basis. :)

Oil spheres floating on the surface of water with casually arranged blue backdrop lighting. This is a fairly basic and simple but also incredibly stunning macrophotography attempt. PS: Oil used is normal corn oil from Costco, water is just tap water in a glass kitchen bowl, and the light is an LED panel covered with several layers of kitchen towel. :D

Sunrise moment - a portrait version. Not sure about the biological name/classification of these wild plants. They look no more than bland, when compared to thorny cacti and hysterical Joshua trees. The Mojave Desert is usually known for its dryness and harshness, but, at least, some plants can thrive here.
