A Night at Tea-Horse Guesthouse

Jeff overlooking the void

During dinner and breakfast I set up the GH2 to record the sunset and sunrise. Not that we saw either, on account of the cloudy weather and the towering mountains. Still the clouds made for an interesting and sometimes intimidating view.

In Lost on Planet China, Maartin Troost describes the Tiger Leaping Gorge mountains as (I’m paraphrasing from memory here) neither pristine, snow-capped Alps, nor “Let’s have a Bud Light” Rockies, but fearsome, foreboding giants. I couldn’t envision what he was talking about until I saw it for myself.

  1. I love your ability to pick such great soundtracks for your great little videos!

  2. Jason and I actually used Sibelius in our very first film: The Legend of My Seven Dinners with Bambi the Duck.
