Happy Memories by *SteTheStampede
This is my friends daughter, Elizabeth. She’s a little sweet heart and a few months ago we all went on a camping trip to Bala, Wales. Whilst we were there Laura, her mum, bought little Elizabeth an ice-cream. She looked so happy with herself that I couldn’t resist getting a snap of the moment.

The Arch by *SteTheStampede
Part way down the river at that cuts across the bottom of Xianning Dong Lu there was an area of land you could, if you were sneaky, jump across too, which I did. From that small man-made island I managed to get this shot. I really like the lighting in this image and the vibrancy of colours, but my favourite thing about it is the reflection of the archway in the water.

Nature Reclaims All by *SteTheStampede
I took this photograph when walking around  华清池 - Hauqingchi (Hauqing Hot Springs). I really love how a part of the building was being slowly eaten by ivy - and more so how in this shot, it looks like nature is reclaiming the land again. 
Haunqingchi is a truly magical place to walk around, if you ever find yourself in Xi’An, China, I recommend taking the bus to visit it. 
This photograph on the most part is completely un-edited, I had to do some colour correction due to the smog of Xi’An, but otherwise it’s un edited.

A Peaceful Place by *SteTheStampede
During the last week of my stay in Xi’an, I visited the 华清池 - Hauqingchi (Hauqing Hot Springs)
It’s an incredibly old and important hot springs in Xi’an, most recently being the location of the Xi’an Incident (google it if you’ve never heard of it)

Another shot I got on my walk along the river by Chanhe Xi Lu, Xi’An. I don’t know what they were doing, but there was something beautiful about the moment that I wanted to try and capture.Taken with my Nikon D3000. Minor white-balance correction done in Aperture.

Lights Will Guide You Home by *SteTheStampede


Got this shot while I was sat drinking a coffee in Starbucks at the Parkson Mall, Xi’an - which was handy as it was 20 minute walk from my apartment.Anyway while not one of my favourite pictures, it was one of my first and I really like the colours that came out in the lights as well as the spikey-ness of the street lights.

This is a picture I got of my friend Yanzi one afternoon when her, myself and Steven (my friend and her boyfriend) went for Ice-Cream. She was eating her way through an Ice-cream Sunday when I snapped this picture of her, I’m really pleased with the way it turned out as she looks incredibly happy.The only editing I have done to this picture was a slight cropping and changed the red curve of the image to give it that pink hue.
