American Southwest Day 3: Milky Way at the Balanced Rock 平衡石銀河攝影

National Parks in Utah offer some of the darkest skies in the United States. On a clear, moonless night, it’s easy to see the Milky Way with naked eyes. Thousands of natural sandstone arches provide the perfect foreground for night photography, making the Arches National Park one of the best night photography spots.

猶他州的國家公園是美國境內數一數二最黑的天空,沒有月亮又晴朗的晚上,用肉眼就可以看到銀河,天然砂岩拱門又是超好前景,拱門國家公園真的很好拍銀河。

When I travel to a new place, I always look for good food, cool architecture, and places to shoot. One of the evenings during our trip in Osaka had all the boxes checked. We visited a very Instagrammable bookstore during the blue hour right after sunset. Then we wrapped up the day with a bowl of foamy citrus-infused ramen that was incredible.

Osaka Must-Do: Chilling out at Riverside Coffee Shops in Kitahama 大阪北濱悠哉水岸咖啡

Kitahama seems to be an under-rated travel spot in Osaka. Riverside coffee shops with outdoor seating offer a fantastic view. This is a great place to get your coffee fix, enjoy brunch, or spend a lazy afternoon.

台灣旅遊資訊還算容易找到北濱的咖啡店,但以英文旅遊資訊來說,北濱真是被埋沒了,在北濱中之島河畔的咖啡館坐了一陣子,覺得這真是大阪必排行程!適合特別安排來喝咖啡聊是非、享受早午餐、或者悠哉浪費人生一個下午。
