So we're currently in Copper Mountain, Colorado, enjoying the sun and snow. First day on the slopes and there wasn't a cloud in sight, which is not a bad way to start a ski holiday - here with my cousins so was out there giving lessons his morning. Hopefully the snow arrives in a couple days so we can enjoy deep powder - get the all important powder ski photos.

Before I headed west from Hong Kong to the UK I stopped by the Jade Market. I was sent on an errand by my Mum to pick up a bunch of jewellery. She's started a small jewellery business over in the UK - seems to be doing OK and she's enjoying herself too.

The Jade Market is in a small building underneath a flyover in the depths of Kowloon, however there are hundreds of small stalls within this tiny space. I was looking for stall 346 but as I soon found out the stalls were not lined up in numerical order - spent ages searching for mine!

I figured this was a golden opportunity for photos so I brought along my camera and spent a sometime afterwards milling around and snapping away. For this one I got down to 'tray level' and increased the aperture to create a small depth of focus. I thought this would really bring out the colour of these rings. Hope you like it.
