The Photo of 10,000 Cuts, above Guangxi Mountains

Here's a photo from last night, high atop one of the many conical mountains that are in this tight little region of southern China.  To get to this spot, it was very difficult! It was a completely unmarked path, and often not a path at all. I was bleeding from about six different spots just to get climb up here.  The rocks are razor-sharp, and you have to use all four of your appendages to Smeagol up many of the bits!  But once I was up here, the view was absolutely magnificent.  

The hardest bit might have been coming down.  Of course I was up here with +Tom Anderson  , and we always stay in these places too late.  It was pitch black, and the way down was very muddy and slippery.  I think we fell down about 5 times each-- and a lot of sliding down mudbanks in our shorts...  and it was sooooo humid... just dripping, muddy, and miserable... but we had a feeling that the shot would turn out well!

Love the look of this.
There's a surprising number of surprises at the Geneva motor show this year. One of which is this picture of the next Jaguar. They've also revealed the name: XE. A rival to the BMW 3 Series, if this single image they revealed is representative of the whole, it looks to be a stunner.

Say hello to the brand-new, just revealed, BMW 3 Series. Based on the 4 Series Coupe, this new 3 Series is the more practical version of that car, with an extra set of doors if you're into that practicality thing. It also has a large boot, with a 4 Series badge on it... wait, what? Oh, my bad.

+Eric Hansen Very true. But I suppose if it works, can you really blame the car companies?

If there's one really obvious characteristic of an electric car, it's probably the distinct lack of sound in motion. However, that poses a question... how do you attract attention, and let the world know you've just bought a super little electric car, whilst driving? The answer - at least, ...

Today we’re excited to announce that Audi, GM, Google, Honda, Hyundai and NVIDIA have teamed up to form the Open Automotive Alliance (OAA), a global partnership committed to bringing Android to cars starting in 2014. Learn more about the OAA at www.openautoalliance.net

Plenty of reviews of the new Mercedes S-Class, quite naturally, pit it against rivals like the Range Rover, the Audi A8, the Bentley Flying Spur, and so on. Auto Express, however, have decided that the most obvious rival for the S-Class (or, more specifically, the S63 AMG version), ...

CERN, just outside Geneva, is the location of the Large Hadron Collider. The largest particle accelerator in the world, it's 17 miles in circumference, and runs under the border of Switzerland into France. Particles are crashed into each other at near to the speed of light, and last year the LHC ...

I could list my favourite cars from this year's Geneva motor show. I could also list my least favourite cars. I went there, after all - I saw most of them - so I would be in a position to do that. But that would be boring. Instead, I've got a list of some vitally important take-away points from ...

As I'm sure I've said before, Mercedes are on a bit of a roll of late in the design department. The S Class looked stunning, the CLA looked amazing, and the new C-Class looks great. Now, continuing that design-focused trend, they've revealed the new S-Class Coupe (née CL-Class), a sleek two-door ...

LED lighting is so old fashioned, darlin'. It's laser light all the way now. At least, that's according to Audi, the pioneers of the LED running light. Having debuted laser light on the Audi Sport quattro concept at CES a couple of weeks ago, they've now revealed this season's R18 e-tron Le Mans ...

BMW, apparently, has created a self-driving/autonomous car that will drift itself. No, it's not April 1st; this is a real thing. However, it's not as ridiculous as it sounds on first impressions. BMW hasn't simply made a car that drifts on its own to allow average drivers to impress others.

You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow. This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo. You better lose yourself in the new C-Class. The moment, you own it, you better never let it go... As Eminem never sang. Anyhoo, the point is there's an all-new Mercedes C-Class, a pretty rare ...
