While U.S. President Donald #Trump is pushing for a #tradedeal to slash his country’s yawning deficit with #China, it was his French counterpart #EmmanuelMacron who landed a €30bn #aviation contract with Beijing on Monday (Mar 25). China concluded a deal to buy 300 #aircraft from #Airbus during President #XiJinping’s state visit to #France. The value of the deal was twice what was touted last year, and only compounds the woes of U.S. manufacturer #Boeing, whose #737MAX planes have been grounded across the world this month, after two fatal crashes.

The deal-making also stretched well beyond planes. The countries agreed to allow French exports of chicken to China, according to Le Figaro. French energy company EDF and the China Energy Investment Corporation also signed a €1bn accord to develop an offshore wind farm off China. BNP Paribas, Eurazéo and the China Investment Corporation signed a MoU to set up a Franco-Chinese co-operation fund, targeting €1bn. Schneider Electric and China's Power Construction Corporation reached a strategic agreement that could also reach €6bn concerning the modernization of factories.

President Donald #Trump will throw himself fully into his battle to overhaul U.S. #tradedeals this week. Trump will try to rework U.S. trade relationships on more than one front in the coming weeks and months. He not only aims to strike a new deal with China, but also wants Congress to ratify a revised North American #tradedeal. Trump has railed against #China, #Mexico and #Canada's trade practices for years and sees the criticism as a central part of his political appeal. The U.S. and China still have a long way to go toward agreeing to a deal - and Beijing appears unlikely to meet some of the #Trumpadministration's demands.

The high-stakes trade decisions in Washington do not end there. Trump has also accused #Europe of unfair trade practices, and sees tariffs on #Europeancars as one means to address them. The move would come with its own political risks. Trump's tariff policy has sparked more backlash from #Republicans on Capitol Hill than just about anything the president has done since he took office. #GOP lawmakers have in particular questioned the national security justification the Trump administration used to put duties on steel and aluminum imports last year.

U.S. President Donald #Trump’s blunt-force use of tariffs in pursuing his 'America First' trade agenda has angered many, from company executives to allied governments and members of both parties of Congress. But there’s one effort which has drawn broad support from those who oppose him on almost everything else - his push to force Beijing to change what are widely viewed as #China’s market-distorting trade and subsidy practices.

#EuropeanUnion members, traditional allies of the #UnitedStates, are still smarting about the steel and aluminum tariffs Trump imposed on imports into the United States last year. The #EU is also worried that Trump will impose duties on autos. But the bloc shares many of the same frustrations over China’s technology transfer policies and market access constraints.

Minnehaha Falls Blue Mountains National Park

This was a popular falls a century ago. Recently, the trail to the fall has become unsafe. It has now been closed, perhaps forever. Even when open, these falls were surprisingly difficult to locate (because of poor signage, some of which once led me in the opposite direction to the falls). This was the view from the plunge pool below the cascade.

Image: A single handheld shot at mid speed to catch a little water blur (but it then took a number of shots to catch a moment without wind blur in the vegetation. The shot has been tone mapped to compensate for light mist, and to differentiate the different greens in the ferns and shrubs.

Celebrate: Thank you. To celebrate what we all achieved on G+, i am publishing the 50 most viewed posts in this collection (with 450m views) until shutdown. This is an unreprocessed image of this fall (3rd most viewed).

Goodbye Google+

It's kind of sad that this platform is going away, since it really had potential compared with other social networks. It's been a fun time here for several years and I wanted to thank each and everyone of you who continued to stop by and interact with my posts. I am incredibly grateful for all the positive feedback I received regarding my photography over the years and although I am sort of on a photography hiatus these last few months one never knows, I might be back with some new work at some point soon.

If you do feel you want to stay connected, let me know. I am not big on social networks, but you could find me on 500px if you are using that:

Thanks a lot!

Govetts Leap Blackheath
Celebration: countdown 4

In full flow, on a nice bright sunny day, the water of this deep leap changes shape from top braids, mid waves to bottom mists as water velocity increases.

Image: I originally processed this panorama of 5 shots with VSCO emulation Fuji Velvia 100 Landscape with vibrancy and image noise reduced. In the past 5 years, the post production tools available to photographers have improved dramatically - but VSCO has ceased making its emulations (which is a loss). This time i have reprocessed for printing toning this image for structure.

Celebrate: Thank you. To celebrate what we all achieved on G+, i am publishing the 50 most viewed posts in this collection (with 450m views) until shutdown. This is an reprocessed image of this fall (4th most viewed).

For those of you who have followed this collection, as a sign of my appreciation for your interest and support, i will be publishing a free downloadable 100 page book on these falls shortly: details will be posted on www.silenttheory.net later today.
