Reflections on Yulong River

Karst hills along the Yulong River, China, 2007

This photo I took on an Easter weekend getaway to Yangshuo, a charming tourist town near the better known city of Guilin in Guangxi province, is posted to join the internet meme Weekend Reflections hosted by blogger James. For a list of other participating blogs, click HERE.

Beautiful view.
I like the way it is foggy in the distance, yet the foreground is so very clear.

It's so interesting how the mountain shapes are different from the ones we have here. It's a beautiful location and photo, but those shapes really catch my attention.

Very pretty. It's not at all what I think of when I think of China. This looks so peaceful. And where are all the people? :)

The landscape is so beautiful and the shape of those mountains is quite something else - very steep! Beautiful reflections.

The scene is so beautiful and your photo is just perfect!

Francisca said...

Thank you one and all for dropping by and your encouraging comments. :-)

@EG WoW, like in Canada, there really are corners of China where there aren't the masses of humans you find in urban centres. On this day, we thoroughly aggravated the boatmen waiting for us by being late; they informed us that the "others" had left 45 minutes earlier. Lucky us!! Four of us (plus two boatmen) floated down the river on those bamboo rafts in perfect peace and silence. It was a slice of heaven.

@Carletta - you bet!

This is a beautiful picture with a wonderful reflection. I have been to China several times, but have never been to Guangxi. I would love to visit there some day.
Thanks for stopping by my site.
