Fence Along Tanjiang River

Along the Tanjiang River in Kaiping is a long stretch of walkway where pedestrians are separated from the river by a unique fence. Here are three shots featuring the fence taken at different times of the day.



Kaiping, 2011

In this last photo you see a boat-shaped restaurant that I first posted here.

The fence is for Friday Fences.

The sunset is for Skywatch Friday.

The reflections are for Weekend Reflections.

The fence shadow is for Sunday Shadows.

I am returning to Kaiping early next week, so after this weekend my posting and blog hopping will be interrupted until I find a way to pierce the Great Firewall of China... or leave China. I can always be reached by email.

Location... the red bubble marks the spot:

Love, love, and love....3 gorgeous make me drool shots. I'm a light person, so I might be inclined to like that middle shot the best, but the others are spectacular as well.
I hope in your trip to China you find a way to connect. It's always fun to travel the world with you.
I'm planning to slap up a little Mural Monday this week-maybe by then you'll find a window.
Travel safely.

Two-three years ago, since my first visit to Asia, I have never thought that I will discover there so much beauty. And every blog I follow and every post I read sustain my opinion. Yours included. Have a good trip!

JM said...

Not only the fence is beautiful but also the perspectives are fantastic!

Btw, I think I answered all your questions... LOL!

Really nice shots. I especially like the sky and colors in the second one. :)

Lesley said...

As a good fence should, it acts as a very nice frame for the rest of the view!

Rather clever to kill so many birds with one stone (as it were!) I really like seeing the same place captured in different lights (or the dark in this case). Enjoy your visit to China - I look forward to those photos too.

Genie said...

YOu have given us both shadows and reflections in this one post and they are beautiful. That last shot is awesome. What a fine capture. Hope you have a nice weekend. genie

Carola said...

All three are great and SO different. The shadows are realy in a special pattern. This old stone fence makes a fantastic contrast to the skyscrapers, wonderful with the sun and reflections on the river. The colorful light reflections are awesome.

eileeninmd said...

Hello Francisca, all three are wonderful photos. I hope you have a safe and happy trip. Great photos, Happy Skywatching!

Faye said...

I appreciate youe taking the time to show us three different views of this wonderful fence and walkway. What a difference the time of day makes in the scene. I'll bet this is a very popular place for people to stroll and enjoy the scenery.

Rose said...

Oh, this is lovely...different to what we normally see...and i love the sunset and the reflections!

Dianne said...

they're all beautiful
the top scene is stunning

Mama Zen said...

I love that second shot!

Ebie said...

Love the last shot! I wonder if I get tipsy, the boat shape restaurant is slanting.

Enjoy your trip, Ms. World Traveler!

Gattina said...

Beautiful, love the last shot, all these lights reflecting in the water !

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

All three of your photos radiate peace and contentment!

WHEN YOU SEE THE SHADOWS DANCE

When you see the shadows dance,
Be it Mexico or France,
You may join the shadow fun,
Dancing till the day is done!

Catherine said...

what a magical sequence of shots....

Ms. Becky said...

oh my word that's a magnificent fence. if I had a small fraction of the adventure you have in your life, I'd be happy with that. I hope you're able penetrate that great wall of China. safe travels Francisca. I look forward to the view from there.

TexWisGirl said...

i thought the first shot was beautiful, but the progression made me go 'wow!' nice!

Genie said...

I wonder why it looks like when you are sitting in that restaurant. It certainly is a eye catcher from land. Your other show shot are just as awesome. Beautiful photography this week. genie

We will miss you.

Great shadow post. Really enjoyed seeing all the interesting sights that I will never see otherwise.

These are beautiful images you took Ms. F!

Come find out the origin of my shadow last week.

Gemma Wiseman said...

The fence line is like a series of fascinating sculptures! And how magical the shapes are in the changing light! Beautiful photos!

cieldequimper said...

Hi Francisca and Happy New Year!

I didn't even realise you were posting, your blog has disappeared from my dashboard for some reason, hence my absence of visits lately :-(

Oh you do find the most beautiful way of photographing!

Kaori said...

The photo of the sun setting is gorgeous! The fence rails have lovely character. Hope you have a safe trip to China! Come back soon ;D

Susan said...

The fence is beautiful and so is the walkway. Love the trees too!

These are all lovely Francisca. I love the first one. It's just perfect!

Wow! Beautiful!

Awesome shots! That fence is magnificent. I love the shadows in the first shot, the silhouettes in the second, and the night shot is stunning.

Pat Tillett said...

I wouldn't be able to pick a favorite out of this beautiful group. thanks for both the photos and words that go with them.

Lowell said...

Very creative photography. Very beautiful fence. Sounds like you're having fun.

Glad you were able to get through the "firewall." Don't think I had anything to do with it, though! :-)
