This is what I saw when I reached the top of a mountain in South Korea last Autumn.
These mountains have the shape of the ears of a horse and in Chinese, they are called the Horse Ear Mountains.
We made our way to the top and saw this Guanyin statue. In fact, I was more impressed by the texture and contrast in colors.
The exposed slopes was rugged, but the lower half of the picture was covered with a red colored vine.
Where one color / texture transitions into another, there stood Guanyin (of a smoother texture) with a gesture of Peace in her hands.
So, this is my second submission on the theme of Texture.
I enjoyed this photo very much. I wonder if the statue had to be carried by hand up to the top of the mountain?
I also suspect that the statute was transported to the mountain top!
Really lovely. This is a great contrast.
Wonderful textures! I love the contrasts – between the roughness of the mountainside and the smoothness of the leaves and the statue, also between the natural and man-made textures. The vine is a glorious colour – people often grow a similar one against their homes here in the UK as the leaves turn a beautiful colour in Autumn.

You are welcome – I really enjoyed this image 🙂
Thank you for sharing this… Otherwise, I might have never learned of the ‘Horse Ear Mountains’ and the Guanyin statue. Sincerest regards…
Sorry that I cannot remember the name of the mountain in Korean.
I am glad that you like the post!
I added a texture picture to my yellow bike blog for you. 🙂
