SanQing Shan (10) – Pines

< 4 photos>

Sanqing Shan is famous for its strange rocks, strangely shaped pines and the mist.DSCF0964

My four photos here will not do justice to the scenery there, but these are the best I have got, given the short stay there.DSCF0955

Many of the pines are older than 100 years.DSCF0962

They reach out for more sunlight, more air and moisture.DSCF1013

Sanqing Shan is a UNESCO site.

  1. Now I know I wasn’t even born when my Humans lived in China 2006 to 2012, bloody hell they must be old… anyway they watched your video with me. Your photography is jaw dropping and the scenery had my Humans in tears. They have been there, they get it, but your pictures bring it home again… Obsoletely spectacular, give yourself a pat on the back for the photos mate!


    • They said it is a fairy! I have seen pictures which show a full body view. My view was partially obstructed and restricted to the top portion as I was high up.

  2. I am always amazed at how my vision of ancient chinese paintings of mountains and mist is… how shall I say? “Confirmed by your photographs. Hard to explain. In my mind’s eye, all I had were the paintings, which I thought were a… poetic rendition. But no. One can actually see it. (Do I make sense?)
    Maybe if one has only seen Van Gogh’s paintings of the french countryside and never seen a picture or walked in the wheat fields, one would have the same shock at seeinga photograph or the reality of french wheat fields.
