Sunlight on the Waterfalls

This is a continuation of my recent posts on “Sunset on the Waterfall“.

The images were taken on the same day, the same location – Jiulong group of waterfalls in Yunnan, China.

Instead of showing the macro view of the top tier of waterfalls, the images below focus on the lower tiers of waterfalls.CIMG3169A

The first image shows three series of waterfalls. The top part being the toe of the first tier waterfalls shown on the posts “Sunset on the Waterfall”.

The sunlight shone on the waterfalls as they cascaded down into the lower pools.DSCF2928A

I have turned the pictures into sepias; with this, I hope that the waterfalls will stand out even more. While the top one was taken at normal shutter speed, the other ones were taken with  longer shutter speeds.DSCF2931A

In these images, the water was gushing down with all its might and glory; sanctifying and cleansing our souls.

After a day out at the waterfalls, we felt we were purified and blissful.

What is it like to take a ride on a bamboo raft, drifting near to a mystical waterfall when the sun was setting.DSCF2943A

Earlier this year, we took a trip to Yunnan and Guizhou. The Jiulong Waterfall was one of the highlights of the trip.

We didn’t have the luck of taking a ride on that bamboo raft but felt the whole scene was surreal when taking the photo. . . . . . . . . . .
