The DP’s theme for this week is Half and Half.
Photographers talk about the rule of thirds.
This week, I will be sharing pictures which are half / half.
Here is a picture taken in Shilin, Yunnan, showing the strangely shaped rocks.
One reader commented that my Shilin Stone Forest photo is as stunning as the Huangshan with clouds and mountain photo which I posted late last week.
In my view, it is not quite in the same league.
The image here has been converted to Black & White.
Guess this is more interesting because of the contrast, the details and the texture.
Please enjoy 🙂
The Stone Forest (or Shilin, in Mandarin), in Kunming, is a beautiful park with limestone formations.
The tall rocks in the park seem to emanate from the ground in the manner of stalagmites, with many looking like petrified trees thus creating the illusion of a forest made of stone.
Since 2007, two parts of the site, the Naigu Stone Forest and Suogeyi Village, have been awarded UNESCO World Heritage Sites as part of the South China Karst] The site is classified as a AAAAA-Class tourist site.
The view of the stalagmites, the blossoms and the lake together formed beautiful pictures.
We were delighted to be there when there wasn’t a lot of tourists ( I have successfully kept the tourists outside my pictures!)
