Some shots from LiJiang, China (large post)

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by 3stones, Jul 19, 2005.

  1. LiJiang is a small city in YuanNang Province in China. Like many other southwestern areas, LiJiang has many breathtaking landscapes and great cultral heritage. It is photographers' heaven for all the seasons.
    LiJiang is famous also because Shangrila is not far from the city.

    Shangrila is the beautiful imaginary place depicted in James Hilton's novel Lost Horizon (published in 1933). Because of high altitude (about 4000m), my son didn't feel comfortable during our last trip. Therefore we didn't visit Shangrila. This will give us another big reason to go back to LiJiang in the near future.

    WOW 3!!! Those are fantastic! Your trip has brought back many fine treasures to be sure!

    Like Simon, I like the first one a lot - I was surprised when I scrolled down to see the alling water. :) 

    But I also really like the last one. The expression on the girl is wonderful!

    And I am amazed how much #6 resembles Yosemite! ;) 

    Keep up the shooting and posting!!!
  9. Wonderful pictures
  10. I can't even pick a favorite, because they are all so beautiful. Looks like an area I would love to visit, although chances are I will never get there--too many places close to home I haven't seen yet. :D 

    I'm so glad I could see China through your eyes.
  11. Thanks all for the kindly comments. I'm glad all you like the photos. I just added some more comments to each photo. Hope you can get some info.
