The scenic place I visited last week is called Zhangjiajie. So I'll show you some pics to share with you, hoping you will like them. Because of the cloudy wheather and the high altitude, the images in the pics may be affected by the mist. Here I'd like to give you a brief introduction to Zhangjiajie, the source of which is from www.travelchinaquides.com

Zhangjiajie is a prefecture-level city in the northwestern part of Hunan province. It comprises the district of Yongding and counties of Cili and Sangzhi. Within it is located Wulingyuan Scenic Area which was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992 as well as an AAAAA scenic area by the China National Tourism Administration.
Zhangjiajie City features a variety of different terrains including: mountainous regions, upland areas, plains, and Karst rock areas. Among these, the mountains cover 76 percent of the total area. The world-famous natural heritage site 'Wulingyuan Scenic Area' is located on the base of these great mountains. Areas worth visiting include Zhangjiajie National Forest Park (known as China's First National Forest Park), Suoxiyu Natural Resource Reserve, and Tianzi Mountain Natural Resource Reserve. The scenic area hosts many natural features including: mountains, forests, caves, lakes and waterfalls and perhaps there are more than three thousand rock ridges and eight hundred ghylls.

Hello John,
Sorry, I'm not agree with you that anything is odd here,on the other hand, this kind of landscapes are the only inspiration of an age old traditional water colours wash painting of China.
Nice shot,with a beautiful perspective and details.

Hello John,
These rock-silhouettes we know them from Chinese ink-drawings, which always impressed me by the special shapes of mountains. No problem with the mist, I have the feeling that it is part of such a landscape. Thanks so much to show us also Landscape-pictures.
Kind regards

Ciao John- Intrigant atmosphere! Bit tender contrast.
