China never looked so good (since the advent of digital photography)

Amateur travel photography in China reaches new heights, as this site clearly shows. The splendor of the land complemented by growing skills and technology makes for a fascinating viewing. Here are a few samples:

Unreal Landscapes... any one of them seems more at home in some imagined sf/f world than the other side of the planet from where I'm sitting.

The post very much on time for me so I am glad I checked the net. I just finished watching The Last Emperor. Photography in the movie is ok but very limited - to the Forbidden City, the prison and some other grey stuff. Very nice pictures and show a different face of China.

Wonderful images. I'd be inclined to visit your site again or on a more regular basis if you would please cite your sources. Some, you have. Great! Clicking on a link that takes me to a static flickr page does not allow me to investigate. Informational-wise, it's like clicking on a thumbnail of a picture and not getting a larger picture. Frustrating experience. Finding more citation information, like a good newspaper, would make for a more rewarding experience and something that I turn to places like reddit and flickr for.

thank you for this comment. Most of the sources are listed in the body of the post, or at the end of it. I also duplicate the source info on the flickr pages. Some photos lead to the larger versions, if such are available. I would like to find out more about the locations photographed here; if you have such info, please send it in.

A place for the eye and mind. Stunning. Please track down the exact location. It's a must visit. Thanks for finding.

I wonder how much of the area shown in the pics, especially the river scenes with the old volcanic cones, will be under water after the DAM is complete.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

To say thats China is a bit too generalized. All of the photos are just from one area!

I really liked the picture you found. It looks so relaxing. I couldn’t figure out what it was in the water but when I looked closer I made it out to be a person floating in the water looking up at the sky. I wish I could trade places with that person. Instead I’m stuck here with all this snow. I loved your descriptions about the picture too.

Great photos to say the least. They give a very false reality of where the majority of the population lies today. Over 40% of its 1.3+ billion people live in urban settings. Those in rural locales are facing soil erosion, desertification, and lack of potable water in significant numbers.

Blogger Simmons said...

Wow. Those are amazing.

Anonymous sky said...

I want go to travel china and see this place with my eyes it's wonderful land

Anonymous Iliya said...

These are simply awesome. The first one is on the border between China and Vietnam; high on my wish list. Made a few of these pictures too during my last trip in China. Many others are from the Guilin area (Yangshuo and Longji)....awesome area.

But this still only covers 1/10.000 of what China has to offer.

Great images....I am immediately thinking of checking ticket prices to Beijing :)
