Photo of the Week_Bridge_Huangshan_China

Canon 5D Mark II camera and Canon 24-105mm f4 L series lens @ 24mm. Exposure Details:1/40 second @ f16 ISO 400.

The above photo features a traditional bridge on Huangshan (Yellow Mountain) in Eastern China. The semi-circular shape of the bridge is probably what makes it attractive to the eye. The line drawn by following the contour around the edge of the structure is gentle and regarded as feminine. The resulting association between the bridge and our natural world is, therefore, quite harmonious. That, together with the trees and snow make for a very attractive scene.

I loved my time exploring and photographing on Huangshan and will return as part of a special Photography Tour I plan to run to China during January 2012. Details to follow in early April.
