Photographing Yellow Mountain

Regular visitors to this site will be aware of my fondness for Huangshan (Yellow Mountain) in Eastern China. I visited during the slow winter season in January 2011 and reveled in the low tourist numbers on the mountain trails at that time of year.

The above photo was made during a very brief clearing in the mist that surrounded me throughout my 3 days trekking the mountain trails. I love the way the mist is swirling around the rocky outcrop which, only moments earlier, was an impenetrable wall of white mist.

Huangshan, I can't wait until I return. And, while it would be great to visit again during spring or autumn, I may well choose to return again during winter. It's hard to beat a location where pathways are largely free of the literally millions of tourists who visit at other times of years. Have no doubt, this is a place of great beauty.
