Wuyuan trip: scenery

The countryside scenery and village architecture in Wuyuan (婺源) is really unique and photogenic.

They grow rapeseed in this particular area, and it's extremely popular among Chinese tourists to go there in April to see the flowers during the couple week period that they're in bloom.




This is a color photo taken near dusk at the back of a small village, Hongcun (洪村), and because of the misty rain, whitewashed houses, and back lighting, it's almost like a black and white:

And of course, the free condom dispenser for the village. It's just like college!



Here's a Google Maps link to Wuyuan, you can zoom out to get an idea of where it's located:

you definitely are good photographer,but a lazy writer,it would be perfect if you put more words around the pictures to describe more details as well as your feelings to show people you love the place.Don't be shy,it's not a pissing contest...sorry if you feel upset again about my comments,I don't mean to be critical,however, very nice pictures,much better quality than mine,and let me know first if you gonna delete my comments. :)

Good observation. This post does tend to have more photos than words because I made an effort to get it posted as soon as I got back. If I can think of some humorous comments to write next to the photos, I'll add them in.
