Fog Movement – For PA by morganpt

The Yuanyang Rice Terraces 元陽 are one of the most peaceful places for me. I find the movement of fog quite musical. This image was taken from the porch of my hostel at the Duoyishu point of the terraces 多依树 in the morning.

PA – I read you comment while sitting in the airport and thought I’d post an oldie that I think you’d like. Your images showcase an intrinsic connection between humans and nature – and I couldn’t think of a more poignant place than Yunnan, where humans carved into nature to create a sustaining beautify that feeds farming communities.

Picture of Hani rice terraces with abstract swirls of colors and patterns that stretched like stairways to heaven.
On foggy day,it was like floating within clouds.
In this picture,stairways of rice terraces are connecting modern village at low land(houses at left corner)
and ancient village(right top corner)build by ancestor high up the mountain.Just like tales of stairway to heaven.
Thank You for You visit and support.

Photo of Yuanyang ancient village,at Duoyishu rice terraces
surrounded by fog. Foggy enviroment that look like clouds along stairways that lead
to villages gave picture of stairways to heaven. That’s how Yuanyang earned name of
‘Tien shang Ren Jian’ 天上人间 (Heaven on earth).
