Photographer's Note

You might think I’m being somewhat creative with this title but actually not. This place is called Beginning to Believe Peak. It is one of the must see and most impressive spot in Huangshan in my personal opinion.

There are always dilemmas for me to take a sunrise photo. I’m not a morning person, I don’t like cold. You have to find out what time is the sunrise, will there even be a sunrise depending on the weather. Is it worth dragging my skinny behind out of the warm bed for? Because of the limited space on the viewing area I had to pick a spot. Where do I set my tripod? There were hundreds of other people wanting to take a picture of themselves in front of the scenery. Once you take a spot, and you have to be quick or the front spot will be taken quickly. The question is where will the sun come up? Well here I picked a not too bad of a spot, the sun rise just a little over to the left of the mountain, but it didn’t really matter much, because it was too cloudy anyway, but the sky put on fantastic show with the clouds illuminated by the rising sun.

Huangshan, translated Yellow Mountain is a mountain range in southern Anhui province in eastern China. The area is well known for its peculiarly-shaped granite peaks and pine trees. Frequently shrouded in mist, the many peaks appear to float above the clouds. The development of walking tracks and cable cars makes this landscape accessible to all active travelers. Thousands of stairs to walk up and down, my knees hurt just thinking about it.
