I got up early to see the sunrise, but there were already hundreds of people in front of me, I have no place to stand at the look out point. So I went over to ther other side where the sun shine at the mountain with the amzing cloud spilling over the mountains. As you can see there were some snow and frost on the trees already in October and it was cold in the morning.
Huangshan, translated Yellow Mountain (with the morning sun shining at it seem appropriate for the name) 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.
Huangshan is a frequent subject of traditional Chinese paintings and literature, and now modern photography.

A spectacular panoramic view of these mountain range with superb colors and sharpness. Beautiful blue sky with passing clouds and lovely frost on the trees. I like the effect of the sunlight producing some wonderful colors.
holmertz (59142) 2012-02-23 13:30
I find it hard to vary my comments on your photos, beacuse they always show us incredible views of the most marvellously shaped mountains I could imagine. And they are always technically perfect with superb sharpness and light management. This one sticks to the rule. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Way ne Lim ,
A golden light fantastic and breathtaking views, artistically and technically perfect, my sincere congratulations, i add to my favorite,
my best regards,

You seem to have chosen a very nice POV, which gives not only a different angle, but also the human element, a surely effective scale for the viewers.
I might be nit-picking only for the oversharpened trees (or is it due to the jpeg minimization?). Gradual toning in front, on the pine trees might be focusing us more on the rocky mountains and the beautiful clouds.
jjcordier (79297) 2012-02-23 22:26
Magnifique photo de ce superbe endroit, d'une grande beauté, et rendu encore plus impressionnant par le cadrage et le POV trouvés. Lumière et couleurs splendides également.

Hello Way - You have an excellent ability to present the natural world at her finest. This shot is a great example, you may have missed the sunrise but what you have here is stunningly beautiful. The contrast between the soft layers of cloud and the jagged peaks of the mountain, both in colour and texture, is so appealing. The tiny figures standing up on the ridge are a perfect metaphor for the supremacy of nature over man's best efforts. Nice work. Warm regards Rosemary
emka (106772) 2012-02-23 23:35
Hi Way, it is always worth getting up early. We say who got up early, gets from God (in Polish it sounds better). fantastic view, the mountains are really yellow here(or golden). In the right upper corner I can spot people! Not the place for me because of vertigo. Striking composition, fantastic colours.
ChrisJ (117855) 2012-02-23 23:37
Hi Way ne Lim
Looks like you got snow in September. I have been here in January & it was overcast & snowing. Good color saturation & nice warm cold color contrasts with excellent sharpness. The people in the top left corner add scale. Tfs!

Hello Dear Way ne lim
Wonderful composition with warm lighted splendid rocky mountains over incredibly beautiful cloud sea. Excellent presentation with again incredibly perspective to get strong sense of depth like three dimension and perfect light management to get sharpness,clarity. Travelers at the top of the rocks added tremendous excitement to the magnificence of the scenery.
Thanks for sharing
sacimar (28701) 2012-02-24 5:06
this is a fantastic place, the point of view is excellent, the light was also beautiful in that moment, congratulations,
Have a good weekend,
everlasting (15390) 2012-02-24 5:30
a breathtaking view and well worth getting up early for.It didnt matte r that you couldnt get to the front you made the most of your POV and to see the tourists climbing in the distance gives a good scale perception.

Hello Naughty Young Way
Do you know you have your own publicity machine? Valter (Bayno) put this up on Facebook, of course crediting you as photographer. The title says it all, really. It's a sensational photo. You must do alot of climbing as you always seem to obtain very high and unusual POVs. Fantastic colours, sharpness and of course the light, it's all about the light. The clouds are like a happy dream. Wonderful shot, congrats.
Cricri (125878) 2012-02-25 11:01
Sublime lumière sur le haut de ces impressionnant rochers et la mer de nuages sous la lumière et le bleu du ciel, magnifique
golus (2893) 2012-02-25 11:08
An absolutely stunning shot of these majestic mountain range over the clouds. To figure out how huge they are, looking to the upper left part of the summit is enough, I see tiny little people there. The lighting, colors, sharpness and depth are all stunning here. And your title really fits to this scene perfectly. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes,
bebbetto (40) 2012-02-26 4:03
Stunning photos. Wonderful view and beautiful carpet of clouds. Superb composition, superb quality

Hello Way ,
No other choice to add this one to my theme ;) . One od the most fascinating landscape on Earth , perfectly captured by you , as usual . Like especially the contrast of the golden tonalities of the peaks , with the blue ones of the low clouds .
david_P (512) 2012-02-27 23:33
amazing spot for this photo, Sharp and the sweet light give a peaceful atmosphere to the scene
shevchenko (20548) 2012-02-28 2:17
Just so good to stay here, the view above the clouds are always visible without paying for an air ticket. Beautiful yellow mountain and blue sky under soft sunlight, thanks for sharing a fascinating nature view.
danyy (0) 2012-02-28 12:54
une ^photo très nette d'un des toits du Monde, mais si il y a encore de la végétation, c'est la preuve qu'on st pas si haut. Contraste violent entre les couleurs chaudes du roc sous le soleil et ce bleu du ciel au dessus de ce blanc tapis de nuages.
L'envie de s'envoler.
axiotea (21651) 2012-02-29 1:43
It was smart to go on the other side because the view is just fantastic! A vertiginous pov and a great play with the lights & shades. People on the top left side look so tiny and are welcomed in your compo.
The title really fits the image!
LOOOK13 (19046) 2012-02-29 12:06

jmdias (68677) 2012-03-03 1:23
fabulous view, the contrast between the golden rocks and the blues ahead are marvelous. I liked the small details like the snow in the trees. nice job.
Angshu (56760) 2012-03-07 21:15
Sabaidie Way again
I didn't believe my eyes when I saw 3 pictures in your gallery which I had not visited!
You've shown us pictures of this amazing place before, some of which are etched in my mind. I guess the top left where we can see the people is the lookout point?
The combination of the 3 elements, sunlight, frost the clouds creates a fantastic setting. A fantastic shot yet again!
rabdelnoor (3423) 2012-03-08 18:02
Hi Way. Outstanding landscape picture, with very nice perspective and depht. Nice to see the small ones on the top. What a experience must be there.
jhm (160023) 2012-03-09 0:53
I take these picture, your last picture is black and white, I am no great fan of black and white.
These picture is really a beautiful panoramic image..
Your picture is very well of quality, also the colors are really.
Excellent perspective and depth image.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,
abmdsudi (57720) 2012-03-09 23:28
Thks, I am still around but just had the usual break.
What an amazing view when we are above the clouds and we are very small in front of nature and almost nothing. I like everything about this; the comp, the tones, detail and contrasting colors at high altitude and atmospehere it evokes, and the most attractive is the pov and 'feel' of being there at the right time. The peaks hold everything together nicely. A gorgeous shot! Congrats
Robert1969 (7160) 2012-03-13 11:27
A spectacular view of these mountain range,
fantastic over the clouds, with beautiful
layers in the picture.
Also spectacular is (as al-way-s) the composition
and light management.
mkamionka (39943) 2012-03-29 14:16
no words to give it a justice. The view is breath taking. Again you have woke up before the sun to create such a work of art and share it with us.
CanmoreKevin (2111) 2012-04-17 19:14
Incredible POV. Wonderful crisp details. Love this composition.
danos (103144) 2012-05-09 12:31
Ohh what a scenery! excellent presentation of the yellow Mt. during the coming day, with the sun to 'paint' with this superb colour the rocks.I like the fascinating view from over there with the POV to be over the shodows.Great.
kiks (12759) 2012-10-01 7:05
Amazing this place in his beauty. The warmcolors on the peaks and the ice on the trees rising above the clouds! What a landschape!!
