One of the many canals in west Wuzhen, taken from a stone bridge. I liked the diagonal sweep of the water towards the horizon and the 2 boats added a little life. From Wikitravel:
"Wuzhen (乌镇) is located on the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal and also around a net-work of other smaller canals and rivers. The town has numerous bridges, ancient harbors and water-side pavilions, and makes an excellent complimentary side-trip for visitors staying in nearby Hangzhou. Buses ply the route from Hangzhou to Wuzhen."
I came via Suzhou, to the north.

Hi Chris - I feel as if I have been on an extensive tour of China thanks to your comprehensive series. A lovely backwater shot, good POV and a lovely curved sweep of old buildings on the LHS. A good addition to the collection. Warm regards Rosemary

The houses are framing well the canal. The length of the canal is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the houses and of the boats. The morning light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

J'aime bien ces petits canaux dans la ville ancienne. La plongée est très détaillée et l'image raconte une histoire.

a tranquil and captivating image of canal life. Beautifully detailed and executed perfectly. The lines, light and colours here are so serene and the little splash of red is just in the right place. Excellent!
Regards - Brian.

Boats in the channel that is beautiful in both houses are on the move. This beauty but the danger to surrounding homes. Resolution and excellent

la luce che passa sul canale rende ancora più bella la scena.
Perfetta l'inquadratura con le abitazioni e le barche e il taglio che hai dato,

This is beautiful from high angle with blue reflection on the surface. Nice light and boats in this canal. Lovely details and thanks for sharing.

document tout simple sur cet endroit paisible, très vénitien. Les lumières douces inondent les canaux, le moment de prise de vue bien choisi avec cette embarcation qui n'a rien d'une gondole.

I visited a few old water town in China, but I guess there are more than I have time for. I have not been to this one, so it is nice to see your shots.
Beautiful POV of the canal with passenger boat leading in. Good light, nice details of the old architectures and houses.

Queste foto della Cina , le sue città , i suoi canali.
Tutta la vita nel lavoro e dentro casa.
Paese immenso e "misterioso" per me " povero occidentale presuntuoso"
ourania (36366) 2012-03-23 14:10
the voyage along this canal must be a marvellous experience. Your photo is perfectly sharp and clear and helps us capture the beauty of this place and share the experience of being there in a splendidly bright afternoon. I like very much the deep view of the canal, the buidings that flank it and the boats idly gliding on it. The architecture is interesting and lovely. I love the textures and the reflections and most of all the exquisite light, managed masterfully. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

A good light balance between shadows and sunny side of the... canal.
The boats and people on them add life and movement to the scene.
Have a nice WE!

Fantastic view along the canal, Venezia in China, Chris.
Boats looks as on easy sail through the calm water, and a nice mirror effect upon the surface.
Town houses looks simple made by wood and stone combined.
A fine pic. of far country daily life.
Enjoy a nice weekend,
