Photographer's Note

I took this shot with my trusty D70 while on a one-month whirlwind trip around China with my Mum, Uncle and girlfriend.

Yangdang shan (mountain) is an impressive collection of natural wonders situated in Zhejiang province, close to the city of Wenzhou.

This was my third visit to the area (previous shots include Jump! and Big Dragon Waterfall) and it was nice to be able to act as a guide to those with me.

This shot was taken shortly after getting off a heavily-used cable-car to reach the summit of a sort-of adjoining mountain. The attraction here is obviously the incredible lengths the monks (I assume) went in order to build this small hut on an outcrop of rock.

As a visitor to the area you can walk right through the hut, to the other side of the mountain where there is a massive steel/wood bridge spanning an impressive gorge. I'd recommend a trip for anybody in the area, but if you're not a big fan of Chinese food, I'd suggest a packed lunch!

Any comments/feedback welcome.
