Photographer's Note

One of the biggest attractions in Guilin is the Seven Stars Park which takes its name from the seven peaks inside which resemble the form of the Big Dipper constellation. It is the largest comprehensive park with mass scenery in Guilin City and covers an area of more than 120 hectares. The park is endowed with elegant mountains, clear water, miraculous stone forest, deep and serene valleys, plentiful animals and plants and valued cultural relics.
The park is located on the east bank of the Li River and the gate to it is the Flower Bridge. Built in the Song Dynasty (960-1279),it is the oldest bridge in Guilin. Every spring and summer (unfortunately the picture was taken in the winter), it is set off with blooming flowers and the streams, hence the name Flower Bridge. The larruping point of the bridge lies in that the arch's inverted reflection in water always looks like a full moon. It never changes even though the quantity of water changes. One can see the arches better from different POV but I chose this one for more interesting composition.
