Yangshuo, a small town by the Li River, is well-known for its super natural landscape. With comfortable climate, ever green vegetation, abundant rivers and jade-like hills, it is reputed as the fairyland under heaven. Thus goes the famous saying: Guilin's Landscape tops those elsewhere, while Yangshuo's landscape tops that of Guilin. The best known scenic spots include the Green Lotus Peak, YangShuo Park, Scholar's Page-Boy Hill, Old Banyan Tree and Moon Hill. Each scene differs from another with its characteristic. Even the same scene varies with the change of seasons and in different temperatures within the same day.
This is Moon Hill. I hope you like it. Thanks for sharing and give any comment.

well this is a nice view and a strange effect fot the fog, any this is nice. In my taste the frame has a too "hard" color but this is not veery important for the picture

Beautiful moment in a special mood weather atmosphere, that you captured so well. I lke the the effect of the fog with the approaching foreground. The red bottoms at lef are a must. Lovely place, so well seen, done and composed.
Congratulations and my Best Regards.

Great landscape, most interesting presented as here with the details coming out in the misty setting. Good work. Still for me I think the frame a bit too large in the strong colour setting.

You have captured a very unusual effect here Huy. The blue mist looks so strange. I like the way you composed the shot to include the foreground bushes.

Such bright clouds are really tricky Huy. I have ruined many photos in like situations. If you try shooting in raw format I am sure you will be suprised to lots more details in clouds like this.
I love the location. Must be an incredible place to see. Good work!

Hi Huy, I visited Yangshuo. For some reason, I missed this scene. You have well captured the "moon" in you picture with nice "glow" effect. Nice composition and good contrast.

Hi Huy - strange atmosphere and great shot -
jemaflor (84765) 2005-12-13 12:53
incredible atmosphere with this strange blue colour, i like also the hole in the mountain, fantastic shot.

interesting shot and effect, I like hte mountains, but I think it is a little bit too blue?

Hi Huy. Well I would avoid shooting this at ISO 1600 and run it through noise filtering software if I did. I'm guessing that was an accident. I hate it when I do it myself! But other than that it's great. Nice landscape Huy.

I place at the moment no pictures, I have problem with the note in forum, deceitful information about my! Maybe friday.
Very special contrast with the blue colour tones.
Have a nice day,

these are sbsolutely fantastic olors. This blue is so beautiful while the mist gives it a mystical feel. Fantastic composition with no faults I can see. Great work my friend.
Emile (20350) 2005-12-14 7:45
As you say this is a super natural landscape, very well captured. The fog covering the hills give a nice mystic scene. Good natural frame.
Very well done. TFS.
hdl (6995) 2005-12-14 8:04
I see why they call it moon hill. Very nice; nature is really very nice over there and you depict it very good. I would not have choosen the blue frame, but that's a personal appreciation. Otherwise, well done.
jjbach (9324) 2005-12-14 9:10
Beautiful composition with great atmosphere. Full of mystery. Very well done!

This is a special turqoise blue in nature and its a very attractive picture for this reason.
The heavy vegetation the arch and the little spot of red flowers are beautiful.
I like it
