Photographer's Note

Well... what to say? This is Bangchuishan in Chengde about 30 minutes walk from Pulesi temple.
The size does matter it seems. The rock is 38,29 meters high and weighs 16000 tons. The diameter of the upper part is 15 meters and 10 meters in the lower part where the people are standing.
Knowing how superstitious the Chinese people generally are, I found it mildly surprising that they haven't turned this into some sort cult place where one could light an insence or two for the god of fertility. Anyway some viagra-company could use this in their commercials.
Sorry about the bland quality of photo. The weather and timing (= LIGHT) were the worst possible for photographying: its was midday and the sun was shining from cloudless sky. On top of that I had to use a tele extension for this shot.
