Photographer's Note

According to our TE friend Mesutilgim,this capture from China creates a perfect balance with my previous entry.A look towards a hopeful future for Greece.

Xitang is an ancient scenic town in Jiashan County, Zhejiang Province, China. Its history dates back to at least the Spring and Autumn Period when it was located at the border of the State of Yue and Wu.

Xitang is a water town criss-crossed by nine rivers. The town stretches across eight sections, linked by old-fashioned stone bridges. In the older parts of town, the buildings are set along the banks of the canals, which serve as the main transportation thoroughfares in the area.

Xitang also contains numerous antique residences and temples, such as the Temple of the Seven Masters. The town keeps a tranquil ambience and scenic beauty, making it a very popular tourist attraction. It is frequently depicted in Chinese landscape painting.

Xitang locations were featured in the final sequences of the motion picture Mission: Impossible III.
