There are a few 1000 years old Banyan tree in Yang Jia Xi.
which brought photographers to this other wise unkonwn village.
This photo was taken early in the morning we have only 15 mins to take this photo before the sun raises too high.
This is one of my favorite photos during this recent photo trip. It was raining for the entire trip except the morning I took this photo
The original posting I crop the photo it is a little tight. Hence, I decided to re post it using the original proportion.

This whole series of shots has been stunning - the light in this version is almost religious. I love how the sunbeams are clear and direct - you can follow them all the way to the ground, and the woman remains in shadow despite the light all around her. Amazing work.

A truly inspirational photo to me, this light is incredible, as ACL 1978 above me says, its almost religious in its intensity and splendour. Perfect composition and the woman adds a wonderful human element. I would so much love to see this place. Bravo!!!

I am not at all surprised that this photo is one of your favourites. The sunrays are spectacular, lighting up the image in a strong yet non-intrusive way. The curved branch of the ancient tree creates a beautiful natural frame. Lovely details and an amazing atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you for sharing!!
With best wishes,

I can see why this one is one of your favourites. The rays of the rising sun and the position of the figure in the middle...just wonderful. The scene is like from a fairytale, really well captured. Congratulations.
