Yuanyang (Heaven on Earth)
We were positioning on top of a hill waiting to take sunrise photo of the Rice terrace.
Suddenly there was a ray of light shinning on top of some cloud in another direction. I began to focus on it, with some luck a strong breeze and blow off some cloud reviling the glowing golden hill top. I managed to snap a shot.
It all happen so fast, in a matter of second my fellow photographers who are pointing at a different directions missed this shot.

Beautiful photo Tony. The view is almost breathtaking. It is so unreal and fantasy-like. Great job.
Take care, Estaban

You were very lucky to have the opportunity to take that shot. It's beautiful. I love the way wind blows the clouds away on both sides of the hill. Good light too!

I am glad to share this wonderful photograph.
Yuanyang is a less discovered photo-destination of the world. I consider my brief visit here a lucky chance, but you even got more: you had a golden opportunity when Mother Nature rewards you with such dreaming and sweet rays of light.

This is one of the "god's donation" pictures.
I wish this has been captured on medium format with Fujichrome Velvia transparent film...
Thanks for such a beautiful contribution,

Wow...this one really deserves more points! My goodness! It's like an ancient Chinese scroll painting come to life! Really a once in a lifetime moment that you've captured here.
