Photographer's Note

Jinting Pavilion on Mount Emei´s Golden Summit is seen here from a bit different perspective. Pavilion itself is a modern reconstruction of the original building that was covered with bronze tiles that shone like gold in sunshine - hence the name "Golden Summit" or Jinding. The original Jinting Pavilion met it´s fate during the so called "Great" Leap "Forward" when the broze tiles were taken to Chongqing to be melted into something completely different ... possibly cables or miniature bronze statues of the Great Helmsman - who knows.
