Photographer's Note

The scholar named Sun Ran of Qing Dynasty under the rule of Emperor Qianlong, left this longest couplets in China's history behind him, it contains 180 chinese characters in total.

"五百里滇池,奔来眼底,披襟岸帻,喜茫茫空阔无边,看东骧神骏,西翥灵仪,北走蜿蜒,南翔缟素。高人韵仕,何妨选胜登临,趁蟹屿螺州,疏裹就风鬟雾鬓,更苹天苇地,点缀些翠羽丹霞,莫孤负,四围香稻,万顷晴沙,九夏芙蓉,三春杨柳。"

"数千年往事,注到心头,把酒凌虚,叹滚滚英雄谁在!想汉习楼船,唐标铁柱,宋挥玉斧,元跨革囊,伟烈丰功,费尽移山心力。尽朱帘画栋,卷不及暮雨朝云,便断碣残碑,都付与苍烟落照。只赢得,几杵疏钟,半江渔火,两行秋雁,一枕青霜。"
