Dear Rainer and Fred,
I am grateful. I must admit I have no idea when the contest is current, but the votes are an affirmation.
And thank you also, Eva for your appreciation and vote. It is a spectacular part of this great country.
Very dramatic, very nice
That's wonderful, Utpal. I am glad you also can enjoy the drama and majesty of this Yangtze landscape. Thanks for the vote.
Great shot, very good composition! Voted
I really appreciate your comments and vote, Harri. I am delighted to share a little of 'my' China with you.
Warm regards from Brisbane.
I didn`t know! Voted!
Ian, this is a great pic, wonderful!! I vote it, greetings from Germany, antoni
Welcome back, Goran. You previously said that this makes you think of flying. My son, a pilot, became a flying instructor, so now I might go flying more often. Thanks for the vote, too.
Antoni, it is a joy to receive your greetings and you compliment. Thanks. Best wishes from Australia.
I vote! A wonder!
Thanks you very much, Olga. To be on a boat and look up at the towering cliffs, I was filled with awe. Glad to share this remarkable river with you.
So this is part of what we won't be seeing, Ian! But it was beautifully "seen" by you. Part of the reason for my recent inactivity is that I have been very active getting ready for a trip to China: a week from right now we should be in Beijing. Then the Yangtze (at its current height), X'ian, the Li river valley, and Shanghai. Then Hugh and I have added on three nights at Siem Reap, and we'll visit Hong Kong in order to fly back from there.
But I digress. Beautiful photo, Ian.
I, for one, have really missed you, for your conversations, insights, perspectives as well as images. And now it is wonderful to not only know of the precious family time you have had, including with Rousseau, but of the next voyage! Voyages: Yangtze and Li!
I hope that you have some clear air when in Guilin and while voyaging on the Yangtze. Even with another 70M water in the gorges there is plenty of spectacular landscape above!
The major difference between your voyage and mine may well be the amount of development that has occurred along the river banks since I was there. There are so many more bridges, and far less of the isolated housing or mines, then there was in '83.
I trust you and Hugh have another safe and life enriching experience. The hydrological engineering in China should fascinate Hugh.
WOW!!! This is amazing!!!!!
Very nice shot! Like 8
Greetings from Hungary
I could tell you a lot about this particular voyage through the Yangtze Gorges, shalom57, but suffice it to say, I found my self thinking that I was in China one moment, Thailand the next, then somewhere in Norway! Thanks. Glad you found it stunning too.
Thanks László, I appreciate such encouragement from a highly competent photographer, that you are. This was a journey on the river that can never be forgotten.
