The Li Jiang



Prior to living in China, I thought Chinese painting was wonderfully imaginative. Especially those mountains. Then, my first year, for Spring Festival (Chinese New Year's) we traveled. The picture above is of the Li river. I still think Chinese painting is quite skilful, but I also think it's rather more realistic than it's given credit for. . . .

What a gorgeous photo, my friend. Those mountains sure look like they jumped right out of a painting!

Happy Thanksgiving
