A few more scenes from Shangri-La’s countryside

The countryside surrounding Shangri-La is a rural landscape of small farms, fields and villages divided by densely forested hills, soaring mountains and deeply carved rivers.  When I was in China last month I spent a couple of days driving the narrow roads that connect these places.  These are a selection of these scenes as I experienced them.

  1. The collection of calves, right above the cow in the bush, is my favorite! What a sweet capture.

  2. I love the lines you have found in the fields and the colour contrast between vegetation and roofs.

  4. Ouch! That’s a nasty-looking nose ring. I too like the blue roofs with a few black and red ones. Looks like a simple life, though not easy.

  5. I know there are so many stories behind the pictures but the blue roofs are so beautiful!
