Early one morning,
just as the sun was rising,
we took a bu-us to
the lovely River Li.
Back story: The previous day our tour group had debarked from its cruise on the Yangtze, visited pandas at the zoo, People’s Square, and a shopping precinct before flying from Chongqing to Guilin and taking a 90 minute bus ride from Guilin to Yangshuo. This made for a very long day which made some of us very cranky (not me!) We spent the night in Yangshuo in a typical tourist hotel. The hotels pictured below are on the other side of the street from ours, with cones of Karst behind them.
It was quite hazy and/or smoggy on the river and the distant Karst hills were quite faint. I’ve used Lightroom to add contrast and vibrance to the river scenes.
