Worth a Thousand Words: Photos of 2011 Posted by on Dec 30, 2011 in Uncategorized

Following our 2011 Year in Review post I thought it would be fitting to reflect back on the best images from our blog in 2011. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so without further ado, here’s China (from the Silk Road to Simatai) through my camera lens:

The Simatai (司马台) Greatwall at sunset on a frigid January eve.


The High Plains of Inner Mongolia (内蒙古)

Ruins of Dunhuang (敦煌)


Yardang National Park.


Shaolin Cemetery Garden.


Longmen Buddhist Grottoes (龙门石窟).


Monks of the Shaolin Monastery (少林寺).


The Forbidden City (故宫)


The Summer Palace (颐和园) on a beautiful July day.

Hangzhou's West Lake (杭州西湖).

Thousand Island Lake (千岛湖).

LongQing Gorge (龙庆峡)

798 Art District, Beijing (七九八艺术区).

It’s been a pleasure travelling through China and snapping photos of all its beauty and glory. Thanks for following. Have a Happy New Year (新年快乐)!
