[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

In Yuanyang, winter morning is cold, calm and peaceful the fog is condensed between the valleys of hilly rice terrace like a carpet. The fog will evaporate rapidly when the sun is high up and temperature start to rise.

The sea of clouds make the hill top like small islands, I keep the composition simple to capture 3 different hills simultaneously to show the hilly terrain of Yuanyang

I like the island on top of the first hill in particular it is surrounded by the water filled rice terrace.

Hi Tony,
The principle of three... with a twist!
Interesting capture, where the fog creates this special phenomenon... Good thing you where above it all and in the right place to capture it!
Thanks for sharing!

Tres belle photo. L'avant plan est très net et bien expsosé. On dirait vraiment que ces îles flottent dans les nuages. Bravo.

Hello Tony!
Beautiful landscape! Love you composition with three hils(islands)in softness of the clouds. Wonderful POV and colors.
Very well done!

Land is divided in 3 part with fog..that is beautiful...

The perception of the picture is excellent. However, the details are affected by excessive PP work.

Hi Tony,

Gee, you sure have a knack of being in the right place at the right time. Lovely.
