Absolutely beautiful photos from China

I recently came across some incredible photos of Chinese landscape. China is such a huge and strange (to me) country that these photos really caught my imagination. The culture, and clearly the landscape, is so alien to me.

The only real insight I have into Chinese life was the book Wild Swans which describes 3 generations of women from a single family through the 20th century. Very cool book. I always find it very interesting to see how different other cultures can be, even though they are driven by the same basic human qualities.

Anyway, enough bla-bla. Enjoy these great pics and here is a link to the page where some more can be found. I’m sure that some have (at least) been color-retouched but they are still great.
