HUANGSHAN IN WIN­TER

China Scenic - - Lens - Photo/ Hua Zhong­ming

Win­ter is a quiet sea­son in the Huangshan Moun­tains in south­ern An­hui Prov­ince—swarms of vis­i­tors have all gone home, scared off by the cold. The des­o­la­tion and the win­ter melan­choly have trans­formed the gran­ite peaks—they are now a great theater, and the pine trees, cov­er­ing their slopes, are ac­tors. Peo­ple who have been to the Huangshan Moun­tains usu­ally say that “the four sea­sons of Huangshan have their own fas­ci­na­tion, re­spec­tively, but win­ter is the most mag­nif­i­cent.” In­deed, when win­ter ar­rives, the snow-cov­ered gran­ite peaks present vis­i­tors with a real won­der­land. The “win­dow” in the photo is formed by pine branches and the tow­er­ing peak stand­ing out­side the “win­dow” shrouded in drift­ing clouds re­minds peo­ple of leg­endary ce­les­tial pav­il­ions.
