Guilin (China)

The word Guilin inevitably transcend our mind to associate with the overflowing belt of bizarre mountains which are magically rounded at the top. These incredible limestone rock formations are actually found in the outskirt of Guilin. Yangshuo is one of the popular location to soak up the majestic sight, and provides inspiration for many poets and artists.

Some fishermen and cormorants pictures will be accompanied with this set as cormorant fishing is synonymous with Guilin.


Can you imagine the mountains are your backyard


Shops and some sort of bazaar within the mountainous area

Fishermen with cormorants as co-partners are a common sight along the Li River


A proud cormorant. Kidding. Description will be a misnomer. These birds can dive to great length and submerge for a long period of time to catch their prey with the hope of self consuming. But the ring encircled the bird’s neck will prevent it from swallowing, and the owner will claim the catch. The enslaved cormorant is destined to work for life for his owner. Poor thing.


A fisherman thumping the water to attract fishes for cormorant an easier catch


At rest

    This is another wonderful set.

    My favorite of the batch is the magical mountains at sunrise - the light is amazing.
    The shot with bird in foreground while still showing background fishing and more birds is a second favorite.
