Colorful, wonderful and playful autumn.. Of course with holidays!!

Autumn in China is by far the best time to be here. The temperatures throughout the country are milder without the extremes you can experience in winter and summer, and without the wetn ess you’ll experience in the spring. While the days are getting shorter, you can have warmish daytime weather right into November in the north and central parts of China and in the south, you’ll find it can still be quite warm.

Having at least 140 sections open to visitors, Huangshan is a major tourist destination in China.

Huangshan Citychanged its name from Tunxi in 1987 in order to promote Huangshan tourism.

 In 2007, for instance, more than 1.5 million tourists visited the mountain.


The foot of the mountain is linked by rail and by air to Shanghai,and also is accessible from cities such as Hangzhou and Wuhu.

As of 1990, there were more than 50 kilometers of footpaths providing access to scenic areas for visitors and staffers of the facilities.

 Today there are also cable cars that tourists may use to ride directly from the base to one of the summits.

 Throughout the area there are hotels and guest houses that accommodate overnight visitors,many of whom hike up the mountains, spend the night at one of the peaks to view the sunrise, and then descend by a different route the next day.

The area is classified as a AAAAA scenic area by the China National Tourism Administration.

Flame over the evening sky… Nature’s color cocktail!!

If you have ever noticed, the horizon appears awesome with the multicolored shadows on the sky.

As the sun is biding Good Bye, it emanates a lovely cocktail of colors ranging from yellow, golden yellow, red, purple, blue and many more

But this happens for a very small time during the dusk, its prominently seen over the mountains or the sea

I had tried to capture such lovely natural colors which the

 horizon reflects.

i always loved the brilliance of these colors which disappears soon once the sun is set.
