China - Longji by lux69aeterna China - Longji by lux69aeterna
The Longji rice terraces in China, one of the most epic landscapes i've seen! Longji or the dragon's backbone received its name because the rice terraces resemble a dragon's scales, while the summit of the mountain range looks like the backbone of the dragon.

Nikon D300, Nikon 17-55mm, B + W UV filter.

Beautiful perspective and scenery. I love the light which adds the nice warm tones, and the background misty atmosphere.

This is stunning, Sébastien. I love that the shadows provide such a lovely contrast on the rice terraces.
Very beautiful.
Epic is a great word to describe it.

Yes, looks like dragon scales indeed! Very beautiful and peaceful :)

In the north of Portugal, in Douro, we have a similar effect of the "dragon scales" but with vineyards along Douro River

I'd like to see the Portuguese dragon scales too :) And of course, try the wine as well :p

This place is indeed very peaceful, only 700 inhabitants, although the Chinese tourists can be noisy... But very different compared to the other places we visit during the tour... Beijing 16 million people, Shanghai 24 million, Xi'an 8,4 million etc. So being here, brings me some rest :) I'm working in Thailand now, it is more quiet :)
