The curves of Yuanyang
I’m not a natural landscape photographer. I don’t have the patience, or the penchant for early mornings. Or a tripod. But Yuanyang, near the Vietnamese border in the far south of China, has some wonderful landscapes which it would be rude not to take pictures of. I even got up at dawn to take the one above.
Even when I’m trying to take landscape pictures, I can’t resist including people.

Hey, you’re actually in China! Great photo’s and love the one with the farmer best.. Obviously I’m very, very jealous of you being there…. Enjoy it!
Thanks, Nicole. I’m actually now in Laos. The blog’s a bit behind, as I couldn’t access WordPress in China. So more pictures of China coming soon…

Incredible looking area. Is this pretty much all rice farming?
Yes, these are all rice terraces.
These are beautiful.
Thanks, Carissa, it was a beautiful place to visit.
Were there mosquitoes?
Agreed! I couldn’t imagine getting such perfect images while fighting them off. Thank you for getting up early, so I could see something so stunning all the way over here in Iowa 🙂 I am grateful for the learning.
amazing captures … stunning..
Very very very nice shots.
Stunning visuals, Jon. Absolutely stunning!
wow for someone that is not patient to take landscape pictures these came out really nice. It reminds me of a archeological map. I agree with you it would be rude not to take pictures of these gorgeous landscapes and not sharing it. Thank you for sharing the pictures by the way!!!
Jon, these are beautiful shots…landscape photography must be in your genes somewhere as those shots were beautiful. I just visited Dongchuan, Yunnan a couple weeks ago and wished I could have squeezed in a couple more days to visit Yuanyang…and from the look of your photos it definitely would have been worth it. Nice shots!
these really took my breath away 🙂
These landscape shots are mesmerising!
