I hiked for a long time that day on Fang Mountain and began to be surprised at how many interesting places this lesser-known mountain hid. I have never been very far away, and I have only visited a handful of mountains in my travel experience.
This caused my interest in the lesser known mountains to continue. For example, the cherry blossom valley I passed by just now – it was winter and the blossom season had long passed – a large area of long faded cherry trees still gave me a lot of imagination.
These cows don’t seem to understand the plight of a photographer. They were always on the move, scattered as it was. This forced me to recompose the picture, several times over.
However the final shot was going to be much less effective. The standing water on the ground and the muddy miscellaneous colors detracted from the overall effect of the picture and prevented me from achieving a glazed shadow effect. Hey, that’s it!
