I’m not a landscape photographer. I just don’t have the skill for it and I can only admire the masters from afar and, once in a while, shoot what to them would be a snapshot but at least brings me nice memories of something I saw. We recently spent a few days as a family in Ping An, North of Guilin in China. The region is known for its remote villages and terraced rice paddies. Not since I went to Bali when I was 13 had I seen such verdant green, and I was compelled to shoot many landscapes, few of which are any good. I had high hopes for sunset, but it turns out the nearby mountains hid the sun very early, and sunset wasn’t what I expected. Still, I tried to make the most of the slight haze of pink on the horizon, and this is the result.
