Visit on Memory Lane — Some old pictures from HuangShan – 1989

Just this past weekend I decided to go through some old photos (from the days when digital cameras were not yet the norm 🙂 ) and – Oh, gasp – use my scanner to convert some of those to a digital format. Long story short, I came some photos from 1989 and a trip I took with friends to Huang Shan. Huang Shan being one of the most famous spots in China of course gets lots of tourists – there were plenty of people even back in 1989. At any rate, here are some beautiful shots from the mountain peaks and the sunrise on one of the mornings.

Looking at these photos, you can understand why this mountain is one of the frequent topics of many Chinese paintings…It is a beautiful place – enough said. So if you have a chance plan for a trip there. For those of you not familiar with its location – you will need to travel to Anhui province in Eastern China. I personally got to the mountain via bus (a long bus ride) from Hangzhou.
