This location is not exact in the GPS. When you go into the main park of Zhangjiajie, there is a path that goes straight and one that goes to the right. This is the one to the right. About a quarter mile into the walk, you come across this place.
I worked on this photo in the HDR Video Tutorial at www.StuckInCustoms.com/hdr-video-tutorial . this was a good example of one of those mixed-light situations. It’s so easy and wonderful to experience in person, but so difficult to capture otherwise.
I took this in the middle of a serious trek in Zhangjiajie, deep in the southern part of China. It was one of the hardest single-day treks of my life. This part in the lowland forest was not too tough because it was relatively flat. There were little path problems here and there, but nothing too major. Most of the problems involved walking up and down these bitches. I probably should not call them that, but, honestly, when you are walking up on down them, it’s one of the words that keeps popping into your mind.
In a single day, I walked up and down those things twice, each time passing through these lowland forests… this was the calm before the storm of the ascent, and this little temple brought me some temporary peace.
