Photographer's Note

This is just a short distance from Yanshuo, and the field from my "harrowing work" shot is just off to the right. Black Dragon Bridge is the small bridge in the photo. I'm standing on the bridge visible in "harrowing work", waiting for the bus back to Yangshuo.

The man in the frame is poling down the river on a bamboo raft, often used for fishing or transport in the area.

The sky is hazy from a combination of two factors; one is air pollution, even this far out into the countryside, the other is water haze from the millions of wet rice fields. When the humidity is high the summer sky is often hazy and this area looked like this for much of the 11 days we were there.

Black Dragon Bridge has a high arch and wide steps, and when I walked across, a group of cows were coming the other way. I remember hearing that cows can't climb steps, apparently they can if the steps are wide ones.

The shot is sharpened,
