Taihu Photos: Visions of the Lake

This gallery of photos is not really about the lake itself but about surprising and inspiring things I saw on the nine-day trip. They are loosely grouped together with a little commentary where appropriate.


Somehow this photo became a symbol of the entire experience for me. I took it shortly after leaving Taihu Paradise, Zhejiang side. Empty highway, nothing around, but here is this wonderful park bench waiting for the right two people to sit on it.
