Visual bits from the Henan Photo TripLuckily we are not on the first flight in the morning. The flight we are on was delayed. The airline put us to a nearby guest house for rest and send us lunch boxes. Lily and I have used our lunch in the restaurant next to the guest house. This restaurant provide wifi connection to their customer. So, Lily and I chat for a while and browse the internet for a while to wait for the flight to resume.
When we are brought back to the airport for boarding, the sun have already set.
The next morning, we went to a theme park based on the Riverside Scene at Qingming Festival. It is build to simulate the architecture of the Song Dynasty. As we have already missing the night show due to flight delay, we have to grep our opportunities while we are here. The following is the Almond tea and pear drinks we have in the park.

We arrived at Lou Yang. The Real Difference Restaurant is crowded with people. But their dishes looks good and taste good. No wonder the business there is so hot.
The first shooting location the next morning is the Long位Gang Caves. As Lou Yang is hosting the Peony Festival and attracted a lot of tourist at that time, the Long Gang is crowed with people that morning.

We went for the Peony exhibition in the afternoon. We are getting lucky as the lighting is special at that time. The garden is unevenly lit by the sun.
After shooting the Peony, we went to Jiao Zuo. We have plenty of time that day. When we arrived at the Hotel, the sky is still bright.
That night, we went to AWU to have our dinner. The cuisine in AWU is equally fine as compare with Real Difference.
We take a short walk along the streets of Jiao Zuo after dinner.
Anywhere you could not find McDonads and KFC?!
The next day, we went to the Yun Tai National Park. This morning our destination is the Zhu Yu Peak.

We continue and trip in the afternoon in Quan Pu Gorge. Shooting river and water falls.
This is the last day of our trip, we went to the Yun Tai National Park again and visited the Red Stone Gorge.
The Red Stone Gorge is still swamp by tourist.
Endless stream of tourist brings endless supplies of garbage.

The biggest take away for me in this trip is knowing that the flowers from a Firmianacan be so beautiful.
We were back at the entrance of the park waiting for our driver to pick us up. A veiw of the hills we have walked on yesterday.
We have our lunch in Zheng Zhou before went for the airport.
Last but not least, the vehicle for this trip.
Finally, the flight back to Shenzhen was on time and we completed our pleasant journal as plan.Henan, Photo Trip, 摄影旅游, 河南
