Red Brick Road, Lijiang China


I was up early in the morning to capture the sunrise over the rooftops in the town of Lijiang located in the Yunnan Province of China.  This old part of town had been 'refurbished' for tourists,  sporting canals, tourist shopping, and red lanterns.  However it did give a look into what villages in China could have looked like centuries ago.  By getting up early, I was able to capture the streets free of tourists and street performers and capture this sullen scene.  You can view other scenes from that early morning walk which allowed me see the 'real' town.
