Horizontal lines-Stone stairs on Taishan

A man climbing stairs on Mount Tai in Shandong Province, China.
My son on the stairs, I stopped to take a picture (and catch my breath!)

More lines, horizontal this time from Mount Tai (Taishan)’s stairs. This flight is smooth and regular.

Vegetable greenhouses and power lines in Shandong Province, China

This scene is representative of Shandong Province, there are lots and lots and lots of these green houses. Shandong is the fruit and vegetable basket of China…with a fair bit of industry thrown in.
