    Fantastic stuff, thanks.

    On a different note, what is it about the geology of China that produces
    these fantastic landscapes, almost like something out of a Roger Dean
    painting?

    I think you'll find the distinctive terracing is not natural, but man
    made.

    If ever there were such things as the perfect subjects for Fujichrome
    Velvia, here they are.

    The strange looking hills in many of the images, which I think Paul was
    referring to, are characteristic of limestone karst scenery and are
    certainly not man made. These particular ones are near Guilin in southern
    China.

    If you've got Google Earth (http://earth.google.com/) go to 25° 0'48.63"N
    110°27'25.12"E

    In some of the pictures you can see the cormorant fishermen on their bamboo
    rafts. The cormorants are trained to dive and catch fish and have metal
    rings round their necks to prevent them swallowing.

  10. Brilliant, if slightly oversaturated colours.

    Some newsgroup contributors appear to have confused
    the meaning of "discussion" with "digression".
