Default Wenzhou, Zhejiang, China.

Last week I had to drive the family the near 600kms to Wenzhou (from Shanghai). The drive itself was pleasant enough and took us through some nice scenery (Shanghai is very very flat) across the longest bridge in the world (42kms/26.4 mis) and then up through the mountain ranges to Wenzhou (I've done this trip by coach ... 25 years ago ... when there were few roads and it was 18 hours of torture, and also by boat .. which no longer runs .. and took 24 hours).

My wife had business to attend to so I took our adult children up into some of the mountains around the city for the views and to see some ancient villages. The weather was pretty lousy, very overcast and occasional downpours, but it was interesting none-the-less.

Anyway if you enjoy these then there are more here : http://frogfish.smugmug.com/Other/We...979676_76FjMmM

Hope you enjoy looking at these !

I agree - the scenery is outstanding and your pictures show it off very, very well. Such a different world than mine, and yours looks so inviting after a month or two of seeing nothing but brown.

Really like #1 & #8. The various layers of mountans are very nicely captured.

These are just beautiful, Frogfish. It's fascinating to see houses perched in such precarious settings.

What a great series. I echo Harriet's comment that it's somewhat different from rural Oxfordshire.

I especially like #4 a very different form of transport
