Thank you, that was stunning. The most beautiful pines I have ever seen have been Chinese natives.

Hi, did you see that pine in the end, coming out of a rock horizontally :)

Wow, their Mtns look so different from ours, steeper, with no soil on top for several yards/feet. I can't believe those observation deck/bridges. I could never get out on them, I have vertigo when I get up high like that. When I was younger, no problem. Maybe (probably) Bonsai was started after seeing these pines growing out of rock. There ids a pine close to me that is growing out of a rocky crevice and has been about 6 ft high since I can remember, at least 30 years. I'll try to remember to take a pic of it.

Your summary is accurate. People have to see the scene to understand the ink and water paintings, for example by the renowned artist Chang Dai-Chen (May 10, 1899 - April 2, 1983 link Wiki).

Below is a section of Chang Dai-Chen's painting. See if you can figure out what the things are in it:)

I see a Pine tree and other plants I can only guess would be Rhody's or other pines. Of course the mountains and what to me looks like a blurry dragon to the right. That's probably not what it really is though.

It is supposed to be art so nothing for sure :) I don't see any dragon though. Those might be the lichens on rock.

I am not sure what these are. I am guessing that it cannot be a magnolia.

It is near a camp area. There are a lot of flowers near and far in the image. The flowers are quite large.

Some of the rhododendrons look ancient. They are beautiful and look so healthy. Guess they have everything they need - filtered sunlight, a misty atmosphere, and maybe the higher elevation. Wish I could grow some like that.

That is (Sino)calycanthus chinensis.

Oh, the Rhodie is named after Lushan.

BTW, the music in the videos has been changed.

I have always chosen free royalty music from google. After posting here, someone still turns me in as their perceived "violation of copy-right". Gladly, youtube cannot ban my video from any country because, after all, I used one from their free music list. Let 'em cry out loud.
