The Monkey Watching the Sea

The Monkey Watching the Sea

The Chinese have a fascination with rocks, and an even greater fascination with naming them. I guess that's to be expected when a country's history is over 2,000 years long, and people have been visiting and naming the sights within that country for as many years. The small rock near the middle of the frame is The Monkey Watching the Sea; I actually think it looks like a small, hunched over monkey looking out into the sea of clouds. Huangshan is one of the most incredible areas in China for landscape photography, a welcome reward after the hours of hiking required to get around the mountain.
