This beautiful shot, entitled “Bamboo 1” was taken by Kathleen Franklin with a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT. The beautiful variations in color on each bamboo stalk is vibrant and stunning. There are very few countries in the world that can offer incredible scenery like this bamboo forest. China’s diverse landscapes and dramatic scenery makes it a photographer’s dream destination.
This photo has an almost ethereal quality to it that captures the imagination. While this picturesque natural sanctuary may be thousands of miles from where you are, it is possible to picture yourself in the peaceful silence among the bamboo as you breath in the fresh scent of the fallen leaves and gentle breezes.
