Guilin, China by photographer Kyon.J

Haze and fog make mountains in Guilin, China look downright dreamy
The city of Guilin, China, offers visitors spectacular views of the rows of mountains at any time of day. Photographer Kyon.J perches atop the mountains to capture the extraordinary sights of the onlooking mountains, supplemented by the elegant winding of the Li River. With fog and haze off in the distance early morning, the landscape takes on a dreamy, surreal look. God rays break through from between the peaks, while during sunset, the mountains appear almost apocalyptic.
