When the sun goes down

北疆-五彩滩-日落额尔齐斯河

 

North Xinjiang, China - Day 6

 

It is time to go home. This is the last shot I took befor the end of the day.

 

This place is called "Colorful Beach" - not really a beach but a wind-formed geological wonder (Yardang landform in geological term) near Irtysh river @ north Xinjiang province of China. This is a famous place to watch sunset. I was standing on the last viewpoint alone with houndreds of tourists, to see if I would be lucky enough to vitness a few horses or camels crossing the bridge on the river, during the perfect moment of the sunset. My luck didn't come. The sunset is still spectacular regardless.
