CHINESE LANDSCAPE

China is starting to look more like other places, as limited access highways and skyscraper skylines become the norm. Traditional Chinese landscape is retreating to preserves. These are often islands of tranquility.

Beauty may be a cultural prejudice, but few people would find most of these images displeasing, regardless of their background:

that last pic is amazing - Now, that is DENSITY!!

That level of unit density is too much for even me.

Is the ground permanently dark??
