Early Spring in Pingle
Sichuan Province, China
This old town, surrounded by mountains, bamboo thickets and tree groves, has a long history and rich traces of culture. After the rains, Pingle is bathed in sunlight and smiles reflect in the puddles. The alley next to the river seems to remain still and silent in its own way whereas the river is rumbling, where everything seems so lovely even a tuft of grass can make you stop to admire its pleasant aroma. The water in spring carries an air of arrogance with dazzling brilliance rolling in front of your eyes. When calming down, either the vague flowery scent or new leaves of the banyan trees will make you feel the beauty and wonder of life.
