The Sze Chuan people like to call Xing Du Qiao as "Heaven for photography enthusiast". After visiting the place I could argue a single bit about such claim. Photo was taken on top of a hill. The light peaking through the mountains was truly magnificent. Initially I thought capturing the scene without the buffalos would already gave an excellent shot, when I walk further down the hill, I saw this group of yak heading towards the huts, how lucky I was to have spotted them. Without hesitation, I ran as fast as I could to my spot and waited. With my trembling fingers and feeling a little short of breath, I was glad my effort pays off.
