Miancimu Dawn by Dee-T Miancimu Dawn by Dee-T
Miancimu
Yunnan Province, China

In the far North West of Yunnan province lies the Kawakarpo Mountain range which straddles the border of Yunnan and Tibet. It also goes by the name of Kawagebo, Meilixueshan just to confuse matters. One of the reasons for its fame is that every clear dawn, the tips of the mountains catch the dawn light in breath taking fashion.
This mountain, Miancimu is 700m shorter than Kawakarpo but probably more attractive to photograph.
I took this shot about 200m down from the tourist platform where the view was just as good and free. -5 degrees outside made for alot of pushups and squats to keep warm while waiting. The image is 2 shots stitched in photoshop.
