Huangshan 黄山 (Yellow Mountain) is a jagged range of more than 70 knifelike peaks in eastern China’s Anhui province. The region's low-hanging clouds, distinctively shaped granite rocks and twisted pine trees have been subjects of numerous classical paintings and poems. Cable cars provide access to several peaks, and steep paved trails with thousands of stone steps snake past many of the range's famous viewpoints. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of China's major tourist destinations.

This was Viewed from the Yuping Cableway Station before the ascend. This looks like a scene from a classical Chinese painting.

黃山位於中國安徽省南部黃山市境內。黃山古稱黟山,南北長約40千米,東西寬約30千米。黃山素以「奇松、怪石、雲海、溫泉」四絕聞名天下。那72峰、24溪、2湖、3瀑,峰峰奇特,溪溪曲折、極盡天下山水之美,更聚名山大川之勝。黃山最高峰是蓮花峰,海拔1860米 ,位 於黃山中部、站在玉屏樓向前望去, 猶如一朵含苞初放的蓮花, 峻峭高聳, 仰天怒放。晴天從蓮花峰頂可遙見江西的廬山和似帶的長江。黃山三大主峰之一的天都峰,與蓮花峰爭雄對峙。它位於黃山東南部,人稱無上之都會, 海拔1829米、從玉屏樓至天都峰約15千米,其間有黃山最險峻的峰嶺,峰上的石樓,坡度都在70度以上;尤以中途的鯽魚背最險。

Two females are chatting non-stop, ignoring the male.

The gang-gang cockatoo (Callocephalon fimbriatum) is a parrot found in the cooler and wetter forests and woodlands of Australia, particularly alpine bushland. It is the only species placed in the genus Callocephalon. Mostly mild grey in colour with some lighter scalloping (more pronounced and buffy in females), the male has a red head and crest, while the female has a small fluffy grey crest. It ranges throughout south-eastern Australia. The gang-gang cockatoo is the faunal emblem of the Australian Capital Territory. It is easily identified by its distinctive call, which is described as resembling a creaky gate, or the sound of a cork being pulled from a wine bottle.

The name gang-gang comes from a New South Wales Aboriginal language, probably from one of the coastal languages, although possibly from Wiradjuri. It is probably an onomatopoeic name.

The gang-gang cockatoo is a grey bird with a wispy crest. The head and crest is bright red in males, but dark grey in females. The edges of feathers in underparts have edges of yellow or pink. The edges of feathers on upperarts are slightly paler grey than the rest of the feather, which makes the bird look somewhat barred. Juvenile males can be distinguished by their brighter crowns and shorter crests, but otherwise look similar to the adult female. The birds are not easily mistaken for other cockatoos, but while in flight may resemble the Galah. Gang-gangs are very social birds, but not overly noisy.(Wikipedia)

This was taken on a cold, drizzly summer afternoon. The light was lacklustre and the tides were not conducive to facilitate any Blowhole activities. Looking beyond the horizon is Tasman Sea.

The Pancake Rocks are a heavily eroded limestone area where the sea bursts through several vertical blowholes during high tides. Together with the 'pancake'-layering of the limestone (created by immense pressure on alternating hard and soft layers of marine creatures and plant sediments), these form the main attraction of the area. The base of the limestone was laid down and formed between 25 million and 35 million years ago.

Stylobedding is the name given to the process which formed the pancake layering. The current theory on how this happens is that following the limestone being buried up to kilometre below the seabed, it comes under pressure dissolution and the thinner layers of mud between the limestone are dissolved more quickly than the limestone, when exposed. This leaves the effect of the Pancake Rock layers.

Punakaiki is a small community on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand, between Westport and Greymouth. The community lies on the edge of the Paparoa National Park. The Pancake Rocks are a very popular tourist destination at Dolomite Point south of the main village.

This species is aggressive to other honeyeaters. Here this bird has just finished feeding on Grevillea 'Peaches and Cream" and moves on.

The little wattlebird (Anthochaera chrysoptera), also known as the brush wattlebird, is a passerine bird in the honeyeater family Meliphagidae. It is found in coastal and sub-coastal south-eastern Australia. (Wikipedia)

As with other honeyeaters, Little Wattlebirds feed on nectar, which is obtained using a long, brush-tipped tongue, specially adapted to probing deep into flowers. Other food includes insects, flowers, berries and some seeds. Most feeding is done while perched, but some insects are caught in mid-air. Birds may feed alone or in small to large groups. (Birdlife Australia)

This landscape belongs to the sandstone peak forest landform in Zhangjiajie, Hunan, China. Crustal uplift changed the sedimentary rock stratum into a hilly and mountainous area, then the sandstone was carved by exogenic processes like weathering and erosion into rugged rock pillars.

Zhuangjiajie is known for its breathtaking landscape of majestic mountains. It made the news after James Cameron's blockbuster Avatar movie and by the success of wingsuit skydivers flying through the hole in the needle of Tianmen Mountains. UNESCO World Heritage site Wulingyuan is within the Zhuanjiajie National Park.

張家界市, 舊稱大庸, 位於湖南省西北部。市境東臨常德市,南達懷化市,西南界湘西州,西北接湖北省恩施州。地處武陵山脈腹地,地形以山地為主。石灰岩分布廣泛,多岩溶、峰林、溶洞等地貌。澧水橫貫全境,並有漊水等支流。張家界是著名的旅遊城市,素有「奇峰三千,秀水八百」的美譽。武陵源砂岩峰林地貌景觀為世所罕見,1992年12月獲聯合國教科文組織列入世界自然遺產。
