From a recent journey to the old villages around Huangshan (yellow mountains) of China's Anhui province, I was utterly inspired with the landscape, the feeling of calm that blankets the area and the mystical sense of being so far away from it all.

It made me think a lot about the nature of water -- reflections are abundant in this place -- and the magic of seeing the world repeated, maybe in order for us to think twice.

A place I will happily return to.
