China and The Yangtse River

K. had a trip planned to Hong Kong and I wanted to do the cruise of the Yangtse before its banks are flooded in 2003. The Three Gorges Dam will raise the water 600 feet, and up to 3 million people must be moved. It will be interesting to see during the flooding, and after, but this was the last chance to see it before.

Be sure to check out the China Panoramas as well.

Some notes on these photos. There are a lot of them. Some of the exterior ones in cities have been subjected to a lot of digital haze removal, which makes them clearer but adds noise and sometimes makes the colour seem less natural. Trust me it's better than the hazy original!

These were mostly shot with the Canon D30, and some with the Canon S40 pocket camera. Some were shot by Kathryn.
