Hongtudi (1) 红土地
我与张老师第一次接触是在2012年的10月尾，他带领我们完成了 香格里拉-稻城-亚丁 摄影之旅。那是一趟我毕生难忘的旅行。

Our Airasia flight landed in Kunning Changshui Airport aroung 5 pm, and was welcomed by local leader Mr. Chang.
We first met Mr. Chang way back in Octorber 2012 when he led us in our trip to Shangrila-Daocheng-Yading photograpic tour. It was a life long memorable trip which we cherished very much.
After dinner near the airport, we started our journey to Hongtudi (Red Earth), and arrived at about 11:00 pm.
We got up at 5:30 am the next morning to catch the sunrise at nearby Luoxiagou. Alas, the weather is against us. It was misty and see nothing... just manged to catch a glimpse of the village in the valley hundereds of meters down under through the drifting mist.
However, we enjoyed the morning view and took some pictures any how.
In the afternoon, the weather improved but still misty. We went for a walk at the Rapeseed fields nearby.
Hongtudi is famous for its Rapeseed fields and red soil. The dark brown soil in this area contains high iron and aluminum, and turn red under sun. September is peak tourist season when white Rapeseed plants in full bloom.
