Character Development

Photograph by Patrick Quinn, National Geographic Your Shot

Amateur opera singers transform themselves into their characters before a performance in China. “They all have day jobs and are extremely busy, but they have a passion for Hainan Opera,” writes Patrick Quinn, who submitted this picture to the recent Your Shot assignment Transitions: As the World Turns. “[This is] where they paint on masks and become someone else.”

Red Beach – Panjin, China

with one comment

Falamos-lhe da Red Beach, na província de Panjin, uma praia em que o vermelho é a cor que reina. Na verdade esta não possui areia, mas algas. E é graças a elas, que a praia se torna única.

Segundo o site, ‘Nômades Digitais, as algas começam verdes, como as que estamos acostumados a ver, e “crescem durante os meses de abril e maio, mantendo a cor até ao verão. Mas quando o outono chega, a magia acontece, e estas algas ganham um tom que começa no laranja, passa para o rosa e acaba no vermelho”.

Para proteger a Red Beach, as autoridades impedem visitas ao local a partir das 17h e nem toda a área está disponível para visita.

Sand is probably the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about beach. However, this is not the case with the Panjin Red Beach in China, which is, actually, red, and not covered in sand at all. Such phenomena is caused by a type of sea weed Sueda. It starts growing during April and May, then stays green during the summer, but starts turning vividly red in autumn.

Sunset at Xingping

Photograph by James Bian, National Geographic Your Shot

The sun sets over the mountaintops in Xingping, China, in this photo by Your Shot member James Bian.

“Guilin and the Li River are famous for their beautiful landscape,” he writes. “Visiting this area [has been] my dream. Before the trip, I selected a couple of locations to photograph sunrise and sunset, and Laozhai mountain was one of them. On a clear afternoon, I hiked to the peak an hour before sunset on a trail built and maintained by a Japanese gentleman (which saves a lot of energy for photographers). The view was overwhelming, with the Li River making a 180-degree turn right under my feet. I spent most of my time focusing on a wide-angle view until I realized that leaving the river out and just zooming in on the peaks and sun was a much better composition.”

Bian’s picture recently appeared in the Your Shot Daily Dozen.
