16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Pan Gu Epoch-Making

Taken at Huanghua, China with f/6.3, 1/640 s. In the early morning of September 3, while I was waiting for the sunrise as usual, all of a sudden, a beautiful scene of Pan Gu epoch-making myth (Chinese traditional legend of “The Beginning of the World”) appeared in the sky. Pan Gu, the first man,who is said to have come forth from chaos, shaped the earth by chiselling out valleys and stacking up mountains. I was lucky enough to capture this shot.
