Photo of the day: Early Moonrise


All this week, Radii is posting a photo essay by Edward Evenson of snaps from outside the buzz and noise of the Chinese megacity. Rural landscapes for a quick daily moment of serenity…

This shot was captured on a small bridge connecting the northern and southern walls of a canyon about an hour outside of Lin Hai. The bridge, stretching more than a football field in length, provided some fantastic views of the canyon and surrounding mountain. However, at the moment I spotted the small facade-like structure at the end of the bridge I knew I wanted to capture it. I have always enjoyed the symmetry and minimalism of these structures. Its location also reminded me of a scene from the fantasy novels I read as a child: a nondescript portal that leads to a mythical world, placing the viewer mere steps away from adventure (or maybe I’m just a nerd).
