Wudang Revisited--The View

After settling into our hotels --each year I came to think of them as Camp Wudang -- we took walkabouts in the area. It was breathtakingly authentic.

Below, a closer view of the temple seen in the distance above, one of many in the area.

Can there be any doubt how the tradition of shui mo (ink and water) shan shui (mountains and water) painting was conceived?
These scenes inspire my own feeble attempts.

Above, a copy from some ancient dynasty piece.

This was inspired by my memories of the temple above.
