Snow in the Park, Beijing

Chaoyang Park, Beijing 2012

As a foreigner in Beijing, the abruptness of the change of seasons always surprised me. The summer is long and hot: the winter is long and cold. Autumn and spring are colourful and fleeting.

So, this is another frozen landscape. Silent.

I love walking around the parks in China. They are well-used by locals who go there to dance or place Chinese chess (the one being favoured by women, the other favoured by men). The grounds are usually well-kept, with delicate trees being carefully wrapped in fabric to keep out the cold.

I believe I was using my Sony NEX 5n for this picture, joining two frames to make the panorama.
