Michael Kenna, A Taste of Paradise

“I walked for two days,” explains Michael Kenna. “The sun shined, then came the clouds, bringing along rain and reduced vision. Then, the clouds generously opened, revealing the most majestic view, the famous sea of clouds. They moved, sank, rolled, hid, and then let massive granite sculptures, rocky walls, trees, and valleys appear. A taste of Paradise. Magic granted, magic taken away. That’s how Huangshan is, unpredictable and uncontrollable, like life.”
