It’s a common knowledge that autumn and winter are off-seasons for tourism, but it's not the case with Jinfeng Town, Qiandao Lake, which has attracted a large number of people to come and visit just recently. Some of them are photography masters from all over the world, while others are tourists who can't resist its beauty. They, without exception, used their cameras to capture one after another beautiful scene of Jinfeng Town.

Baizhao Village of Jinfeng Town in late autumn is extremely breathtaking. Trees on the mountain are dyed red by autumn wind and are sandwiched between verdant mountain forests, forming an oil painting-like scenery.

The warm sun shines brightly on the oil-painting scenery, making the white-walled and black-tiled village particularly tranquil and peaceful.

When visiting Baizhao Village, the one thing you shouldn’t miss is to watch the sunrise. These photography masters went up to the top of the mountain at four o’clock eagerly waiting for the sun to rise.

Ginger is the main color of late autumn when the sun is warm, but with a slight coldness. At this time, the industrious villagers would grasp the opportunity to dry sweet potatoes, red pepper, etc. in the sun, adding more colors to the serene village scene.
