Reflection of Golden Poplar Trees in a Lake

Qing Yang

Chapel Hill, United States

Artist's Description

Diversifolious Poplar trees have been dubbed as one of the earth’s few “living fossils.” People in Inner Mongolia of China describe the longevity of the trees by saying that the Poplar trees can live for a thousand years and after they die, they will stand for another thousand years before falling; yet, it takes another thousand years for their trunks to decompose. The forest in Inner Mongolia is one of the world’s three remaining areas of Diversifolious Poplars, which makes it very popular among naturalists, photographers and tourists, especially in autumn when the leaves turn into golden yellow.
