Re: The Hike
My Chinese isn't very good Bobo, but I think the lettering says 'Warning - Keep clear these bamboos are poisonous'.
With that leaf in the wire, I suspect there was a slight gap between the strands close to the barbs and the wind exactly positioned a falling leaf. And considering the number of leaves on an average tree the statistics are probably similar to winning a lottery, but someone always does.
Certainly an interesting image though, and with pleasing colour.
You have plenty of colour in the last one but the trouble with many shots like this is simply that you are converting a three dimensional scene into a two dimensional photo. So unless there are suitably placed objects it always tends to look a bit 'flat'.

Re: The Hike
Hehe, no bamboo is not poisonous.
But that particular trail has some crazy person frequenting it. Not sure about now but a couple of years ago dogs used to die for unknown reasons after walking around these parts. Latter it was found that someone was putting down poisoned food. They never caught him but owners now always have the dogs on leash.
The last one - the only thing available was the tree on the right. One day I will get it right!
