    Sea of Red in Panjin, China


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     rachelgeesa traveled to Panjin, China, a couple weeks ago to see the Red Beach, which gets its name from local seaweed. The seaweed grows during the spring and summer and remains green, but when autumn rolls around, it turns a fiery red. 'I was skeptical about actually seeing this 'sea of red' that I had heard of so many times. Once we finally arrived, the view was amazing! The contrasts between the red ground, white cranes, and green ground were profound!' she said. Her photo was featured as CNN's Travel Photo of the Day for October 23, 2012.

    Flying into Shenyang, China, I had one goal in mind: to see the Red Beach. During the two and a half hour drive to Panjin, China, I was a bit worried because nothing was red. After arriving to the site, purchasing tickets, jumping on a tram, and trekking down a path, I finally found the amazing sea of red that I have dreamt of seeing. In my eyes, it was "Calm. Beautiful. Peaceful. Perfect."
