Photographer's Note

A quiet spot early in the morning at 'Mirror Lake' in Juzhaigou Valley or 'Valley of Nine Villages' in Tibetan language. At an elevation of about 2400m asl in Western Sichuan, it's so tranquil something that I could sit and stare at for hours. The pristine deep blue water of the alpine pool has a very high concentration of calcium carbonate, and their water is extremely clear that the bottom is often visible even at high depths.

Just a grab shot - I know it's not the best of capture from my little camera....

Setting: 18 mm, 1/60 sec, F8, ISO Raw 200, 0830 hrs & polarised
