Shuzheng Valley is a main tourist route of Jiuzhaigou Valley. It is about 14 kilometers (about nine miles) in length with over 40 lakes, representing 40% of all the lakes in Jiuzhaigou. The major scenic spots here are Double-Dragon Lake, Bonsai Beach, Reed Lake, Spark Lake, Tiger Lake, Shuzheng Waterfall, Rhinoceros Lake, and Nuorilang Waterfall, etc.
Tiger Lake, lying further up towards Shuzheng Waterfall, is 2,298 meters (about 7,539 feet) above the sea level. It is peaceful and tranquil, yet the vigor and enthusiasm cannot be hidden in the silence. The rushing water that is like falling snow of Shuzheng Waterfall is just too reminiscent of the lake's burst. There are three sayings concerning the source of its name. One is that the sound of Shuzheng Waterfall is as the tigers' roaring; the second is that in late autumn, the reflections of Five-Colored Pond forests shine upon the lake which look like the lines of tigers; the third saying is that the tigers in the mountain are fond of this lake and used to drinking the water of the lake.

I see you had great trip around the Chinese provinces. Excellent presentation of the nature in Sichuan. Just a wonderful azur color of the water, I like this scenery.TFS!
SNOOP_Chan (4277) 2014-06-24 6:04
Hello Kamila, very nice image here. the water color is almost unreal. Very fortunate to be there. The atmosphere in the composition is just great. Well done.
williewhistler (14697) 2014-06-24 6:12
you have made excellent use of the attractive light as it glows along the tips of the conifer trees and along the lakes edge giving the scene so much charm and depth.
The patterns created in the azure water are also very pleasing in an imaginative composition.
Warm regards Les.
daddo (24571) 2014-06-24 6:27
Hi Kamila, The last explanation for the name is the saddest as the Chinese have wiped out their tiger population and are behind the killing of tigers elsewhere in their erroneous belief that various parts of the tiger's anatomy makes potions for this and that, including the penis which is supposed to make men more virile. Aside from all that, the photo shows off this marvel to its fullest advantage. Superb light and glorious colours.Creative composition with nice touches in the immediate foreground. Best wishes. Klaudio.
photoray (12689) 2014-06-24 6:28
Beautiful view of Tiger Lake, the clear turquoise blue waters with Shuzheng Waterfall cascading into it, and the immense forested hill backdrop.
If perhaps not a tiger drinking here, I can see other animals.
And all 3 legends seem appropriate.
dkmurphys (50218) 2014-06-24 6:42
Spectacular colors of the water. I like this view along the river, very spectacular.
CLODO (30706) 2014-06-24 6:43
You've discovered an enchanting place: a green lake in the pine forest which cristal water seems so transparent under a lateral light.
Want to go there!
pajaran (53000) 2014-06-24 6:48
Dobar dan, popodne.
Interesantan tekst Shuzheng Valley sa opisom, lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto, lepe boje.
Lepo popodne i sve njabolje.
Good afternoon, this afternoon.
An interesting text Shuzheng Valley with a description, a nice view and a moment ...
Good time recording, contrast and perspective, nice place indicated, beautiful colors.
Nice afternoon and all the best.
SnapRJW (31613) 2014-06-24 7:14
Hello Kamila - I'm not at all surprised that this location is on a main tourist route. Look at the breathtaking clarity and colour of the water. A truly wonderful scene and despite what you say about its popularity your shot conveys the impression of an isolated and undeveloped wilderness area. Pretty light and a well composed and managed shot make this a delight to see.
holmertz (42273) 2014-06-24 8:00
It's nice to finally see another one of your photos. This is a stunning view with fabulous turquoise water and a very pretty waterfall. I like the rhythm provided by the scattered sunny and shady areas.
Didi (57492) 2014-06-24 8:31
Good game with lights and colour management
Very romantic place
ikeharel (58921) 2014-06-24 8:43
I am short of words to describe this beauty, a fine turquoise water, shining under the side light, and a white waterfall on the right bank.
DOF, clarity and the sight itself - all culminate wonderrfully on photo.
Nicou (124229) 2014-06-24 8:47
quelle pureté de l'eau sueprbe ce bleu clair dégradé et en fond les cascades d'eau quelle vue et décor sueprbe.
Bravo et amitié
cornejo (32746) 2014-06-24 9:51
Hi Kamila, very good picture of this beautiful turquoise lake, very well composed and captured this beautiful image with good sharpness, depth, pretty light, color and quality. Excellent and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
PaulVDV (23021) 2014-06-24 10:45
Marvellous colours of the water! Absolutely wonderful!
And the splendor of the green lake is further emphasized by the rather dark mountainslope at the other side.
Yes, Jiuzhaigou is an amazing place.
Best regards, Paul
emka (80912) 2014-06-24 11:32
Witaj Kamilka, gdzie może byc jezioro z wodą tak przejrzysta i o takim kolorze? Tylko w Jiuzhaigou. Piekne zdjecie z fascynujacego miejsca. Tak mi zal, że miałam tam marny aparat, który na dodatek odmówił posłuszeństwa. A tak tam bylo pieknie.
Świetny kadr, sliczne kolory i ostrośc jak brzytwa.
ourania (32825) 2014-06-24 12:08
this place is fantastic and I appreciate very much your work in presenting it so effectively in a photo. Your composition is very elegant with delightful dynamism and a well balanced arrangement of eye-catching elements and complementary details. The beauty and purity of this place are portrayed in a captivating way. I like the fine palette of colours, the movement and the transparency of the water, the brilliant light and even the shadows. Congratulations and thank you!
I hope everything is fine in Lefkada and that you still have some free time for TE and for taking photos.
All the best, have a great evening,

une magnifique image avec des couleurs et une lumière remarquables.Bon cadrage avec les branches en avant-plan.

I like this view along the river

chawax (19532) 2014-06-24 13:16
Wonderful scenery ! The water has fantastic colours and the landscape around is very beautiful, with a very nice light. I love how you used the trees to make a natural frame for the picture.
chrislo (4155) 2014-06-24 13:18
What a beautiful area ! I like your picture very much. The composition is fine, with the cascading falls and the marvellous colours of the lake, surrounded by wonderful nature, leading into the picture. The whole atmosphere it generates is wonderful, the scenery has something magic. You really have captured the scene beautifully.
Silvio1953 (124653) 2014-06-24 13:19
Ciao Kamila, great view of lovely place, fantastic colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
PiotrF (10082) 2014-06-24 15:02
Troche czekaliśmy na kolejna prezentacje, ale było warto. Swietne miejsce i swietny widok turkusowego jeziora. Gdzies zza gorskiej grani wyszlo slonce, które pieknie podświetliło zarówno tafle jeziora jak i musnęło otaczające je drzewa. Jesienna kolorystyka, moim zdaniem najciekawsza przy takich pejzażach, tez jest tu znakomita. Ciekawa, interesujaca praca
ricardomattos (4659) 2014-06-24 16:33
A breathtaking view. An image that conveys strength and serenity at the same time. The colors of the water and the surroundings are wonderful. One of the best things about photography is being able to retain moments like this. This is almost a dream. I praise God for having made beauties like this.
fabbs99 (16739) 2014-06-24 22:11
Great photography of the Tiger lake.Fascinating composition with great exposure, splendid light and wonderful warm colors. Very well done, TFS.

As usual, a great photo.
Nice touch of colors, including the green and blue, of different hues and shades.
Nature at its best!
Have a great Day!
timecapturer (49288) 2014-06-25 5:02
this place looks just heavenly. When water takes on these turquoise tones it looks so inviting and beautiful. A glorious setting captured perfectly.
danos (87923) 2014-06-25 5:04
very nice this panoramic view of the Tiger lake with the small waterfalls on the right to create even more efective in the scene.The different colour tints of the surface of the lake, enhance the beauty of it even more.
macjake (57432) 2014-06-25 5:07
I think this will be another one of those successful photos for you :)

Bonjour, chère Kamila,
Un grand merci de nous faire voyager d'une aussi belle façon à travers ces compositions qui relèvent presque d'un conte de fées.
La beauté des lieux est superbe.
Très bonne journée et félicitations pour le résultat.
abmdsudi (44308) 2014-06-25 7:58
A delightful shot that fits to grace the cover of any holiday brochure.. Brilliant nature wonder with that stunning turquoise water looks so welcoming and joy to view! it makes even more captivating plus the mouth watering reflection make my brain freeze on this one! It's so beautifully composed full of rich tones with lovely touch of autumnal colours, quality light, shades and shadows. The contrasty cascading water holds the picture perfectly together as a strong pointer. Gorgeous capture, My compliments.
dip (23640) 2014-06-25 8:00
a really wonderful image with amazing colours,good point of view and excellent lighting,
very well done,thanks for sharing,
carlo62 (34490) 2014-06-25 23:55
mi piace come è stata messa in evidenza l'acqua, sia per quanto riguarda il colore, sia per la dinamicità del movimento. Tutto questo è reso ancor più evidente dal contrasto con il resto del paesaggio, la parte alta della foto è scura e statica e la differenza con l'acqua è molto evidente. Sembra di sentire anche il rumore....
trevormoffiet (3112) 2014-06-26 5:00
An impressive, well-composed image. I love the way you have captured the light. That turquoise water is something to behold.
Oceania (5050) 2014-06-26 6:08
Deep turquoise water is so clear. And running waterfalls are on the one side. This wonderful picture shows a place like paradise found on earth. I totally enjoy it.

Kolorystyka wody powalajaca.
Ladnie skomponowany kadr.

Waaw Kamila!! A new fantastic pic from your trip,this time different with this incredible water,what a colors,what a sharpness and what a great spectacle made by the nature and your hands,i like it..a lot! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano
jcpix (13704) 2014-06-26 17:09
Can I claim this as "Human Lake," because I would sure like to take full advantage of its stunning beauty...be it for a drink of cool water, perhaps a nice swim, or...as in your case, taking its picture? :)
A lovely display of nature, no matter the namesake, and you've put it on a grand display with this result. Love the aqua colored foreground...if we didn't know any better, this could almost pass for a tropical location. But alas, the trees give it away. lol
A well constructed picture which uses the light and color to the best possible magnitude. No wonder this has been a popular one. Enjoy the new day. All the best.
rychem (24598) 2014-06-26 21:45
Kolorystyka tego jeziora jest niesamowita, a sceneria jak z bajki, super
shreya2000 (1244) 2014-06-26 23:22
Excellent picture with great natural atmosphere. The clarity is superb. Composition is great. I like it very much.
thanks for sharing.
patpatch (1601) 2014-06-27 5:34
The colour of the water is just incredible.The turquoise blue looks like an exotic sea ,at the Maldives or something like that.I like the contrast between the brightness of the sea and the darkness of the trees in the background.Sure,I'd like to sweem in this lake(to be honest,it depends the temperature of the water).
Very nice scenery.
Cricri (108059) 2014-06-27 8:24
Un paysage de toute beauté, des couleurs merveilleuses, une cascade petite et attirante, très belle image

ChrisJ (100130) 2014-07-12 2:55
An area of China I would love to visit one day. Love the turquoise water and waterfall at right. Good sharpness, color, saturation and framing. I like the light falling on the bg conifer trees. The fg branches add depth and frame the scene well. Tfs!
annjackman (20133) 2014-07-14 1:59
I love this for the superb quality of light. The rich colours of the water and the hazy BG create a wonderful atmosphere. I like the line of colourful trees at the waters edge with the darker green of the conifers behind. The cascading water is a real bonus.
A super image.
Kind Regards, Ann
adores (38202) 2014-07-15 18:07
What a place! The tonalities of the water are amazing and the sun light reflecting makes it wonderful. It must be a very big area to visit!

Wow! Splendid place with fantastic emerald water and nice light. I like a lot!
