Photographer's Note

9.32 a.m. - I am still at Jiuzhaigou. Legend has it that a goddess was frightened by a devil and dropped her precious mirror causing it to break into many pieces. These fragments later turned into the 118 lustrous lakes there. However, the scientific account relates that millions of years ago, a clash of two geological structures on the Qinghai-Tibet plateau took place, forming the travertine banks, terraced lakes, waterfalls and cascades. Which ever version you believe, you are sure to be enchanted by its glory and beauty.
This is the Nuorilang falls, a mythical beauty. I know it will be best to slow down the shutter a bit more, but this is where I met with the limitation of my camera. Now I wished for an SLR. The smallest aperture is f8 and anything slower is an overexposure as the day was bright. I did however, reduced the EV to -0.66. Maybe someone out there can give me a hint or tricks as to how to manage this better.
