At the end of the bus ride in Jiuzhaigou Park, you will arrive at Long Lake (approximatly 3,100 meters) It is the most splendid lake in Valley. It is opposite Erbo Mountain, which is covered with luxuriant forests, and the Biyaogonggai Lake, which is the highest lake in Jiuzhaigou (elevation over 4,000 meters). The melted snow from the South Peak and the waters of surrounding mountain streams and brooks all find their way into the lake, which has no exit. The excess water either vaporizes or seeps into the earth. In spring and autumn Long Lake is even more fantastic; with the reflection in the water of the flowers clustering around the ice-covered peaks, and the spectacular panorama of yellow leaves and red maples growing round the lake. Unfortunately, it was a bit windy there is no reflection but the fall colors is nice enough with misty drizzly rian.
Another spectacle is that the water neither brims over the bank in the rainy summer and autumn, nor runs dry in the winter and spring, even when there is a long dry spell. Local Tibetan people praise it as "a precious gourd that will never be poured full or dried up." At the time of bitter winters, the lake is frozen over with a depth of 60 centimeters

well, let me be the first to congratulate you on this wonderful mother nature scene.
looking at it, its hard to believe this isn't a painting!
its amazing how the water intersects all the autumn colors, splits it right down the middle.
my favorite part is how you used the trees as an anchor along the bottom.

Hello WAy ,
What a gorgeous view ! The colors are , may be , a little too saturated . But they are so wonderful that I can understand that you wanted to show them at their best ;) .
siudzi (23959) 2013-02-07 13:05
The pic looks like an outstanding postcard! Love the perfectly executed saturation result and fantastic composition taken with a superb sense of depth. Very well done!
mkamionka (24583) 2013-02-07 13:07
spectacular view! Great POV and perfectly composed!
I love the vivid colors. The lake itself has an amazing unique color. It is beautiful framed with the colorful vegetation. The slight fog hanging in the middle of the mountain adds an interesting touch. Very atmospheric capture.
holmertz (26982) 2013-02-07 13:12
Nature was very generous with showing all its finest colours here. The view is breathtaking and the blue water, partly close to turquoise, is very elegantly surrounded by mainly red, green and yellow. The exposure and sharpness are as perfect as always.
Gigidusud (8106) 2013-02-07 13:50
Fantastic landscape with splendid autumn colors.I like a lot!
papagolf21 (76611) 2013-02-07 13:51
Magnifique composition automnale s'apparentant à une peinture.
La beauté du paysage, des couleurs, du sujet, tout est parfaitement rendu.

This pic no needs comments,it's enought to open the eyes and dream...fantastic capture of the autumn in Sichuan country,the best way to take colors and landscape and a the usual elegant big border too.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
kasianowak (2271) 2013-02-07 14:21
Incredible autumn colours. I really like the contrast between the splendid colour of the water and the red foliage. As always - great composition.
subhendu_bagchi (16590) 2013-02-07 15:21
wow, just like painting... So many colours are there to enhance the beauty of the pallet... Composition is nice (though I think a bit panoramic frame will look better). Light is superb... Just love to see it. Excellent. Tfs.
Have a nice time.
npecanhuk (53919) 2013-02-07 15:31
Wonderful natural spot!
Very beautiful and pleasant-looking picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,
ACL1978 (5793) 2013-02-07 18:16
Wonderful balance here between the exploding color of the lower part of the frame and the muted misty upper third, Way. Really unique mist too, hovering as it is off the ground, giving you a clear and unobstructed look at the blue water and the surrounding foliage. Pin sharp as far as the eye can see here, and a really peaceful scene. As always, wonderful work!
cargus (6468) 2013-02-07 21:53
Superb landscape, beautiful blue colors, well framed and rendered, image well done.!
Angshu (51174) 2013-02-08 0:52
Sabaidie again Way
The tinge of autumn colours in the FG are quite delicious. We miss this spectacle in india, as our country is mainly evergreen vegetation. What I also like is the hint of late sunlight on the far end of the hill. The blue of the lake cuts across all the warm colour tones...beautiful indeed!
timecapturer (30394) 2013-02-08 2:43
stunning shot this! Not just because of the exquisite autumn colours but because of the atmosphere of the light and the way you have managed it. Beautiful!
Have a great weekend - Brian.

Um abraço Gonçalo

This is the moment when JZG shows off its autumn splendour with burst of stunning contrasting colors. I can't think that I've seen anything of its' kind that betters it, it's perfect and I'd hang that on my wall with great pride and I think you could not ask for anything better. You have captured the scene so beautifully when nature lavishes its best on you. We just need to get out of our comfort zone and surrender to god's creation. Very well done Way,
Top notch image, My compliments

Well met again dear Way,
Another amazing place in your rich travels catalogue and another beautiful photograph, a small diamond where someone can find all the colours, lines and shapes. A unique manifestation of nature's beauty, calmness and richness.
Thank you for sharing. Many greetings and best wishes!
PaulVDV (15017) 2013-02-11 12:44
I've visited Jiuzhaigou in summertime. So then no autumn colours of the leaves like on this picture. But I do remember the water in the lakes had such wonderful colours.
Here the contrast between the red leaves and the blue water is extraordinary. What a wonderful combination.
At the other side of the lake splendid yellow tones alternate with green ones.
Excellent capture of the fog hanging near the mountain slopes.
This really is a magnificent view.
Best regards, Paul
danos (74064) 2013-02-12 22:47
excellent the view of this section of the Long lake,with the blossom tree on the foreground to dominates the image as adding contrast in it.
I like the beauty of the place as the endless view of it.

Fascinating autumn view in vivid color, good pov to frame the lake in between the mountains, clear to show the beautiful geographical feature, distinct photo, thanks for sharing an impressive nature view.
daddo (18517) 2013-02-20 14:43
Hi Way. maybe this was the lake which a group of Chinese tourists were telling me about when I met them at Plitvice lakes in Croatia. They were not that impressed by the park and kept saying that there is much more grandeur and beauty in a particular Chinese park. This must be it! Wonderful, magical, uplifting and that's just your photo. The place must be even more incredible when one walks around and absorbs the atmosphere and the silence. Regards. Klaudio.
adores (28248) 2013-02-20 15:49
I haven't visited this region of China! It's a very beautiful landscape, with great colours - the water and these trees in foreground are really eye catching - seems you have chosen very well the season to go there!
cornejo (18130) 2013-02-21 3:31

Hello, wonderful color range and you were lucky to capture a bit of fog to help create some atmosphere. I see you have been saving this photo for awhile.
You chose an excellent point of view up high to gaze out upon the lake. TFS,

tatadalou (3273) 2013-02-27 11:24
Another great shot, as usual. There's a great explosion of colours in this landscape. That's so nice !
maria-v1981 (10403) 2013-03-09 10:49
A colourful, well composed shot. I believe this is my favourite in your series on this subject. The lake colours are exotic and pleasing. GExcellent clarity and contrast and I like how you have, through an excellent DOF portrayed the distant mountain peak. Amazing framed and cropped for maximum impact. Magnificent capture!
Have a nice week start,
artesia (957) 2013-04-02 22:36
I envy you so much... your photos are incredible...sigh.
Beautiful framing with so much intense color over the blue lake...
I can put this photo in my living room... and smile every time I see it :-)
nikkitta (5904) 2013-04-05 9:03
So no reflections but a beautiful low capture of the very colorful vegetation, all green games and orange one along with the mountains form a natural frame at the turquoise lake
Note and frame super
Waiting for more shots from Siochuan, TFS
marabu61 (3952) 2013-04-23 7:08
I know I am very late, but I couldn't help myself to comment on this beauty of a photograph.
The pleasant autumn colors of the trees, the gorgeous lake and the clouds whafting trough the hills on the opposite shore, it all adds up to a very attractive composition.
have a good evening
