Photographer's Note

The monsoon in Yunnan province had arrived early, they said. During my short 24 hour stop in Dali the rain did not cease for a minute. Dali, situated in the west of Yunnan Province, has an area of 28,500 square kilometers with a population of 3 million. Dali possesses one of the country's seven freshwater lakes - Erhai Lake and is surrounded by snow capped mountains. A a jewel to behold, they said. (take a look: http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/Asia/China/South/Yunnan/Dali/photo361618.htm)
I just have to believe them and return another time, when the clouds are not hovering just above the lake making visiblity of the perimeter impossible let alone the surrounding countryside. BUT in the rain you get nice reflections -- every cloud has a silver lining.
