Situated along the south eastern slopes of the towering Jade Dragon Snow Mountain (5500 meters) and surrounded by mountains on all sides, the diamond-shaped basin of Lashi lake watershed is a spectacular setting for exploring the surrounding rural areas with its abundant of natural resources. At an elevation of 2500 meters, Lashi is the largest highland lake in Lijiang County, the grassy marshland on the banks of this picturesque lake is paradise to thousands of birds, wetland animals and plants and large bird migration takes place every year usually in early winter to escape bitter cold of northern Yunnan. This scenic place and its surrounding basin is also home to some 10,000 ethnics Naxi and Yi minorities who depend upon the watershed’s resources for their livelihood.
Just a simple picture of a lovely place to be, Lashi lake. It is a cool morning in spring, still and bright – the echos from dotted of villages can be heard from this shooting location, isolating me from the rest of the world. I have to confess to being lazy here and just watching the panorama, but l simply love the feeling of tranquility of a very very peaceful place..

Hello Abmdsudi - A fine POV and a well seen and creatively composed image. Attractive light and colour. I would have liked to see just a little more sky to give the poles mare breathing space, but a super shot. Warm regards rosemary

Un caro abbraccio

une tres belle lumiere pour une composition delicate
c'est tres bien fait
Bartleby (13532) 2012-05-15 12:39
yep I can definitely feel the atmosphere here! Beautiful picture with those nests in the FG, very eye-catching. And they stand in contrast with the blue background. Plus you've got three bonuses: the fisherman, the reflection and those birds to complete the picture. Nice!
Fis2 (84020) 2012-05-15 12:44
I like POV and composition.
Superb light and colours.
Photo has climate.
patdeph (35748) 2012-05-15 12:48
wooow, the warm light is wonderful, and I love the contrast of the yellow nets with the blue landscape!The landscape is superb, I regret not to have seen it from this place, and I think that the lonely boat add a great charm to the compo.
brianmcc (6099) 2012-05-15 13:21
this is a wonderful composition. you have positioned the nets perfectly in the frame with the lead in from the left hand side. the browns, yellows and blues all work very well together. the little boat is also perfectly positioned and balances the picture very nicely. the mountains in the background help frame the image.
ourania (29445) 2012-05-15 13:24
a wonderful picture that describes very well the beauty and tranquility of this idyllic place and turns the fishing nets into elegant works of art. How lovely they look, part of them seen against the view of lake, mountains and sky, part lying on the ground offering great depth and amazing textural effects. Lighting is just exquisite. I love the marvellous chromatic tones and their ...harmonious contrasts, the gentle reflections, the partial view through the transparent net and the refreshingly tranquil atmosphere. How insignificant our "important" and pressing concerns seem in a peaceful, pure and lovely place like this. Congratulations and many thanks!
All the best,
holmertz (39569) 2012-05-15 13:27
Another splendid composition. The yellow nets look so carefully laid out that I get an impression that every fold has been arranged by Salvador Dali. They really remind me of some of his paintings. The serenity of the clear water and the fisherman in his boat is a wonderful background.
adramad (36959) 2012-05-15 15:53
A beautiful image that conveys a suggestion of great peace and tranquility, set nets in the foreground, giving a unique effect, beautiful behind the serene waters, and the line of mountains.
The softness of color and light in the morning, contribute to the idyllic atmosphere and special.
Well done. I love it.
Have a nice day.

kato (11630) 2012-05-15 16:52
You're capturing well this lake side by a good composition and excellent tone, so it's interesting and impressive to see the lake with reflection of mountain and mountains surrounding a lake. Here seems to a tranquil place as this title. And , it's effective in two yellow fishnets which lie for a long in the lakeside.
Have a nice day.
npecanhuk (63604) 2012-05-15 17:00
That's a wonderful picture!
I just miss a bit more of sharpness, but exposure, colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent and really pleased me!
TFS - congrats,
jusninasirun (17160) 2012-05-15 17:26
Salam my friend.
You have chosen a fine angle of Yashi Lake. The shot depicts the activities around this beautiful place. The nets and the fisherman on a small boat balances well in this wonderful setting. Nice work and good contrasting image in the frame.
Thanks and have a nice day.
siamesa (27737) 2012-05-16 0:57

dkmurphys (48088) 2012-05-16 1:45
Wonderful atmosphere along the lake. Well composed with those fishing elements. Very artistic image.
All the best.
jhm (137668) 2012-05-16 1:57
A tranquil morning, this is explicit to see with the nets in foreground and the quiet water in background.
Very well presentation, excellent captured.
Nice done, TFS.
Have a nice Wednesday,
josepmarin (57697) 2012-05-16 2:28
You have cleverly organized the elements in this composition.
I love the strong graphism of the nets and the poles in foreground, and its nice contrast with the landscape of the lake, the boat of the fisherman, the flying birds, and the mountains in background. The reflections increase the beauty of the ensemble.
The light is magnificent and provides a high chromatic quality to this clear image.
sacimar (25975) 2012-05-16 6:26
this is an interesting image, I like the composition, you captured a good scene, light and colors play an important role also here, nice job,

Hello Abmdsudi ,
Splendid morning light.
Great atmosphere on this shot.Perfect composition.
Waylim (25184) 2012-05-16 8:45
thanks for all the ownderful critique and comments.
This truly is a very peaceful and tranquil morning. The fish net make wonderful foreground of this dialy life style image. It show and depicted the way of life here in the rural China. As the country grow, this type of places and way of life is not as common to see anymore, which was the charm of China. Now many smaller towns are turning into large cities and so polluted with more cars. Used to be more bicycles. I saw two accident happen right in front of me when I was there.
Great quality shot. Thanks.

The photo art is spectacular fishing nets in the foreground. The landscape in the background is superb. light and color, sharpness and depth are remarkable. Bravo.
Have a nice day
danos (85221) 2012-05-17 1:10
great the scenery this morning in the beach,with specific nets to dry on the beach.I like the existence of the warm colours of the scene, the calmly surface of the lake, as the Mts on the backdrop that complete the beautiful shot.
jemaflor (83046) 2012-05-17 9:25
Very beautiful shot, perfectly composed with a diagonal and an interesting depth effect, I like these colors between warm tones in the fg and blue color for the water, well the detail with boat in the bg.
emilbo (22410) 2012-05-17 16:28
La belle lumière du matin donne une merveilleuse photo avec l'aide du photographe naturellement. Merveilleux contraste entre les couleurs chaudes en avant-plan et le bleu foncé derrière. Bien vu.
Bravo!... et toutes mes amitiés,

Hello dear Abmdsudi
A fascinating capture, with incandescent light. The nets in the foreground and the fishing boat in the background set the scene beautifully. A wonderfully balanced image, superbly lit and composed.
Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day
eldancer1 (26790) 2012-05-18 9:06
Indeed! Mornings are my favorite time of the day. Nice capture and good timing on getting the birds in the picture. Awesome lighting and excellent colors with good saturation. Very well done, tfs.
Cricri (104511) 2012-05-18 12:46
Un matin calme et magique dans la lumière, j'aime la couleur chaude des filets contre l'arrière plan plus froid, les reflets, la barque et les oiseaux , vraiment et toujours une très jolie composition
nikkitta (14354) 2012-05-18 12:58
Hola Abmdsudi ,
Great compo with the nets at the FG and the beautiful landscape at the BG, great and good contrast between both
But what call the attention are the birds and the small boat
Note is, as always a great introduction
Congrats and TFS

Kielia (23287) 2012-05-19 9:26
what a fantastic impression of the fishing nets on the marshland. It is a magic atmosphere that you have captured here. The contrast of the colors is remarkable and the morning light is fantastic! My compliments also for the touching note!
Angshu (55295) 2012-05-20 21:08
A thoughtfully done composition which comes out beautifully. Your low POV highlights the drying nets as they create a lead-in from the corner as well. The contrast between these brown tones & the blue in the BG with the mountains is excellent. The small detail which adds a lot to this image is the silhouette of the fisherman, though small, but prominent! Beautiful!
jmdias (54123) 2012-05-21 3:04
very nice use of these golden nets. I liked the contrast of the colors with a touch of wide landscape ahead. beautiful compo, well done.
zanzi (13622) 2012-05-21 12:08
Lighting is particularly good.
I also like the composition. Very original.
CLODO (29914) 2012-06-16 1:33
As I was away for a month, I miised many good pictures on the site.
I like the contrasting colors of this one, the delicate framing and the fisherman silhouette on his boat in the background.
thebest (4276) 2012-10-24 3:33
Wonderful photo really has the WOW Factor - the colours & POV are excellent & I love the birds flying into the scene... love it!!!

Once agains a beautiful picture. Composition,

Kamilutka (8095) 2012-12-08 13:22
Beautiful, deep colors. I like the contrast and composition, but what really strikes me is the originality.
adidas5nb (4973) 2013-05-02 20:42
i dont know why but i just love this pic.the nets form an unusual formation and shapes that attract .greta soothing light,and the you have placed the boat to the T.i can feel the tranquility indeed.
