Tiger Lake, one of the lakes in the Shuzheng Valley, 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.

Jiuzhaigou , the Valley of Nine Villages, is a magical place. And what beautiful scenery we have here. It tempts me to upload another image from there. Very well done indeed. It is sheer pleasure to view.

glia lberi che crescono nell'acqua sono la sorpresa piacevole di questa fotografia che ci mostra un altro straordinario aspetto della natura della Vina.
Belli i colori e semplice ed efficace, come tuo solito, la composizione.
Ciao e buona domenica

Hello dear Kamila,
Back again to China with this wonderfull landscape.
Very good composed.
The rocks with vivid colors in foreground adds a unique taste to your compo. Nice framing and interesting notes.
TFS and best regards

The last legend seems the most dangerous if it contains truth. Crashing water that sounds like a tigers roaring is also something I haven't ever heard. Thinking at the many colours of the forests and the lakes in Jiuzhaigou, the second possibility looks like the most possible one.
Anyway, the picture shows a wonderful piece of nature with the transparent water on the foreground that turns blue a little further, the autumn tones of the leaves, the green forests and the high mountains under a bright blue sky.
Excellent composition and sharpness.
Best regards, Paul

Good evening Kamila,
Relatively long shutter gave the water a "silkey" texture. Yet there is a good dynamism with the current where small height differencials takes the viewer over and across towards the slopes converging on the far side.
Beautiful nature's ccorner, superb light condition, well collected photo.

widok,ktory mowi sam za siebie!
Piekno w najczystszej postaci.Sama natura-zupelne przeciwienstwo mojej wyprawy do Azji(ja wrocilem naladowany olowiem i innymi pierwiastkami ciezkimi ze smogu:)
Pewnie dlatego tak bardzo podoba mi sie twoja seria z Chin(na twoich zdjeciach nawet niebo jest blekitne,co w Hong Kongu bylo raczej niemozliwe:)
A juz calkiem na powaznie to swietnie skadrowana scena z dobrym podzialem na pierszy plan i tlo.
Jakosc zdjecia oraz kolorstyka rowniez super.

A very beautiful scenery here, this looks like a perfect place for trout fishing. The autumnal trees along the roaring river provide very attractive colours.

Attractive scene of Shuzheng Valley's Tiger Lake for the foreground of cascading water over the boulders, red/brown shrub surroundings, then the distant mountains.
The only thing missing from your scene are the tigers.

I love the imaginative names of Chinese mountains, lakes and other elements of nature. The views you found on your journey were invariably as beautiful as their names, and you knew how to make most of that beauty by always finding the right spot and handling your camera the best way. This is no exception.
papagolf21 (101930) 2014-03-02 11:34
Bonsoir, chère Kamila,
Merci de nous offrir une si beau paysage. Le rendu général est excellent, nous avons l'impression de toucher les pierres au bord de l'eau.
Le cadrage est excellent.
Un effet de perspective du meilleur effet également.
cornejo (42307) 2014-03-02 11:34
Hi Kamila, very good photograph of this beautiful and interesting view of the river reaching the lake, very well composed and captured this beautiful image with good sharpness, depth, light and beautiful color. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

Wonderful natural spot!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,
Have a great week,

Hi Kamila. Thank God i cannot see plastic bags caught in the submerged stems of bushes and amongst rocks.Poetic names of places hopefully indicate a respect for nature and the nurturing of such a treasure. I like your description and of course the excellent quality of the photo. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Beau paysage que tu as joliment mis en image. L'eau en mouvement au premier plan "anime" ta photo.

piekna dzika przyroda. Fajne miejsca zaliczylas w Chinach. Ladne ujecie gorskiej rzeki. Wszystko mieni sie kolorami. Przyjemnie popatrzec.
Royaldevon (38844) 2014-03-03 1:16
This shot is much more interesting full size than it appeared on the thumbnail; I'm so glad that I opened it.
You have used the natural features in the river to grab immediate attention but, then, the river itself leads perfectly to the awaiting valley and mountain scenery. Your shot is beautifully composed with a good dof all taken with excellent light control.
Have a great day,
Nicou (142084) 2014-03-03 1:56
L'eau de la rivière est d'une totale pureté sueprbe vue et ocmpo avec la partie blanche la belle végétaiton la vue sur la vallée en fond quelle compo sueprbe.
Bravo et amitié
ourania (45420) 2014-03-03 2:05
a beautiful natural scenery, a sight that's pure, refreshing and invigorating for the senses. I like very much your framing that has enhanced depth, has given the composition a fine balance and naturally draws the viewer into this wonderful place. The various elements of the scenery, their textures and colours are portrayed superbly and their overlapping creates a very fine rhythm. The motion of the water and the suggestive stillness ahead make a very interesting combination. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
SnapRJW (31629) 2014-03-03 2:32
Your photograph is as poetic as the narrative that accompanies it Kamila and it's easy to see why its name has such eloquent and poetic origins. Don't you love the flowery Chinese descriptions! A beautiful shot. Warm regards Rosemary
timecapturer (49288) 2014-03-03 3:25
another stunning shot this. Full of simple natural elements but perfectly placed and captured. Love the sense of peace here broken only by the rush of the waters. Exquisite and a real sense of Nirvana. Beautiful!
Have a great week - B.
mirosu (16227) 2014-03-03 4:28
Great mountains landscape photo, very scenic and beautifully taken. An excellent use of nice colors and superb light. The deep depth of field is perfect. The excellent light and shadow mixture also lends a lovely contrast to the scene. The foaming white water also lends a lovely hue to the scene.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice week.
Oceania (5202) 2014-03-03 6:59
This is another beautiful picture from Jiuzhaigou. The natural setting with rush water is stunning. Also, the picture was perfectly composed and very well taken. Thanks for showing us.
Have a good week!

Ladny widoczek, ciekawe miejsce.
Kadr i kolorystyka super.
Efekt wody robi wrazenie.
emilbo (22616) 2014-03-04 10:07
Je sais pas s'il y a du poisson mais ça semble un bel endroit pour la pêche. Une très jolie scène avec la rangée d'arbres les pieds dans l'eau. Bel effet du ruisseau qui se jette dans le plan d'eau. Une belle présentation et de jolies couleurs.
Toutes mes amitiés,

Tiger Lake... awesome name! Though it looks pretty peaceful and not at all aggressive to me:) Fantastic colors and beautiful composition with the gushing stream in the foreground, so inviting and relaxing..
A piece of beauty.
jcpix (13930) 2014-03-04 18:45
I'm going to guess that it's actually a gentle tigers roar, this looks far too peaceful to be anything that ferocious. :) Just out for another lovely stroll among nature I see, and what do you know...you've managed to bring it to life in still form! The longer exposure allows for that smooth flow of water to really set this in motion and make it breath. Gorgeous colors abound, so distinctly different from the cities hustle and bustle of congestion. This looks and feels very crisp, clean and most welcoming. Superb! Enjoy the new day. Take care.
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2014-03-04 19:38
another great landscape photography. Shot is full with natural beauties. Like those mountains at back. Love the water flows in foreground. Great tonal quality and fine sharpness. Superbly composed shot. Tfs.
fabbs99 (17167) 2014-03-04 23:05
Awesome natural colors in this image of the river.Very well captured with good lighting.Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
abmdsudi (54063) 2014-03-05 7:05
I love the action, the colours and the composition, but this really grabs attention and the clear flow and power of the water is really visible. It's an excellent shot of a really interesting and colourful natural scene. Well done, TFS
adramad (45600) 2014-03-05 7:13
Superb composition, with which you have captured the beauty of this valley, fabulous foreground with the beautiful waters of the lake, ideal color contrasts of trees that cover the different slopes of the mountains, about covering them green and others with the color between brown and pink, very good perspective with the mountains seem to close to the bottom.
Superb sharpness and brightness.
Have a good evening.

danos (97815) 2014-03-06 0:42
fascinating the view of this section of the Tiger lake,with some of the trees to are in the waters and the surrounding Mts on the backdrop to complete perfect the beauty and the charmy of the place.I like the excellent light and colour management as the quality of the scene.
Subhogen (4067) 2014-03-06 1:08
Magnificent view of the lake under bright warm light. Like the contrast between the green water and the red bushes by the lake shore. I hope the last legend was true but I know it is not true because if there were any tigers they would have been long poached for sake of Chinese traditional medicines. Like the fast flowing stream in the Fg and the converging diagonals presented by the hills in the BG. Nicely done, thanks for sharing.
jhm (152902) 2014-03-06 6:10
China an country with a lot nice places where maybe not much visitors come.
These picture a very nice.
You chose a very well angle this cares for depth and perspective.
Everything nice on one point to the end of the picture.
You took a very nice picture with a lovely composition.
The clear sky shows a nice contrast.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,
Cricri (119495) 2014-03-07 10:36

SWEETFREEDOM (24621) 2014-03-08 4:56
i like the p.o.v. you have chosen with the water in fg. i like the autumn colors and details.
ChrisJ (113989) 2014-03-08 11:32
I could have chosen to visit this in place October 2012 but chose instead not to battle the crowds and long ticket queues and just relax in my apartment in Wuxi. So thank you for showing what I missed! Superb nature shot with nice colour, sharpness and saturation. Tfs!
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-03-09 15:43
I can almost hear the rushing water running through this river. Nicely captured with good pov and dof with sharp details. Good lighting. Well done, tfs.
nikkitta (17066) 2014-03-10 18:51
Very interesting note to prsent the capture, I prefer a dangerous and most likely leyend the third one
The second one despicts your capture with the winter golden colors
Like the composition with rocks at the front and water going to the back with changing colors
A great place to be and to take photos
Congrats , have a good week
jemaflor (97245) 2014-03-11 0:24
beautiful landscape well composed with the river and these whirpools in the Fg, good dynamic result, nice light on the view, well made.
Kielia (24077) 2014-03-15 9:45
reading your notes and seeing the photograph made me feel as if I was participating in your wonderful journey and I seeing this with my own eyes. The wilderness of this valley is conveyed very well in this shot. The management of the light is excellent. Fabulous TE contribution and what a pleasure.
