The Valley of Nine Villages has been said to be one of the most scenic places on Earth. To me it was breathtaking and it was not even autumn when it is at its most colourful. It was a misty day, hence the bright sky,and the blue reflections in the water of one of the many lakes in this karstic region is natural and is caused by the high calcium carbonate content of the water.
The only PP done was reduction for uploading and subsequent sharpening.

Beautiful shot, This brings back lot of memories for me. I was here a couple of years ago. It is one of the most beautiful places/nature in China.
Love the over all green landscape and the blue of the lake and the lovely reflection. The over cast sky gives mood to the whole place.

Having visited Chile (Santiago, Valparaiso and Easter Island) just two months ago, I am interested in seeing more of sites in the country. This is one place I did not know of, but it is spectacular, and photographed to perfection. It's also clear that for me is that some of the most beautiful places on earth — Italy, Indonesia and Chile — are also on such seismically active.

I gather that it is hard not to take pretty photos in this place. The colors and scenery are stunning and they made me stop literally every minute for another shot. Well done fr capturing the emerald tones of the water and lovely reflections on the lake surface. Good POV and composition.
Thanks for sharing :-)
