After few days in the Jiuzghaiou Valey we decided to do some exploring into opposite direction, so we followed the road and after about 13km of walking we got to this tiny village. There were maybe 12-15 houses there, no more, but the village could boast really beautiful Tibetan temple. Its golden roof shined in the sun and we could see it from distance. There was nobody inside, but the praying drums were spinning so definitely people were going there on daily basis, but in the whole village we met only two girls who were in the local shop.

un'altra bella visione della Cina vista attraverso il tuo obiettivo fotografico, anch'essa caratterizzata da colori brillanti e decisi e da nitidezza notevole oltre che da unacomposizione impeccabile.
Complimenti anche per questa ultima tua proposta.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Excellently composed and well framed with the flag at the right.
The mountains and the few clouds in the deep blue sky make a great backdrop but the real beauty here is that wonderful architecture. Real attractive shapes of the roofs and very colourful walls and architectural decorations.
The picture has an excellent sharpness and depth.
If this place is in the vicinity of Jiuzhaigou, I don't understand how I have missed it. Is it close to Langmusi?
Best regards, Paul

viaggiare in un grande paese come la Cina, vuol dire vedere molte cose interessanti ed avere molte opportunità fotografiche.
Tu ci stai fornendo molte immagini belle, che ci parlano di questo paese attraverso il tuo obiettivo.

A great capture of this beautiful Tibetan temple. I like the point of view and the lighting, which is ideal to bring out the colours and detail in the architecture.

Fine view of the Tibetean village square, the colors and style are most attractive.
Fine light and sharp details collected. Missing a humen presence, but the vivid colors compensate marvelousely.
Have a nice weekend,

a beautiful looking temple and in an amazing setting. Love your enticing POV and of course the superb clarity and detailing. Magnificent!
Enjoy the weekend - B.

What a remarkable experience to find this place in the middle of nowhere, such a small and almost deserted village with this fine temple. Your photos are always carefully composed and the clarity and colours are always perfect, and this is certainly no exception.

Hello Kamila - Walking through the landscape on foot must have allowed you to notice details that would be missed using motorised transport and also it would have given you a real sense of place.
This temple was a lovely find and how beautifully you have presented it with your upward POV. It looks wonderful against the deep blue sky and the hills. I am surprised that it was situated in such a tiny village and I wonder which came first, the temple or the houses? Buddhist temples are usually built in auspicious locations so I'm thinking the former.
Noel_Byrne (20810) 2014-03-22 8:58
It must be so unusual and so beautiful to find a place like this, and there be nobody there. I guess if this was in any city, it would be thronged with people, as it is a stunning building. Your note really makes me feel a sense of isolation looking at this, but a pleasant type if that's possible. You chose a perfect view on this temple too, the upwards point of view makes it seem very majestic.
I think I can see the face of a dragon in those wispy clouds too!
Thanks as always

Nice shot of the monastery under the clear blue sky. The mountains provide an amazing setting for the monastery. Nice portrayal of Buddhist Pagoda style of architecture. I too came across a deserted monastery as this one in Ladakh which is adjacent to Tibet. The flutter on the large yellow flag presents dynamism to the otherwise idle scene. Nice shot with excellent clarity, good colours and bright light. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful elevated Jiuzghaiou temple, in pyramid layers and articulate artworks, with bold colors.
Thanks for sharing,

Beautiful architecture of this temple in golden and pink colors. Did you know that this form of building is resistant to earthquakes?
krzychu30 (15332) 2014-03-22 23:25
faktycznie,ta Swiatynia jest piekna,ale mi obok samych walorow architektonicznych i artystycznych podoba sie sama twoja prezentacja i znakomita perspektywa jaka tu zastosowalas.
Poza tym kolorystyka jest super i ten mocny kontrast kolorystyczny tez napewno pomaga w uzyskaniu tak swietnego efektu graficznego.

Fabulous shot of the beautiful Tibetan temple.Lovely colors and excellent sharpness in this image.Very well done. TFS.
emka (73329) 2014-03-22 23:55
Odkryłaś piekną świątynie w okolicach Jiuzhaigou. dziwne, ze nie bylo nikogo wokół. Ale pewno malo kto sie tam zapuszcza, zwłaszcza z zachodnich turystów,. Samo Jiuzhaigou jest nie lada wyzwaniem a co dopiero okolica. Piekna światynia i ta stupa, całkiem jak w Tybecie. dekoracje na dachu, zlote jelonki i i te bębny jak ze świątyń w Lhasie.

adramad (35375) 2014-03-23 10:06
Splendid image shows a magnificent POV in this beautiful Tibetan temple, a wonderful building that has the charm of these two hills in the background, the beautiful blue sky with light clouds such as pictorial, gives the ideal complement to this lovely work.
Excellent resolution and very good focus.
Beautiful colorful in very natural shades.
Very good job. I love it.
Enjoy a happy Sunday.

Compare to the big cities in China, I consider this place in Sichuan very remote. Most Chinese have never traveled there. You had a such adventurous trip in China.
It muse be a great escape from bustle Beijing. This picture was excellently composed, and also very well taken.
Cricri (101397) 2014-03-24 12:20
Très jolie présentation de ce merveilleux temple, avec les montagnes en arrière plan, le ciel est superbe, il y a de beaux contraste des couleurs et une très belle lumière ( pas comme ici en Belgique: froid et de la pluie)
Fis2 (81968) 2014-03-24 13:18
To jest inny "swiat"
Te budowle sa niepowtarzalne.
Lubie ogladac taka egzotyczna dla mnie architekture.
Ciekawe spojrzenie i super kolory.

Beautiful architecture with nice détails, well framed. I like it!
nikkitta (13294) 2014-03-24 15:33
A dream to visit what you want deciding at the moment if going or not, this is the way to find this original isolated temple from which I had a glimse of the bright roofs
Good composition using as a kind of frame a player flag, all in contrast with the great bue sky
corjan3 (2025) 2014-03-24 17:02
It just shows, one needs time there! I visited twice but I did not see this. What a beautiful image in fantastic light with such good exposure control. What more can I say than just sit back and enjoy! Well done.
jemaflor (80752) 2014-03-25 0:28
nice composition with this interesting and beautiful architecture, good effect with blue and pink colors, well too the vertical flag in the right side.
abmdsudi (39634) 2014-03-25 7:08
The sharp in-focus of the temple's complex seems to be screaming for attention drenched in warm light, rich colours and strong contrast. Superbly framed and impressive viewpoint with excellent sense of depth and immense detail. A simple beauty with nice touch of deep blue sky. Superb capture, Congrats, TFS
tedesse (25045) 2014-03-25 8:21
Wspanialy pokaz pieknej chinskiej architektury.
Doskonaly POV, super kolory i ostrosc.
subhendu_bagchi (25258) 2014-03-25 8:46
wow! What a fine wide angle composition you presented here. I like the rich colours. Excellent view of that monastery. Great sharpness and depth. Successfull in every photographic parameter. Excellent work. Tfs.
ChrisJ (94802) 2014-03-25 11:25
The red base and golden pagoda atop it contrast superbly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and the lens barrel distortion from the wide angled shot has been well managed with verticals placed centrally. Good graphism at right with the sunlit urn against the shadowed bg. Tfs!
dip (23520) 2014-03-26 4:06
wonderful image with impressive architectural details,
beautiful colors,especially the sky seems fantastic!
very good lighting and clarity as well,
thanks for sharing,
ourania (26456) 2014-03-26 10:45
your note shows that this picture was taken during an adventurous and exciting trip and enhances the allure of the interesting, isolated site you are presenting. I like very much the comprehensive, upward point of view that gives us a rewarding description of the setting, with excellent details and dynamism. The backdrop is solid and superbly defined too. The colours are vivid and pleasing and I also like the motion evoked by the banner and the clouds. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
mohammad_H (8764) 2014-03-29 21:26

this is a photo that's right up my alley!
love these wide angle scenes with powerful looking architecture.
and the side angle is great too.
excellent light, beautiful clouds seem to cap the photo off nicely.
adores (34408) 2014-04-22 14:46
Just beautiful, the colours, the architecture... It reminds me of some cities I visited in China. A beautiful shot, the light is great and you had a beautiful sky on that day. It must be fantastic to visit such place with no one around.
