Photographer's Note

This is the "Summer Palce", in Beijing, but in this case I'm showing it in winter. What we see here is the famous Marble Boat, ordered by the Empress Cixi, who has also been responsible for the reconstruction of this palace (in the 19th century), the place where the emperors used to spend the hot summers. The boat is painted in white to imitate the marble. As it was taken in winter, the lake was completely frozen.
