The saltwater Tso Moriri Lake, which is about 15,075 feet (4,595 meters) above sea level, is approximately 18 miles (29 kilometers) long and up to five miles (eight kilometers) wide. Picturesquely situated in secluded, breathtakingly beautiful Changthang Valley, the high-altitude Tso Moriri Lake is fewer than 155 miles (250 kilometers) southeast of Leh. Travelers can only visit with a permit. Flanked by lofty mountains, this serene lake and the area around it attract a range of wildlife, including migratory birds, marmots, wild asses, and (rarely spotted) Tibetan wolves. Nomadic herders of goats, yaks, and cows live in the lake's vicinity. Tsomoriri is an administratively declared Wetland Reserve.

A very idyllic place beautifully caught by your lens! I admire the clear blue water of the lake and the way the shore line frames your image!
Perhaps a little more contrast on the hills would have added a chromatic effect?
All the best and welcome on TE!

This showed up on your profile page and instantly caught my attention. With a majority of my favorite color throughout this shot, it was impossible to pass by and not take a closer look. The overall visual may be minimal, but I can't help but enjoy the many subtle changing shades of blue that abound in this shot.
For good contrast too, you have the snow capped mountain off in the distance. So many interesting layers of color and natural element, and you did well to collect it all in a nice frame. Simple and attractive. Would be fun to sit by and skip stones across the lake. :)

This looks like a truly refreshing place. The color of the water is delightful. I wonder what the water temperature is, I suspect it is good for polar bears.
