Photographer's Note

Moon Bay (月亮湾), located in the Lake Kanas ( 喀纳斯湖 or meaning 'lake in a gorge' in Mongolian) area which is northern Xinjiang, bordering Kazakhstan, Mongolia and Russia. It is China's deepest freshwater lake.

We've caught northern Xinjiang in late fall,we arrived in a time of gold and yellow. The weather forecast is that there will be a Cold Change and there will be snow, The nature reserve will be closed till spring next year,

The gentle and seductive reverse S curve is what gives it its name in this part of Lake Kanas, a crescent.
