Photographer's Note

There is a famous Chinese saying: "There is heaven above, Suzhou and Hangzhou below". The main attraction of Hangzhou is the West Lake, a lagoon, described by a 12th-century visitor as "a landscape designed by a painter".

In response to Claude: The boats are visiting two miniature stone pagodas. Each is around 2 meters high and has five equally spaced windows. On the night of the Autumn Moon Festival, lanterns are put inside the windows. Together with a third, the pagodas are known collectively as "Three Pools Mirroring the Moon".
