Photographer's Note

A view of part of legendary Mirror Lake in Jiuzhaigou valley or "Valley of Nine Villages" in Tibetan, situated at 2500m above sea-level in Aba Tibetan & Qiang Autonomous Prefecture at the border of Tibetan Himalayan Plateau in Northern Sichuan Province. Captured on a beautiful calm morning, not a breath of wind and the deep blue water was so unbelievably still when nature had combined exactly the right ingredients to create truly stunning reflections.

The deep blue colour is caused by high concentration of calcium carbonate which forms different shades of blue to their depths and dazzle with color in the sunshine. The water is crystal clear that the bottom is always visible and at times it is difficult to distinguish the submerged dead tree trunks and the one that is outside.
ND graduated filter was used to strike the right balance of exposure.


It does look so much better in real life than this humble shot of mine can show......
