Awesome shot. Im surprised that the lake hasn't frozen over but what a contrast of colour here. Beauty in the Hands that created it.
A lovely blue 'diamond' lake framed by the mountains all 'round, make for a breath taking picture,that stands out and shouts 'here I am' Yes, we need color,but in this shot the blue is enough, ringed by those rugged mountains. 1 more winner! j.e.s.
this scenery is amazing if u think about the mountains and the navy blue water. its just breath taking to me in my opinion
La Obra Expresa Belleza... También Habla De Perfección Más Allá De Cualquier Propósito Simple. Nos Enseña Lo Profundo De Lo Espiritual Y Lo Natural. Que Solo Se Obtiene A Través De Grandes Sacrificios Y Sufrimientos. Para Hacer O Lograr Que La Manifestación Del Gozo (o Vivencia) Sea Plena.
Stunning, spectacular. Stunning vision of beauty nature so well captured. Feels a lightness when looking at this picture and it is a place that makes you want to go there to see with our eyes and be part of a natural beauty like this. Great photography.
Paul Nicklen — 'Azure Lake' Photo of the Day. A landscape photographer reads a landscape photo like a map for information, as a record of travel, and to document what was found. Upon reaching a clearing, or a highpoint, or a vista where the way forward is clear, there is time for the climber or hiker to decide: Where to? What next? In this photo the morning sunrise was not evident, the light was dull and sky overcast, but the landscape scene a thrilling one nonetheless. —GaryConn
There is another similar jiaming Lake, well-known as "teardrop of angel", in taiwan.
