Qué buena foto de este bello paisaje, parece una pintura, pero se siente tan real, por la atmósfera creada por la niebla que nos transporta y parece que estamos en el lugar! Gracias National Geographic!

WOOOOOW this photo is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful I have seen. The subtleness of the color palette make the image so real that actually transport the viewer to the place, communicating the precise feelings. Everything is perfect

It seems to me that bridge is crossing between our world and the world of mystery in the palace and behind the trees.perfect moment to capture the palace

Summer Palace, what makes this a Photo of the Day?  A timely title in context of summer.  Asymmetrical, leading eye composition.  Mysterious content shrouded in rising fog.  Subtle light and pastel colouring.  Gary
