There is a place where reflections are a common place. A few thousand metres up from sea level where there are lots of lakes, where mountains are green and water is clear and placid, you can find reflections almost everywhere.
This is up in the mountains of JiuZhiGou, China where lake water has a high concentration of calcium carbonate and mountains rise steeply from the lakes reflecting in the water. The water surface behaves like a mirror ( in fact one of the lakes is known as the mirror lake because of its silvery surface).
The tranquil and picturesque scenes in JiuZhaiGou helps one to transition from the external environment to the inner self.
The serenity and remoteness of the place make it suitable for internal reflections . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Beautiful photos–it looks so peaceful there!
I like taking photos which convey a sense of peace and tranquilty; I am glad that you find peace in the images!
Just beautiful, I would like too.
Thank you thegrandtour1!
Absolutely majestic. Your photo’s evoke a feeling of not only reflection by I’m humbled by the natural beauty. Did you know there’s also a ‘Mirror Lake’ in Yosemite National Park, California USA.
Here’s a view
I think it’s quite extraordinary that two similar scenes of beauty can be enjoyed 1/2 a world apart. So glad you’ve shared your views.
Hi Boomdeeadda, thanks very much for sharing the link. Yosemite is a place which I have not visited yet. Your link makes me want to go there! Michael
Beautiful views and colors of nature.
Thank you Northern Narratives!

Pure tranquillity. Beautiful images, Michael. Bless you.
Hope this tranquility brings some peace and joy to you during this weekend!
Those reflections are stunning!
Thank you Ali!
I am moving JiuZhaiGou highter up on my bucket list every time you post some new photos. 🙂
Just this morning, I was talking to my wife saying I don’t mind visiting JiuZhaiGou again during the fall!
Nice…how many days is a standard tour to JiuZhaiGou?
Depending on whether you only want to concentrate on the lakes and parks in JiuZhaiGou; I would say a week is sufficent. Regards,
So pretty. I especially like the last photo with a portion of the path showing. http://bmoreenergy.wordpress.com
It was this boardwalk where I stood for some time enjoying the view and reflecting. Thank you for the kind comment!
Reblogged this on All Things Geography.
Hope this is good enough thing for Geography!
What a spectacular place although the remoteness would feel a bit intimidating I think.
It is the high altitude that may not be suitable for everyone but the views worth the trip! Regards, Michael

Hi, thank you for the very encouraging comment. It has been raining for the last two weeks which mean I cannot have any major outdoor activities but stay at home posting. Hope my photos don’t disappoint. Regards, Michael
Wonderful balance of the eye – the camera and the man behind..

I like taking photos which convey the peacefulness so that I can take home and peruse them whenever I like, of course, also to share with my readers. Thank you Amy, Michael
