The placid and serene lakes there are known for their mirror like reflection. The water is so clear that you can see the bottom of the lakes.
The water is so blue as it has no living plants in there; trees fallen over in the lake are progressively calcified.

The last two photos are from the news agencies to which credit is due.
This week’s DP challenge is Path.
While visiting the Plitvice national Lakes in Croatia, we walked on this curvy path.
While my previous post shows a birds-eye view of the boardwalk; this photo shows a close up of the boardwalk.

There are many lakes in Jiuzhaigou, China that are mirror like.
Here are a couple of examples that attest to this.

Lake Galvė is a lake in Trakai, Lithuania. It has 21 islands, and one of them houses Trakai Island Castle ( see my previous posts). The lake and most of the other lakes surrounding the castle and city have myths and legends connected to them, of which most contain a tragic love story. The lakes and castle are therefore also said to be haunted.
It found it very serene – with the sailing boats and the blue sky.
Hope the serene scenes bring serenity and inner peace.
