Photographer's Note

The Tianchi Lake is located in Xinjiang of China.

To get there, there was a need to switch buses several times. From normal bus to a smaller bus at the foothill and lastly to an even smaller bus operated on electric instead of fuel. This was to preserve the unpolluted environment of this national park.

The accomodation was actually kazakhstan yurt. The yurt was equipped with a stove and thick blankets for keeping warm at night.

As it was end of winter, ices around the banks of the lake were still visible. The snow-capped Mt. Tianshan was at a much closer view from here too.

This picture was captured during horse-riding in the morn when the sun and the lighting were just nice to reflect the mountainous view on the lake. Sitting on the horseback while admiring the beauty of Tianchi lake, this scenery simply took my breath away. It's no wonder Tianchi Lake is also known as the Heavenly Lake.
