Tranquillity at West Lake 西湖 1984

    Prev Next

    Hangzhou 1984: a misty, dreamlike view of the West Lake and the pavilions on the shore. Only the Chinese can think of making a second lake on an island in the lake.

      Really beautiful!
      Like a watercolour painting!
      Thanks for the note, I wouldn't have known about the lake in the lake. Yes, very Chinese!

      well no mine is actually not on the island in the lake with the lake within, but at dawn on the west side of the lake around our very fab hotel ( the liuzhang villa now known as the State guest house -yes crawling with gaoji ganbu too - but it looks so romantic in this misty morning that I just wanted to share with you...

      Thank you, Alice; now I can enjoy what I missed in 1983 because of that eye infection

      如中国传统水墨画一般。
      现在那里的湖畔景点已经免费参观了,有时间一定再去看看哦!
