Bathing in Wet Sunshine

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Yibo Wang

Nature opened a scroll of painting, a panorama of the 'Bathing in Wet Sunshine' unfolded. In August 2012, I travelled with my family to Sayram Lake located in Xinjiang. At the time we arrived, a large cumulonimbus cloud was formed above the lake. Disappointed for a while, we were soon intrigued by the wonderful scene of the sun shower, which came out from the bottom center of the cloud. The hazy, wet lights were shining on the other side of the lake, on grasslands, mountains and valleys. Everything seems covered with shinning gauze...

Location: Sayram Lake, Bole, Bortala, Xinjiang, China
