This is a photo from Black Dragon Pool Park (Ñ m) in Lijiang, Yunnan Province. It was built in 1737 during the Qing Dynasty and contains several small temples and pavilions. This beautiful park is reputed for having one of the best views of Jade Snow Dragon Mountain, as seen in the background. On this particular day, the sky was cloudless, with a brilliant blue hue that created a tranquil interplay between the water, trees, hill, and mountain.
