While walking along a lake in Jiuzhaigou National Park, I noticed the clouds reflected in its still, blue waters. The water is so clear that the clouds and leaved trees above the lake meet the ancient, fallen tree trunks at the bottom of the lake. Looking into the lake, the disorientation disrupts our sense of reality. I captured this scene using 35mm film (Fujifilm Superia 400) on my Yashica T4 Super, scanned the negatives as digital files, and resized the digital files to satisfy uploading requirements. No alterations. I noticed these clouds on a quiet afternoon on September 12, 2012.
