Westlake in HangZhou is about 5.6 squares KM. In the beginning, it was
only a small pond. However, since the Tang Dynasty it has evolved into a
magnificent lake. There are many islands in the lake, but nothing beats
this beautiful island calls GuShan Dao, literally translated simply means
Lone Hill Island. During the height of the Tang Dynasty a bridge was built
in the island, they call the bridge SiLengQiao. Its purpose was to connect
the island with mainland. Legend has it that, the bridge was the favorite
spot of a legendary prostitute in ancient China, Su Xiao Xiao. She liked
it so much that she even requested herself to be buried there when she
Seen here was one of the many islands in West Lake. The light was just so
beautiful; some fog but not too thick. It has created that wonderful
ambience. I couldn't help but to take a few shots. I figured, color
wouldn't come out well under such condition, thus I applied a sepia
filter. This one turned out just fine.
