Photo of the Day: Great Lakes


Our Photo of the Day series this week shares works from photographer Pavel Dvorak. Of this shot, he says:

This picture is from the same place as yesterday’s picture of Tibetan horse races — Litang in Sichuan Province. Altitude here is 4,500m (14,763ft) above sea level, with many of the peaks going up way beyond 6,000m. The scenery in these locations is breathtaking, not only for visitors, but even for the locals who see it every day. This is why so many lakes are sacred here. This one is as well. It is hidden inside the mountains behind a small village with a funny name — Fifty.

Pavel is a Slovak content creator based in Shanghai. He moved to China in 2009 after receiving a double major in Chinese culture-language in Czech Republic. He organizes cross-cultural business events and recently began taking his business clients beyond the big cities and out to off-the-beaten-path adventures. Pavel’s works have been published in various media internationally, and awarded at the International Movie Festival Karlovy Vary. You can check out Pavel’s website here.
