Stillness in the chaos
This is a stitched image taken at the Haizi Mountain (海子山), situated between Litang and Daocheng, it is the largest geographical remain of ancient glaciers in Tibetan Plateau (Daocheng Ancient Ice Cap). There are total 1,145 varies sizes lakes on the ancient glacial rock basin, averaging altitude of 4,500 meters, with the highest peak towers over 5,020 meter.
Being at such altitude, strong wind, severe climate shifts between day and night, seasons change, making its view changes from minute to minute. Almost 2 hours after departed from our lunch spot, Litang, we arrived at this beautiful place, near the top of Haizi Mountain, midst rocks and lakes, strong wind and snow, for a moment everything became still, and I took this image. The picture was stitched from 4 captures of Canon 5DII with EF 70-300/4.5-5.6L IS.
