photoblog image Arrow Bamboo Lake

Arrow Bamboo Lake

 

The name comes from the bamboo that grew around this lake and is the bamboo that Giant Pandas feed on. The bamboo lives for approximately 60 years and  flowers only once in it's lifetime then dies and unfortunately this happened a couple of years ago.

Very different colour in the water.
Aussie: The lakes are very clear and all have different shades, depending on the amount of minerals in their soil.

What a story line, Aussie. That's like me living to my age and only blooming once, then promptly kicking the bucket. So sad. sad But if I looked this beautiful, I don't think I could possibly mind!
Aussie: It would have complimented the water nicely.
Wow - amazing colours!
Aussie: And they are real, this is 2 photos merged to display most of the side shore of the lake. Otherwise it is pretty well as they were taken.

Everyone has said what I wanted to say so - WOW!
Aussie: Thank you Brian, this is one area that you just can't stop wanted to take just one more pic of. We only visited a few of the many lakes here.

What a beautiful landscape. Fantastic
Aussie: All the landscape in this area is just gorgeous.
You caught a superb scene Aussie. The colours are stunning!
Aussie: One of my co-workers asked if I photoshopped the colour. I doubt you could come up with this clear beautiful blue even with photoshop. The whole area was just gorgeous.
A besutiful scene nonetheless, and the clarity of that water is amazing. smile
Aussie: Thank you Alexandra

This looks almost surreal. Absolutely beautiful scene. I didn't know that about bamboo. Somehow I believed it to be a renewable resource?
Would be great to see some giant pandas...eh?
Aussie: Thank you for dropping by and commenting. I don't know if it refers to all bamboo or just this type.

Oh my gosh! What a truly amazing scene, those colours and the crystal clear water too. Wow!
Aussie: It was an amazing place and we missed stopping in at half the places due to time restraints. Would love to return and spend 2 days just walking through it.
