On my recent visit to Beijing I got to revisit the Back Lakes of Beijing during much better weather than my former visit. It was freezing cold, but clear blue skies and this time around – the lakes were frozen, turning the lakes into mirrors and adding to the very impressive effects.

 

Since it’s all covered in recent posts, I’ll just let you enjoy the frozen sunny stroll…
