During autumn in Yixian county – located in Huangshan city in East China's Anhui province – Qishu Lake becomes an majestic and idyllic place.
In the early morning, a gentle mist hangs over the water and as the sunlight breaks through the clouds, it transforms the lake into a dreamlike panorama.
The trees lining the lake's edge are painted in brilliant autumn hues, giving the illusion of being inside a scene created by a master oil painter.
