Crystal pools glisten among drifts of mists and legend. Jiuzhaigou Reserve, Sichuan Province, China. Yamashita’s photographs of China’s Jiuzhaigou Reserve will appear in the March 2009 issue of National Geographic, and can be viewed now online here. The pictures accompany an article by Edward Hoagland about the reserve.

“The geology in this part of the Tibetan Plateau is not granite, like the Sierras, but seabed, like our Rockies, so its limestones, dissolving, color the waters emerald or turquoise in a certain light or enhance the mirroring of an azure sky,” writes Hoagland.
