I had a wonderful trip to Qinghai Lake in last few days. The wild flower are blooming by the lake side in summer. The image shows the Milky way in the Summer Triangle appears dazzling over the colorful field of blooming Pedicularis (pink), Adenophora (purple) and Lithospermum (blue) flowers.
Thinking about the biological view at planet Earth … are we alone in the vast ocean of the universe? Should there be the same scenery as seen from another place of the Milky Way?
Save Earth and respect life.

Thank you, Jeff.
