大西洋最后一滴眼泪The last drop of the Atlantic tears

赛里木湖(Sayram Lake):是中国新疆海拔最高、面积最大、风光秀丽的高山湖泊,又是大西洋暖湿气流最后眷顾的地方,因此有“大西洋最后一滴眼泪”的说法。湖水清澈透底,在阳光的照射下,湖面常出现不同的颜色带。画面中从上往下,依次似眉毛、睫毛、眼睛,深蓝色的湖水就是那“一滴眼泪”。Sayram Lake: It is the highest altitude, largest area, and beautiful mountain lake in Xinjiang, China. It is also the last resort of the Atlantic warm and humid airflow, so there is the saying that "the last tear of the Atlantic". The lake is crystal clear, and the lake often has different color bands under the sunlight. From top to bottom, the picture looks like eyebrows, eyelashes, eyes, and the deep blue lake is the "a tear."
